What is a Feed Reader?

A feed reader automatically checks for updates on websites that the user chooses. The content from many different websites is gathered into one place for easy reading by the user, saving the time that the user would spend visiting all the different websites involved. Feed readers with podcasting capabilities are also able to download media files and automatically load them onto media players like iPods.

What is a Podcast?

A podcast is an audio broadcast streamed across the Internet for users to download onto their computers and portable audio devices.

Subscribing to a specific podcast "feed" enables a user to automatically update their computer with the latest edition of a particular audio broadcast, known as a podcast "channel."

The word podcast combines the words "iPod" (Apple's popular portable MP3 device) and "broadcast" to describe the ability for anybody — from independent producers to large media corporations — to create audio broadcasts to share online.

    Great insights Rod.


    Amen Rod!
    Blessings.


    Thank You!! You have developed and expressed this subject so well. Having lost an adult daughter, I know the pain.


    Yes Rod, death is always difficult for those left behind. Thanks for sharing this devotional with us. Blessings.


    Dear Rod – thank you for today’s devotional. I am still struggling to get past the being angry and asking God “why”. Your words and scripture passages are a help. May God bless you.


    Good message Rod. There’s so much we don’t understand but we can always gain strength and comfort from the Scriptures. I sometimes think of Isa. 57:1 to help make sense of a premature death.


    Dear Rod Marshall,
    Thank you for your insightful message.
    God bless you.


    Dear brother Rod,
    Thank you for sharing what God revealed to you, and your own thoughts, on this painful subject. May many be blessed in the reading and sharing of this devotional.
    Blessings,

    We have several children and grandchildren. One of our children is a twin. He was five pounds when born. Our other baby boy was a healthy six pounds. It was a difficult delivery and he did not live.
    That was many years ago. And still, I found your words and the scripture you presented a comfort this morning. Thank you.

    Thank you Rod for the reminder “that who are we to question God”. Yes, I have been guilty of this many times, in circumstances about others, but in particular to my situation where I continue to be plagued by audible voices 24/7. I have shouted out “Why Lord Why?” in the midst of spiritual attacks. No answer, but I rest assured that one day there will be an answer. In the meantime I cling to my faith. Blessings.


    Dear Rod!
    Sad to hear of the great loss of your infant grandson.
    All that was permitted will in time bless and relax the sorrow!
    God carries you all through this difficult time!
    In the mirror of your eyes you see the little one has taken his place in heaven.
    With deep sympathy and Christian love!


    Rod:
    Thank you for this. Our natural reaction is always to ask why?. Thank you for sharing the text from Matthew, I had never thought about it like that, and you are so right. Another text for those who are able to minister to those left behind is James 1:2-3 as well as the rest of the chapter.
    Blessings,

    Hi Pastor Rod,
    I always benefit from the insights and encouragements in your daily’s.
    Thank you for all of them.
    Today’s, regarding the death of an infant, is very timely as my wife and I are planning to attend a memorial tomorrow. The baby’s grandparents are long-time friends of ours at church, and we can’t conceive of NOT standing with them at this tough time — but we also are unsure what is best to say to them. The opportunity for more caring is available in the days ahead, not just for them but also for their family that includes persons not resting on God’s words.
    As I consider your insights and tomorrow’s challenge/opportunity (today you suggested we ask “Where are You in this? What can I do about it? What can I learn? How does this inform me about Your purposes?”) I am reminded again of the challenge of God’s view vs ours.
    Thanks again.

    I understand about the twins as over 60 years ago we had twins, they were identical in the same sack. One lived about 10 min but likely would have been mentally challenged. How hard it would have been for that child to live and know she was not as smart as her sister and the other way as well.
    BUT I hope that surviving twin as that child grows gets counselling.
    We were very young and I am not sure the doctors understood until she was 5 that she had almost a nervous breakdown. We were told she would always have some emotional problems as the two babies living is such close area whether identical or not when they do not have their twin will feel something missing.
    If you can support those parents and child or at least to get advise on what they should be aware of and talk about the twin who did not make it I think that helps.
    Enjoy your writings.

    Thank you, Rod – and God bless you and your family, and the precious life of the one remaining for you all.
