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.

    This is a lovely devotional Mary. Thanks for sharing!


    I enjoyed your thoughts.
    (B.C.)


    Good word Mary.
    Blessings.


    Thanks for remembering those that Christmas only brings sad memories.
    Merry Christmas.


    As Christmas approaches, may you feel Christ’s hugs. Thanks for sharing this touching devotional with us. Blessings.


    Thank You, Mary. Your message today will surely be a blessing to many this Christmas. I prayed your prayer for a dear friend of mine who lost her husband to cancer this past summer. Blessings to you and those you love.


    Mary
    So good to see you on board – with words that reach out to us all, especially as we come to a time of celebration. Even if we are deep in sorrow we know God is with us to lift us up, in time!


    This beautiful reflection brought tears to my eyes and thoughts of my own mother.
    I am blessed in many, many ways and for many years I spent Christmas with as wonderful, dear friend. I do not have much family and this took the place of all that.


    Loved your devotion this morning Mary! You are so “right on”!
    Blessings to you and may you continue to show God’s love to others in your writing and actions. Merry Christmas!
    (Ont)


    Good Sunday morning Mary! Thank you for your devotional this morning especially this paragraph, “Every passing is unique in its own circumstances and unique to each person affected by it. All persons, especially those who are young, have to be allowed to grieve their loss and be given all the time that they need to work their way through it, with the hope that they will reach a time when they can once again enjoy celebrations, especially the celebration of Christ’s birthday” and your closing Prayer.
    Thank you!


    Greetings Mary,
    Thanks kindly for this morning’s devotional. How difficult it must have been for you having your Mom pass away at Christmas. My Mom passed away when I was 13 yrs old and I still remember so well that first Christmas without her as she too, loved that special time of year, doing loads of baking and gift giving for us and for others. We truly can honour our Lord by being especially aware of what others may be going thru and reach out to them with caring thoughts and hearts.
    Blessings and peace to you,
    (B.C.)


    Very appropriate words, Mary. Have a Merry Christmas.


    Mary – Thank you for this heartfelt devotional.
    It is so good to have heard from you.
    May God’s blessings be upon you.


    Thank you for your wise words. I lost my only sister this year and the “season” has had its challenges already. Dec 25 is my husband’s birthday so our day will focus on birth and life and love. But the empty chair casts a big shadow. Keep up the good writing.


    Dear Mary,
    What a touching devotional and beautiful tribute to your mom.
    Christmas blessings to you and yours.


    Dear Mary:
    Thank you.
    Your meditations are among the best!
    Merry Christmas
