The Passing of Steve Jobs

As the “All Things Apple” contributor here, this post should have come MUCH sooner, and I apologize for my late posting. It is well known now that Apple has lost its dear visionary, cofounder, and former CEO, Steve Jobs, last week, losing a battle to cancer. He will be truly missed by all of us loyal Apple customers who’ve enjoyed his vivid keynote presentations, his sense of design and vision, and the way he led Apple to become one of the most successful tech companies today. Apple is in excellent hands with Tim Cook and the rest of the Apple executive team no doubt, but that spark Steve Jobs brought to Apple is just missing, and who knows when, and if, that’ll ever return.

My ultimate prayer is that Steve came to know the Lord before his passing, as when it all boils down to our final breath and final beat of the heart, isn’t that the one and only thing that truly matters? My thoughts and prayers also go out to the Jobs family and the employees at Apple, as I know they are truly missing Steve and are grieved by his loss. The world has lost a true visionary, one that fully knew how to revolutionize technology by making it simple, “for the rest of us”.
