Happy Sunday, everyone! Please join me for a cup of tea and chat for awhile, then click the beautiful sky to the right to visit our lovely hostesses, Charlotte and Ginger, for Spiritual Sundays.
I would like to share a page from God's Little Devotional Book.
"A series of illustrations in a popular magazine once depicted the life story of a "one-note" musician." From frame to frame, the tale revealed how the women followed her daily routine of eating and sleeping until the time came for the evening concert. She carefully inspected her music on the stand, and tuned her instrument. As the concert began, the conductor skillfully cued first one group of musicians and then another until finally, the crucial moment arrived. It was time for the one note to be played!
The conductor turned to the violinist and signaled her to sound her note. She did, and then the moment was over. The orchestra played on and the "one-note" woman sat quietly through the rest of the concert - not with a sense of disappointment that she had played only one note, but with a sense of contentment and peace of mind that she had played her one note in tune, on time, and wtih great gusto.
Sometimes, "one-note" people are criticized for being limited or narrow in their perspective by those whose lifestyle requires the wearing of many "hats". But a job well done by others is valued by God, so it certainly deserves our recognitition and respect."
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might. Ecclesiastes 9:10 NIV
Did this speak to you about someone you know...yourself, perhaps? I've been on both ends of this story...thinking I wasn't doing enough, thinking I was doing too much, and just wanting one note to play. Either way, what matters is that whether I play a note or a one woman symphony, that it would be only as God has called me to do...no more, no less, and nothing on my own.
Have a wonderful Sunday, all of you, and may god bless you. Please remember to pray for our troops, for our military, for our president and for our great nation. Remember Debbie and her family as they grieve for their beloved Amy Dawn.
