The Concert

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
May God bless you and be with you always!

Remember ,

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

Wow Brian!

I have this on a cassette tape from a few years ago.  I wish I could find it on line to share.  It is powerful to hear the narrated concert.  The words are just as powerful.  Thank you for sharing this.  Always a good message, Keep playing and never quit.  If I find the musical, I'll post it here.
