iTunes

I owe some thanks to my buddy Dave who introduced me to iTunes. iTunes is an excellent media player created by Apple. Usually the fact that Apple made it would be more than enough to turn me off of it, but based on Dave’s recommendation I decided to give it a try. And I am glad that I did. Though it is a bit low on bells and whistles (skins would be nice, for example) it has some features that set it above other media players. My favorite is that you can rate each song in your collection on a 1 to 5 star scale. You can then create playlists that will only play songs with a certain rating. That allows you to listen to only the best of the best if you so desire. When you spend as much time in front of the PC as I do, that is a very nice feature! Another great feature is built-in Internet radio functionality with a huge selection of stations available.

It is a free program and is worth looking into.

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…
