The Concert




When the house lights dimmed and the concert


was about to begin, the mother returned to


her seat and discovered that the child was missing

Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights


focused on the impressive Steinway on stage.


In horror, the mother saw her little

boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out


"Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star."


At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and


whispered in the boy's ear,


"Don't quit.""Keep playing."


Then, leaning over, Paderewski reached


down with his left hand and began filling


in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached


around to the other side of the child,


and he added a running obbligato.


Together, the old master and the young novice


transformed what could have been a frightening situation into a wonderfully creative experience.


The audience was so mesmerized that they couldn't recall what else the great master played.


Only the classic,


" Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."


Perhaps that's the way it is with God.


What we can accomplish on

our own is hardly noteworthy.


We try our best, but the results aren't always


graceful flowing music. However, with the


hand of the Master, our life's


work can truly be beautiful.


The next time you set out to accomplish great feats,


listen carefully. You may hear the voice of the


Master, whispering in your ear,

"Don't quit." "Keep playing."


May you feel His arms around you and


know that His hands are there, helping you


turn your feeble attempts into true masterpieces.


Remember, God doesn't seem to


call the equipped, rather, He equips the 'called.'

Life is more accurately measured by the lives you touch than by the things you acquire. So touch someone by passing this little message along.

May God bless you and be with you always!






remember ,



"Don't quit."


"Keep playing.",
