December is a stressing month

Didn’t you remark that december is a month full of activities. When Chrismas is approaching, that remember that we MUST celebrate Chrismas. Society tells us that we must buy gifts and more. We must decorate and make christmas tree. December is a busy month too in many companies. For shops that is THE month of the year. Yes December is a month of consumption

Then this social pressure of Christmas could become stressing

Poverty

Some people have financial difficulties or have not enough monney. We can call them poor people. They are frustrated because they cannot buy what they want.

Ecology

If you have ecology fiber, you cannnot buy and consum but you want to protect environment. You just want to buy only what you need and not more.  If you have a device, you don’t need to replace it with the new one if it still works well. We must save energy and life only with the minimum.

Lonelyness

If you are lonely or if you have crisis in your family, Christmas could be a hard time because we MUST be with our family and we MUST be happy. This month remind us our lonelyness.

 

If you are poor, ecologist or lonely, december month is a hard month.

Maybe christians could feel better in this special season. Maybe not because Christmas is not a biblical celebration.  And today Jesus is not at the center of Christmas as it could be.Jesus born is only a story a myth.

So what can we do during this period ? Maybe walking in the snow far away from shopping center and put our stress away.

Even if you don’t like Christmas : Merry Christmas

God Help Me – PLUMB

God Help Me

I just discover this new singers PLUMB. Actually she is much more known in the secular world than in the christian music world. I like the sound and the melody. The first thing I should like in a song is the music what I hear. I even surprise me to wake up during a night with a music in my head. What is this music ? What is this melody ? When did I hear such music ? After a while I realise that is was this song.

I also like the words of this song. Very deap and touching. I could sing this song myself. What will you ask for me. It is not always as easy to know what we should do and to listen to the voice of God.

There is a wrestling in my heart and my mind
A disturbance and a tension I cannot seem to drive
And if I’m honest, there’s quite a bit of fear
To sit here in this silence and really hear You

What will You ask of me?
Will I listen to Your voice when You speak?

Help me to move, help me to see
Help me to do whatever You would ask of me
Help me to go, God help me to stay
I’m feeling so alone here
And I know that You’re faithful
But I can barely breathe
God help me

Sometimes things, they are black and white
Sometimes they are not and that leaves us torn inside
And in the middle, we are left to wonder
Who we are, what You want and where we’re going

Oh such a mystery
I don’t always understand
But I believe!

I don’t know the future, it’s one day at a time
But I know I’ll be okay with Your hand holding mine
So take all my resistance
Oh God I need Your grace
One step and then the other
Show me the way
Show me the way!

Help me to move, help me to see
Help me to do whatever You would ask of me
Help me to go, God help me to stay
I’m feeling so alone here
And I know that You’re faithful
But I can barely breathe
But I can barely breathe
But I can barely breathe
God help me

Nick Vujici in Ukraine

Nick Vujicic, the remarkable evangelist born with no arms and no legs, was part of a massive outreach in Ukraine in which 400,000 surrendered to Christ as their Lord and Savior.

“The biggest event that our team at Life Without Limbs has seen and maybe the largest event ever in Europe – 800,000 people in the streets of Kiev Ukraine!” Nick reported on Facebook Oct. 17th.

Vujicic, 33, was born without arms or legs and was given no medical reason for his condition. On the ministry’s website, he explains, “It’s been said that doors open to a man without arms and legs much more easily than to anyone else, we thank God for providing that privilege. I’ve been invited into very unexpected places to share about my faith in Jesus Christ and literally millions have responded.”

Hubzilla my experience

Hubzilla is a powerful platform for creating interconnected websites featuring a decentralized identity, communications, and permissions framework built using common webserver technology. It could be an alternative as facebook, twitter or other services taken by big companies.

Finding a hub

That is not as easy. You have many hubs but many are outdated or don’t accept open registration

What the hub can do ?

As soon you find a hub where you can registrare an account you discover what the hub can do and what the hub cannot do. But the list of feature (activated plugin and feature) is not listed in a human reading. Exemple is the ostatus plugin activated or not. I cannot activated why ? Haaa that hub does not allow it. —> grrr I have to find an other hub and start at the begining.

Social ?

Hubzilla is a powerfull tool but it is a social tool. You expect communities or at least a community. But untill now the community is only hubzilla community. Where are people ? The community is small and not growing…. That dimension is missing. Hubzilla is only a tool not a community.

New users are not comfortable

I just notice that new user don’t stay. They try, open an account a channel and don’t use it. Why ? That would be interesting to try to answer that question. We could respond. Hubzilla is powerfull, it is a revolutionary tools, you are anomyme and privacy is really in the core etc. etc.. but the fast is new user are not able to dive into it and use it for a real use.

 Slow

My user experience in hubzilla is that it is often slow. I am waiting often after clicking somewhere.

Double configuration

Often the admin should activate or parameter a plugin and the member should do the same. We need double configuration. If either the member or the admin don’t do it. It will not work. Even admin is not able to configurate plugin for member. That level of complexity is something like a weekness of course we also can see that like a strongness.

Simplicity should be the target.

How to make something complicated simple ? I hope the level of simplicity sill be the target for hubzilla.

 

Hubzilla is changing quicky and improvements are frequent. That is my hope. I am sure improvement will lead into the right direction. (simplicity)
