i for got my how to play the piano
i am so sorry
I smiled as I read it and then invited her down to spend an hour at my house. I told her we'd review "piano" and she could spend some time arranging the doll houses that share the room with the piano. (I suspected this news would make her very happy since I know she likes the doll houses waaaaay more than piano lessons.)
She arrived at the appointed time with her little sister. She played the piano a bit, then I set the timer for 10 minutes so she could arrange the doll house. Then it was back to piano for a spell. And so we passed the hour.
Reflecting on the precious note she sent me that got the "ball rolling", I thought about how many times I've said (in effect) to the Lord, "I for got my how to play the piano i am so sorry". My words may be awkward, but they get the ball rolling! The Lord reads between the lines and knows my heart. He invites me to spend some time with Him. Knowing my limitations, He welcomes me and offers forgiveness, quiet waters, pleasures, and refreshment. He gently reminds me of His Word and gives me new insight and instruction about Life and Godliness.
He IS faithful and just to forgive my sin.
He cleanses me from all unrighteousness.
He DOES restore my soul.
He sets my feet on solid ground.
At the end of the hour, I told the girls I would take a picture of the rooms they'd arranged and then they'd better get home so their mother didn't worry about them. To this, my piano student replied, "Oh, she doesn't worry about us as long as she knows we're with YOU!"Smile.
