Angela Hewitt is considered one of the world’s leading classical pianists. All her European recordings over the last seventeen years were performed on her Fazioli F278 concert grand piano, the only one in the world with four pedals. The instrument was kept at her home in Italy and valued at over $200,000.
Two weeks ago, movers came to her recording studio to tell
her they had “dropped” it.
“The iron frame is broken, as well as much else in the
structure and action (not to mention the lid and other parts of the
case),” she wrote on Facebook. “It’s kaput.”
Hewitt is now dealing with her insurance and hopes to travel
in the next few months to Sacile, Italy, where Faziolis are made, to pick a new
one. But it won’t replace what she lost. “I adored this piano,” she
wrote. “It was my best friend, best companion. I loved how it felt when I
was recording—giving me the possibility to do anything I wanted.”
“Now it is no longer.”
Two ways to change the world
Angela Hewitt’s now-ruined piano was so valuable for two
reasons: how unique it was and how it made her feel to play it.
Our value to others is based on the same two factors.
God made you like no other human being. Not just with your
DNA and fingerprints, but with your gifts and abilities. Your education and
experiences, your challenges and limitations, your successes and failures have
all blended into the uniqueness that is you.
As a result, you can serve God and
others in a way no one else can. When you try to be what you’re not, you keep
us from experiencing what you are. Like a jigsaw puzzle, your piece fills a gap
no one else can. You’re a piano like no other.
Your uniqueness as yourself leads
to the uniqueness of your impact on others. You make them feel what no one else
can make them feel, enabling them to be and do what they could not otherwise be

Scripture who most influenced the world. Could…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
