"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

Music and Memory #3

I just got myself a cheap little mp3 player. I have had a desire to get out and walk in the mornings and having some music to accompany me would help motivate me to walk more. I gathered a number of favorites from my computer and downloaded them to my new player.

Among the songs I added to my player were a few Josh Groban Christmas songs. Now if you have never heard him sing a carol or two you are definitely missing something. I could listen to them year round. In fact, when his Christmas CD came out last fall, I quickly got a copy for myself and began listening to it OVER and OVER...it was still only November.

About the time that I got this CD a good friend sent me a book...a very good, very difficult, very heart wrenching book, in the hopes that I would read it and enjoy it as he had.

Well, as it happened, I found myself reading that book, Give Us This Day, while listening to this new Christmas CD.

Fast forward to today. I am listening to the tunes I have just downloaded to my new mp3 player. As The First Noel and Angels we Have Heard on High by Josh Groban start out I am suddenly thinking of that book I read last fall. Many of the same feelings I had as I read that book come flooding back to my mind and heart.

It is a good thing.

I've been stubbornly using a casette Walkman until last year.

I finally got an iPod (on iPhone) last summer and IT CHANGED Y MUSICAL LIFE.

By light years.

I have close to 2000 songs-- with digitized, crystal-clear sound--in the palm of my hand. No rewinding, forwarding, casette flipping/changing...

John, for last Christmas my dear other half bought me an ipod. I had a similar revelation, and figured out how to play the Ipod through my truck's tape player. That quickly led to me purchasing new speakers for the truck. I would likely never have bought one for myself, but once I had one I do not want to go back....

as to the ipod thing...I still don't have one of those....

The digital age has certainly changed a lot of things. I recently, got a copy via email of my great grandma reciting a version of the 23rd Psalm. She died when I was 9. One of my relatives had taken the time to port it from cassette to mp3. It was a blessing to hear her voice again through my computer.

Like James said, once you go iPod, you never go back.
