And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. (Rom 5:3-6)
Let not those who hope in you be put to shame through me, O Lord GOD of hosts; let not those who seek you be brought to dishonor through me, O God of Israel. (Psalm 69:6)

What is on My iPod
At Christmas I wound up with an Ipod touch. I say wound up with it as its arrival came by a variety of means converging at the right moment. So it is now about six months into the mainstream of my daily routine, and I must say I welcome the technology.
I am usually found about once a week downloading new apps for testing and use. Often I only get the free ones. Most become bore some to me after a while, some only last minutes. Others though have proven to be worth the money I have invested. So without further rambling, Here is a list of what you may find on my iPod.
Mobicip, this browser has replaced Safari for me, and my kids. It is an internet filter that you can customize and require a report sent covering all its use. I highly recommend it for personal integrity.
ESV Bible- Wow the ESV and its free. It also has the functionality to add personal notes. This is a real must have.
RTS Seminary- I have been using this app to learn the Westminster Shorter catechism. Great app.
Accuweather- Ever since The Weather Chanel fired some of my favorite hosts it seems their quality has gone done. (I still like Jim Cantore and Mike Sidel) Their app shows it too. But Accuweather has a great app. I love how it gives me the hourly, radar, and 15 day forecast. Even better is how they incorporate "real feel" in thier reporting.
Facebook- It is a must have.
Onplace.com- I enjoy being able to quickly access some of the better preachers, John MacArthur and Alistair Begg.
GF Card- this card is a winner. I have Celiac Disease. This card explains my condition to servers at restaurants with ease, all in about 40+ languages.
For Games I really enjoy...
Unblock Me- It causes me to think. The relax mode is unwinding.
For Relaxing I enjoy Sleep Machine and Ambiance. For differing reasons I can can choose which app of sounds to sleep to. I paid for the full versions and do not regret it.
Personally I get a lot of use out of Desiring God, Renewing YOur Mind, and The White Horse Inn.
I hope to periodically come back and update this entry. AS I learn more I discover more and more useful nuances for my Ipod. I would welcome any that you wish to share.
