a birthday tribute

Though buried in a poor man’s grave, we will always remember him.

He believed in beginning his life’s work from a young age.

He believed in marrying young, though that particular case never came to fruition.

He kept company with royalty, none of whom were as creative as this young man was.

He has given each of us a treasure.

He was an artist in the truest sense of the word.

He makes you smart.

He makes you happy.

He makes you sad.

For him the Turks are still marching.

And if he ever fell into the well, his brother would have a hard time telling his mom about it.

Happy 254th birthday,  Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Teophilus Mozart.

Though his Spiritual life is an interesting study, for any art form he brings to mind the first phrase in 1 Timothy 4:12

    Yes, happy birthday to a great musician. But who did he describe as ‘the father of all music-we are his children?’

    Mozart’s “eine kleine nachtmusik” is my favorite classical piece.

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
