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.

    Thanks for your wisdom and insightfulness.


    Look what God has done in you in spite of your circumstances.


    Oh, my, Rose, only God could have made you into who you are today.


    Wow! That’s quite a background to come to terms with! Makes mine look like a picnic!! Thanks Rose.


    Wonderful! Your unique background has produced fruit in a way that is unimaginable! Bless you for this,
    (BC)


    Rose: you continue to prove that your memoirs would be a gift to our troubled world. Today you forcibly reminded me of the role difficult folk play in my faith journey.


    Thank you for this heart-breaking life experience. I prayed to the Lord last evening for help in a project I am undertaking. You have answered prayer. God Bless You.


    Thank you, Rose. Your words in today’s devotional were just what I needed. You are a blessing to me, and others.
    May God Bless you.


    Dear Rose:
    I am so happy that God is with you! Wow! Thank you for sharing your story. May God continue to bless you and keep you safe.


    I was just praying about the Lord helping me to be more patient and loving and then I read your devotion, which truly hit home.
    Thank you.


    Rose, may our Saviour’s love continue to heal your heart and deliver your family from Satan’s grasp. May your life be blessed and peaceful. Thanks for sharing your heart with us. Blessings.


    Hi Rose,
    I can’t imagine what all you went through. So good to see how you are and the faith you have.
    Blessings.


    Dear Rose,
    Thank you for the devotional today. Isn’t it amazing how what need is what we receive?
    Blessings.


    Thank you Rose for your devotional today. I am struggling with difficult people at work and your words reminded me of the higher purpose and of God’s eternal faithfulness and love. Thank you. Blessing on your journey.


    Greetings in the name of Jesus,
    Thank you very much for the message. I thank God that, despite what you went through growing up, God was there to console, protect and guide you in life to what you are today.
    Glory be to Almighty God.


    Dear Rose,
    Thank you for your many devotionals from the heart and from your learning. I am glad that God was there for you and you didn’t become bitter because of your circumstances. It is always good to hear other people’s stories and to learn from them. Thank you for sharing. May many blessings continue to come your way.


    Dear Rose,
    Thank you for contributing this devotional. My sympathy to you after reading about the family difficulties you endured while growing up. Yes, it is a mystery at times trying to figure out God’s long-term plan when we face certain difficulties, but we must remain faithful and trusting that His plan works best in the end.
    Blessings to you as you go forward with such a kind and understanding heart after problems you have dealt with in life.
    (B.C.)


    Dear Rose,
    Thank you for sharing these intensely personal and painful accounts of your family experience. You have opened the door of understanding those people who enter our lives that are difficult to deal with because the behavior is not part of our own experience. God has drawn you closer to Him through the relationships, as he does each one of us. As you so deftly pointed out, relationships are best lived by application of God’s guidelines. Praise His name.


    Rose I cannot even imagine the terror and sadness that you must have experienced as a child in such unstable conditions. We have all had bad experiences in our lives that have scarred us, and it is a testament of God’s love that we can and do use these shaky stepping-stones to help others as you have and do. Some families appear to go through life without any problems but that is only because we are not aware of their specific traumas. If only people hurting would turn to God rather than drugs or alcohol!
    Thank you for an excellent devotional.


    Good morning Rose. I can almost always recognize your devotionals without even looking at your name below. You have a distinct style of writing that peaks my attention.
    Over the past several months I have had several disagreeable people ignite my fuse and each time I was getting a stronger need to win. Recently I had harsh words with my daughter and regret it terribly. My daughter said to me ‘some Christian you are”. That cut deep, but she was right. I handled that so badly.
    I believe God allowed that to happen so I could see how my words can hurt. It took doing it to my daughter for me to realize, I should not be speaking to anyone this way. My daughter has forgiven me, and things are good. It took a rip-roaring fight with my daughter for me to realize, I cannot do this to anyone.
    Your devotional today certainly was a great reminder. I am printing this one and keeping it on my desk.
    God’s blessings upon you Rose for sharing.


    That you have emerged as capable, stable, caring person is indeed a sign of God’s grace active in your life.
    Bless you.


    Hi Rose, God bless you! I admire people who do well in life and in their relationship with God; but particularly admire people who rises about their circumstances to do so.
    Blessings.


    Dear Rose,
    I found this devotional exceptionally helpful and encouraging.
    I grew up in an alcoholic, dysfunctional household. My mother was a mentally ill alcoholic, due to abuse. She would never admit that anything was wrong. My father was an alcoholic, who thought that money for booze was more important than anything, including food for his family or medicine for a sick child.
    Why do I find you sharing so wonderful? If you can survive that and be the wonderful Christian you are… then I truly have HOPE.
    Every blessing in the Lord!


    Oh Rose, what a precious, fearless woman of Christ you are! You’re not alone in the dysfunctional family stakes. Thank you for this honest insight.
    Blessings.


    Dear Rose De Shaw.
    Thank you for your whole devotional, and especially for your prayer.
    Keep writing.
