The Shiny New Red Accordion

The Shiny New Red Accordion

Life takes us on many twists and turns.  We don’t always see how it all fits together until years later.  We often times don’t recognize the blessings in our lives because we don’t get what we think we want.

As a young boy, my husband wanted a piano.  His big brother played piano and he wanted to play too.  It seemed the music was already in his head.  He just needed the piano so other people could hear it.  His father had stored an old piano in the barn.  He had cut the strings out to use for other things, so the old piano did not make any sound.  Johnny didn’t seem to care.  He still tried to play it, all the while dreaming of a new piano.

He was so disappointed to get a red accordion instead of a new piano.  The story chronicles the transformation the little red accordion made in his life.  It is a delightful journey of a young boy, through obedience to his parents, finds God’s plan for his life.

The illustrations are acrylic on canvas.  The pictures are black and white with the emphasis of red on the accordion.  You will enjoy the story and may even find some hidden blessings in your life you never saw before.
