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, Martin. Praise God for His fences!

    Amen Martin. Thanks for sharing.
    God’s blessings all the way.

    Just right, Martin! Really enjoyed the memories this brings up. I think it has inspired another for me. Blessings.

    Your devotional about being hemmed in is excellent. It was a surprise for me. I appreciated your detail about keeping each animal safe in its own way.

    Very well said, Martin, and since we live on a ranch in a rural county of Texas, the illustrations were understood readily.
    Thank you.

    Dear Martin: Your message was an inspiration for both my wife and I. We grew up on farms. Your story brought back many wonderful memories. Thanks so much.

    Life is full of restrictions some good others not.
    We can count on God to lead us out of the restrictions that are not of Him and know the wisdom of those he has put in place. We just need to ask.

    Hi Martin
    My Dad always said (who was a farmer) “Good fences create good neighbours ” since no neighbour appreciates cows or other creatures wandering through a crop ready for harvest.

    “Hemmed In
    Psalm 139:5 – You hem me in — behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. (NIV)
    The fence was there for a purpose — not just for looks.”
    Appreciate the paradoxical sentiment that the psalmist “enjoyed being hemmed in.” One could mediate on this devotional … for a lifetime.

    Hi, Martin
    Another good devotional. Thanks for sharing.
    I noticed that you live in Greenwood, SC. My mother-in-law lived there for many years. It is a small world.
    Keep on keeping on.

    Martin, Thanks for this insightful devotional. Your endeavors to protect your small animal flock remind me of my efforts to protect my canine companion, a young one who would race into the road or run pell-mell into the bush after a rabbit and get lost. Thus she’s micro chipped and is leashed when we’re outside for her own good. Blessings.

    Dear Martin,
    Your story of the knowledge you gained from your grandparents and the reason for the fences was a good way of exampling the Bible verse. Understanding the reasons for something helps us to be positive and grateful for why God has designed it. We won’t always understand God’s ways for our lives, but little clues helps us to obey and to thank God even when times are difficult. Thank you for always sharing honestly and from your heart.
