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.

    Beautiful. Thanks.


    Well done, a good message.


    Good reminder Karen. Thanks for sharing.


    Thank you for modeling an alternate form of discipline for us in this devotional. Blessings.


    Thank you Karen.
    God Bless.


    Thanks for a good word this morning Karen, well done.
    Blessings and prayers.


    A good reminder for all parents and grandparents .
    God bless.


    Thank you for your good reminder of how much more forgiveness teaches than punishment. That boy will remember you and Christ’s love the rest of his life.


    Dear Karen
    Thank you for sharing your story of the clock with us. You have shown God’s forgiveness to that little boy so nicely. God bless you.


    Dear Karen:
    Thank you for your beautiful words of wisdom. Thank you also for serving the Lord so well.
    God bless you always.


    Karen,
    Your reflection should be mandatory reading for all parents, aunts and uncles!
    Blessings

    Thank you Karen for this beautiful story. What a gift you gave him of being forgiven with love but also reminded that his actions have consequences. He is truly blessed to have you as a neighbor and also to you for having him in your life.
    God bless you at this Easter time,
    (Ottawa, Canada)


    How beautiful! This is hard to believe, but just reading about your reaction has given me a sense of forgiveness for things I did as a child; things I have felt guilt for all my life! You have brought beautiful healing to me just by sharing your story – and from the other side of the world!!! I am so amazed, and so grateful. Blessings on your day.


    Thank you, Karen, for sharing a beautiful example of how, with love and kindness, a broken clock (or other such calamity) can become a beautiful teachable moment. Too often we tend to be reactionary, and you have shown us that, to take time for prayer in the midst of what could be chaos, can allow God to calm our hearts and equip us to follow Christ’s example.
    It takes a village to raise a child, and God has placed this young boy close to you, and others, that he may learn and grow in God’s amazing love. Thank you again, for allowing God to work in you and through you. May He continue to bless you to make a beautiful difference in the lives of those in your community and beyond.
    Blessings,
    (ON Canada)


    Dear Karen,
    This is a very helpful message. I am a retired teacher and often wondered how to keep order in a classroom without being too demanding and giving a military impression to the situation. I often heard other teachers discussing in the staffroom how to make necessary discipline creative and positive so that every child would retain dignity and be given help to behave in a way that made the learning environment a safe, pleasant and productive place to be for all the students. We all knew that disruptive behaviour could not be ignored, but how could it be turned into a positive experience? Sometimes we would joke about needing to take “mean pills.” Your suggestions are a much better strategy. The teachings of Jesus and his demonstrations of how to be loving and caring in a way that encourages others to also be loving and caring give us understanding of how to relate to those around us.
    Thanks for this thought-provoking message and the interesting and personal context.


    Thank you so much, Karen, for giving us an example of a good kind of discipline that faces wrong squarely, fixes the damage, and shows forgiveness and love.
    Keep writing. God bless you.

    Forgiveness doesn’t erase our bitter past, it does enlarge our future. Forgiving others is the force we all need to arm ourselves with. Hope you had a very blessed Easter, Karen.


    Thank you Karen for sharing this very precious incident. Such treatment of love are indeed remembered for many years by little children.
