Proud Sappy Mom Moment
In this video, you can see Luke playing guitar on stage at church during worship. Today was his first time doing it, and he played all three services.
That doesn’t sound like a big deal to most of you. I know a lot of musicians and a lot of you use your gifts to serve at church, but for this mama, it was a big deal.
I have always loved music.
I have loved all genres-pop, country, rock, hip hop, contemporary Christian, Christian pop, gospel…all of it. And all of my life I have enjoyed watching people who are gifted at signing or playing instruments. One of the things that made me fall for TJ was his musical talents and gifts. The man can play any instrument he picks up by ear…I mean, how is that even fair for all of us ordinary folks?
That being said, from the moment our kids were born I had dreams of them worshiping God from a church platform. There is just something so amazing about a group of people coming together and making beautiful music to worship our God.
When our kids were small, we encouraged all instruments.
They seemed to have TJ’s natural musical talent so we let them try anything they wanted to try. We have owned everything from a cello to a piano and many in between. But a while back, Luke decided guitar was his new thing.
He became determined to learn and began to teach himself how to play. He then became determined to play on the worship team at our church and went to practices even though he wasn’t playing, just to observe.
He took the initiative to go after something he wanted. He sold his Xbox to focus more on what was important to him. That alone was a proud mama moment. BUT, to see MY CHILD, that I have dreamed of seeing on stage worshiping God finally do that…it’s a whole other level of proud for me.
It was a moment that I can’t explain other than to say I felt like I could look up to God and say, ”we did something right. “
Luke Scott, I couldn’t feel more proud of the young man you are becoming. I am proud of the hard work you put in to make your dreams happen. I’m proud of your servant’s heart and desire to do whatever is asked or needed to make others successful. You are exceptional! I know, I’m mom and a little biased…ok, a lot biased…but you are the best son I could ask God to give me. Thanks for making your mama’s little dream come true! I love you!
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to help him and pour into his life over the years. You all are golden and gems to our family!
