Music can enrich one's life and bring a measure of joy and contentment. It can uplift us emotionally and spiritually. So if you are gifted like James, with the ability to entertain others, may you use it to the honor of our Grand Creator, the Giver of “every good gift and every perfect present.”—James 1:17.
Many will miss James.
