Lord have mercy on the soul of Steve Jobs.
Surely his creativity and industriousness made you smile, Lord. How he changed technology. How he combined artistic flair and technology. How he reached out in his products to people like me, intimidated by technology yet wanting to use it.
I love my Macbook Pro. I love the Apple products. I love how attractive they all are. I love how easy they are to use. Example? I love how when I start to type in an email address the rest of the address pops up, if I've entered it before. That way I know I have the address remembered correctly. I don't have to look it up. I could give so many more examples. Because of Steve Jobs, I do not regularly face the temptation (as I used to) of throwing my computer out the window.
I don't know anything about his personal life except that he leaves behind a wife and four children. May they be consoled.
Oh Lord, his work blessed so many people. I pray that you will bring him home.
Lord, please rest his soul. Have mercy on him.
