Story – Call Of True Love

Story Of The Call To True Love

]Recently my sister-in-law posted this awesome story on Facebook. After reading it, I decided to translate it into English so many more can read and appreciate this story.



Story Of The Call To True Love

A cruise ship met a deadly disaster on the ocean and was sinking. A couple struggled to get close to the rescue boat, when their turn finally arrived, they faced a dilemma, only one seat left. The man went before his wife and jumped on board the rescue boat to save himself. Now, the woman who was left on the sinking cruise ship, shout to the man..

At this junction, the teacher asked her students: “What do you think this woman would say to the man?” The students filled with passion, all said: “I hate you and I misjudge you!!”

The teacher turned and noticed a student who was silent throughout this discussion, approached and asked him what his thought on this. The student replied: “Teacher, I feel this woman would shout: “Take care of our child!” Teacher got surprised and asked if he knew the story..? This student shook the head and said: “No! But when my mother was sick and dying, that was what she said to my father.” Teacher emotionally replied: “That’s correct answer!”

Teacher went on to relate that the cruise ship indeed sank eventually and the man returned to his village to raise his daughter all by himself. Many years later, the man passed away. The daughter was packing up her father’s belongings when she noticed his diary.

Indeed, when his parents were on board the cruise ship, her mother was at the last stage of cancer. At that critical moment, for survival sake, her father jumped in the rescue boat. Later in his diary, she discovered the truth. In the diary, he wrote: “How I wish to stay with you to the bottom of the ocean. But, I cannot because of our daughter. I have to let you go.. sleep in the deep ocean.”

When the story concluded, the classroom was silent. No one spoke a word.. Somehow, teacher knew that her students understood the story and had learned some important lessons that day. Sometimes it is hard to distinguish the good and evil just by looking at the surface of the situation. One has to dig further to unearth the truth.

The Call Of True Love, What Would You Do?

When I read this story, I knew exactly how the woman felt when she shout: “Take care of our child!” I knew under the same circumstance, I would do likewise. A mother’s heart is constantly weighing down by the welfare of her children. I believe the father’s heart is likewise. I never understood this truth clearly, until I became a step-mother to Michelle in 2007 and a mom to David in 2012. So, my question to you today is :”What would you do?”


Upon reflection, I recalled the love of God. Have you heard of John 3:16

The Bible says:

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

This verse written was from the heart of a father, except that in this case God is the Father. The call of true love is therefore love that is sacrificial and self-denying just like the man and woman mentioned in the story above.  They never put themselves first, rather, the welfare of their daughter comes ahead of their needs. Jesus answered that call to love and to serve as a man, yet never lose sight of God and His calling. Have you received that gift of love found in Jesus and Jesus alone? In your journey this year, to unearth more truth,  I hope you will find abundant joy in knowing Jesus and be known by Him. May you have an awesome week, seeking the truth.

Blessings from ours to yours,

Call Of God Marks Our New Dawn

 Call Of God Marks Our New Dawn!

We would like to announce a project. Every month, we invite a special guest to blog about what’s on her heart.  As women of God, we are precious in the eyes of God. He calls us  effectively to live for Him in whatever roles we play at home and in the society.  In 2015, we like to focus on the ‘Call of God’ in our lives. How God uses us in our various roles to impact our next generations as well as in our work places whether we are moms (working or stay at home), grandmothers, step moms, our professions (callings). God desires that we are His witnesses to His love and compassion, His faithfulness, His grace and mercy and His justice. That we through Him, be vessels for His glory.

Call of God

Call of God

So, what is the call of God? The call of God is often associated with ministry. To serve God full-time is an awesome commitment and admirable. But, God also place us in various workplaces as the exemplary light to bring others to Him. When we ask ourselves what we are passionate about, we are seeking to know His calling in our lives. So hopefully through the sharing from our guests each month, by the end of 2015, you will be able to confirm His calling in your life.

The blog or article would be in a form of an interview with questions to guide and direct. The guest would have to answer the questions as required. For example, begin the interview first with a brief introduction. Then tell us about what you believe God has called you to do? Prior to that, what were you doing? How do you know God had called you? What would you share with  those who believe they are called as you were ( professions or ministry or simply a mom )? Would you do it any other way? Why and why not?

If you have any suggestions and you would like to give to it, please contact Eileen Dick and we will get back to you. If you have a candidate for DOTA, please let us know. We would love to hear from you. Or you have some one you would like to interview, you are welcome to contact us. Thank you, we look forward to serving you better in the future.





Are You Led By Passion?

Are you led by passion in life?

What are you passionate about? Today’s hymn talks about a decision made to ‘follow Jesus’. 5 missionaries gave their lives while living out their faith, full of passion and they changed my life.

One of the great hymns that I learned as a child was this ‘old time’ life changing song called ‘ I have decided to follow Jesus.’  This hymn touched me even as a little girl then.  As I grew older, this song helped to form my life values and life purpose.  While I was researching about this hymn, I came to know this known story behind it.

In my young adult years, I enjoyed reading books written by Elizabeth Elliot. It was through her books that I got introduced to her first husband, Jim Elliot. He was one of the five missionaries dead in Ecuador killed by the Auca Indians, now known as the “Waorani ” (the people). The famous quote that Jim Elliot was known for said:

[cincopa AQJAWMM4XP9Z]

” He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. “

His passion to follow Jesus led him martyred for the Gospel of Jesus. If interested to know more about the story of the five missionaries, here is the link to read further on it.

The bible says in Matthew 7:7-8 :

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Christianity is not about seeking more blessings, more of everything. But, it’s about PASSION. Who are we passionate about? As we begin 2015, we need to ask ourselves: ” What is our passion? ” If our passion is for this life alone, we will seek to live for now, for our gratifications. But, if we look into Heaven and seek what is truly eternal, then how we live in preparation now will prepare us for eternity. Once again, I’m challenged. Have I truly decided to follow Jesus? Is Jesus my life purpose, my life goal?

Thank you Jesus!





My Journey For New Moms

My Birth Experience

New moms

David And Mommy

Who would have thought that after much prayers, 4 years into our marriage, David Joshua Jun Jie Dick would be born on the morning of 29th August 2012? Earlier, we got excited David’s projected due date fell on his Aunt Joanne’s birthday which was 28th of August that year. That afternoon, I experienced some contractions and later in the evening I was Admitted into Clovis Community Hospital. While I admitted, my water broke. My contractions intensified from that point on. It was a relief to have Dan, Michelle, Andrea and my little sister, Elisa there. It was heart warming to have them cheering me on. The pain-killer had an intense effect on my body. Not only did the pain continue on, I was hallucinating. I couldn’t wait for a staff to administer epidural to relieve my pain. It took a while longer to finally get my pain relieved. I was so glad. The process of dilation did not progress as expected, and David was in distressed. So, through c-section David was born early the next morning at around 9. He weighed 9 pounds 1 oz, and 21 inches long.

My Thoughts

As a brand new mom, I did my research on the web daily. I was constantly looking for answers online especially through the first year of David’s life. Never miss his doctor’s appointments. It helped to have a group of new moms as a support group for each other. I was a proud new mom who by God’s provision, successfully breastfed my little boy through the six months of his life. Giving thanks to God always for His guidance, wisdom and protection.

Advice For New Moms

New moms are always looking for good sound advice for parenting. I welcome some advice while I ignore others. As new moms, all our experiences are valid and worthy for consolidation for future moms-to-be. What are some of your experiences that you would like to share with others that you consider helpful tips? Future moms-to-be would be glad to hear from you.
