This is a word I use in school quite a bit now with the children. It is fun trying to get them to figure out what a word like this means. They come up with some very interesting ideas. One child (second grade) said it is something that happens over and over again. which could be true in a way if "multi" was multiply which was the first thing they thought. I asked what media was and the first thing they think is size, like a medium shirt. Of course the word has to do with there being multiple forms of communication in one presentation or project. It has to include 2 or more of the following types of media in one project, animation, sound, text, graphics, and interactivity.

I think that God is a Multimedia type God. He talks to us in many ways. He speaks through His Spirit, through His Word. He can even speaks through people and music. He also speaks through His creation, and the beauty of it all. The trick is listening, watching. acknowledging, believing, and doing or changing something because of what he has presented. He will not blast us with overwhelming bombardments of noise and images. His ways are meek and glorious. That is not to say that a storm wouldn't be a message from God, it could be, and yes it may be loud and overbearing but it is also glorious when viewed in the right way! I need to start seeing God more in all that is around me!

The Quote:
"Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice."  ~I Kings 19:11-12

  1. Beautiful, you know Vanessa, I wish I had a teacher like you when I was in school. I can tell that you encourage your students to be the best that they can be, and to listen to God as HE does speak to us in many many different ways. You are a blessing! Have a wonderful day. I hope to post my drawing to my blog later today...take care.
