Planet 316 REVIEW

The past month we have had the privilege to play and review the Daily Bible Jigsaw app by Planet 316.  The app is available on four different platforms that include Google Play (for Android devices), Apple App Store (iOS devices), Facebook (Mac or PC computer web browser), or Facebook Gameroom (PC computer).  The app offers a free puzzle a day but we also received 500 coins to play with.

The Daily Bible Jigsaw was fun to play.  Once you sign up for your free account you are offered a free puzzle a day to complete.  We chose to just login with my email account but if you login with Facebook you can:
  • earn 10 puzzle coins
  • challenge your friends
  • see friends' high scores
  • play in Weekly Tourney
  • share your puzzles

You have the option to just play the free puzzle of the day or you can purchase coins for additional play options. The puzzles have 30 pieces and once they are completed a bible verse pops up over the puzzle.  There is also calm soothing background music as you put the puzzle together. As you are playing an option comes up as a "power piece" and if you connect that piece in the puzzle you can earn a coin. The puzzles are timed so you have the challenge of trying to complete the puzzle in the shortest time possible.

In the puzzle window you also have help options available (must use coins to purchase).  You can press the ROTATE button that rotates all puzzle pieces to the proper orientation.  You can press the GUIDE button to see what the finished puzzle looks like. If you press the SWEEP button it pushes all the pieces to the sides.  If you use the MAGNET button it will connect two puzzle pieces together.  If you press the EDGES button it removes all pieces except for the edge pieces until you get them all connected. Once all the edge pieces are connected the remaining pieces reappear.

You earn awards as you complete puzzles but they don't seem to earn any coins. You are also offered BONUS PUZZLES to play for free or purchase and some of them are 56 piece challenge puzzles.

Both my 7th grade son and I played the app and enjoyed challenging each other's times on the puzzles.  My son seemed to lose interest after a while and he said the puzzles were not challenging enough for him.  I'm not sure I agree.  He may have gotten frustrated on a few since the puzzle pieces are not in the right orientation and I found that when I wanted to move a puzzle piece, if I was not careful, I ended up rotating the piece.  This was frustrating when it happened.

All things considered we would recommend the Daily Bible Jigsaw app.  It is a nice option to break up the monotony of the morning and afforded my son a break that still allowed him to have fun but use his mind at the same time.  The soothing music is pleasant.  I really enjoyed completing the puzzles and often completed 3 to 5 puzzles each time I played!  They also offer a Charlie Church Mouse Bible Adventures app that we did not try out.

You can connect with Planet 316 on FACEBOOK and TWITTER (@planet_316).

No Progress

Still no progress.  Sickness set in again and it has rained for the past 3 days now.   Heavy.  A LOT of rain.  It would have been good for the plants if I had gotten them in the ground!  Well, the weekend is not over yet and tomorrow promises to be a nice sunny, fairly cool, day.  Hopefully I can at least get the plants in that I have already bought.  Would be a nice plus to get more plants bought and in the ground too, but that might be wishful thinking!  Hope your garden is progressing well.  I will update again with hopefully more progress!

Hope and Encouragement

Not sure why, or who this is for, but felt to put a few words of encouragement out tonight.  Life can get tiring.  It can get overwhelming.  It can get down right exhausting.  But God.  God has a perfect plan for your life.  Yeah, we've all heard that before, right?  Well, He does.  Problem is most of us decided at some time in our life that we had a better way to do things and it has caused His path for us to veer to the right or left at times.  If we keep our eyes on Him, He will always lead us back to Him and onto the right path.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Jer 29:11-12  NKJV

Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.14 I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. Jer 29:12-14   NKJV

We must actively seek Him to find Him.  It is a choice we must make.  I would encourage you to make that choice.  When all seems lost and we just can't get out from under everything, the Lord says to lean on Him.  Cast our cares on Him.  Allow Him to fight our battles and carry us on wings like eagles. 
Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.  Ps 55:22   NKJV

 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.   Matthew 11:29   NKJV
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."  Matthew 11:30   NKJV

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 
8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.  1 Peter 5:6-11 NIV

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isa 40:31  NIV

Praying and believing you will be filled with hope today.
