New Beginnings

Look what I found today!

When I see tender new sprouts poking up through the soil of my flower beds my first musing is of new beginnings. A new opportunity to see God's handiwork. That leads me to the thought of Easter and the benefits of the Cross. It was there of the Cross that God provided mankind the opportunity to have a new beginning by the redeeming blood of Christ Jesus. Old things have passed away and all things are made new. Christ removes the old dry deadness that was once in our lives and brings beauty in it's place. The Cross is the "sprout" that graces our life and as we walk with the Saviour daily we grow and develop then show others the Handiwork of God with our example. Soon flowers will take the place of those tiny sprouts and a fragrance will fill the air. May each of our lives be a sweet smelling fragrance that pleases our Heavenly Father and blesses our world. Jesus thank you for the reminder each Spring of the New Beginnings which You offer "whosoever will" accept the Gift of Salvation. May we each bloom for your Honor and Glory. Amen

The Concert
When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her child was missing. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage.To her 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! And Remember ,……" Don 't quit . . . Keep playing."
