Today Apple announced that they acquired Primephonic, the classical music streaming service. I love classical music and subscribed to Primephonic for a few years in addition to Apple Music. It was wonderful but never built a wide following which is not surprising for a niche service. I'm hoping that Apple will be a good steward and can't wait to see how they improve upon the foundation laid by Primephonic.

My Sweet 8 Year Old Wifey...

This is one of my favorite photos of my sweet wifey. This was from 1975, when she was 8 years old. Earlier this summer we celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary. I am truly blessed!

A Photo Of My Grandfather And Me From 1968

I love this photo of my grandfather and me sitting on one of his tractors. It was probably taken in the spring of 1968 but unfortunately the photograph is not dated. My grandfather was my hero and I loved him very much. He died on my birthday in 1990 β€” just a few months before my wedding. I still think of him every day and I still miss him, but I am incredibly grateful for every moment I was able to spend with him.

[13] Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. [14] As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, [15] but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, [16] since it is written, β€œYou shall be holy, for I am holy.” [17] And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, [18] knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, [19] but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. [20] He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you [21] who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

β€” 1 Peter 1:13–21, ESV

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience β€” among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ β€” by grace you have been saved β€” and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

β€” Ephesians 2:1-10, ESV
