With God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26b
Once upon a time there was a family of mice living inside a piano. Life was good, quiet, and ordinary, they had everything they needed. Then one day their whole world was filled with music. "Isn't that beautiful?" said Father mouse. Mother mouse agreed and asked, "What can make something so amazing?"
The daughter mouse declared it was the wires as they vibrated inside the piano that made the beautiful music.
The brother mouse said, "No it's not the wires that make the music, it's the piano hammers when they dance on the wires that make the music."
Then Father mouse decided to explore the inside of the piano. Then he announced, "it wasn't the wires or the piano hammers that made the music." "It was the woman that lived in the house, as her hands press the black and white keys."
That evening as the mouse family was enjoying the beautiful piano music. Sister mouse asked, "if the woman makes the piano hammers go and the piano hammers make the wires go, I wonder what makes the woman go?"
"God does!" said Mother mouse. "God moves the woman to use her gifts, her ability, and her knowledge of the piano to fill the world with beautiful music."
"You're right!" said the others. "Let's thank God for how He has blessed us with all the beautiful people to make beautiful music!"
