Digital Goldfish Readers


I'm working on dieting my words in this blog. Today I read the following: "An article on the BBC's Web site warns we're all "turning into digital goldfish." Internet users now have the attention span of only nine seconds. The article quotes an American Web surfer admitting, "When I'm on the Internet, my attention span is shorter for each thing because there are so many things to choose from." Another has labeled this syndrome as "Internet ADD" (Attention Deficit Disorder)." http://watkins.gospelcom.net/writingonline.htm

So, to all my "digital goldfish" buddies, I'll lighten up on the verbage. I only have seconds before you "swim" away, so I will close for today. Posts will be shorter from now on because I am getting smarter for the rest of our journey together. Thrive!!!

Dear Kay,
Thank you for leaving your encouraging comment on my blog! It means alot to me, and it has brought laughters of joy to my wife and I. (:

I am glad you find my post on sermon podcasts useful! There're many good Christian podcasts out there, my current favorites are RC Sproul's (http://www.ligioner.org) and John Piper (http://www.desiringgod.org). I'm sure you'll find many more in iTunes Store.

I'm also encouraged by what you blogged--keep it up! I hope we can keep in touch and occasionally drop by one another's blogs regularly. One way is to add me in your blogroll!

Thank you for what you're doing for the Lord =)

Thrive In Christ

Who I Am In Christ by Neil Anderson

For several months we will center on this book to pursue Thriving in our Christian journey.

Neil challenges us with: "Do you know who you are in God's eyes? We are no longer products of our past. We are primarily products of Christ's work on the cross. Who we are determines what we do.

You are not who you are in Christ because of the things you have done, you are in Christ because of what He has done. He died and rose again so that you and I could live in the FREEDOM of His love."

That's just the introduction. More to follow.
