Merry Christmas to all who visit my blog...

I'll be taking a blogging break after today, hopefully returning (Lord willing and if the creek don't rise, as they say in Texas), on January 4th, 2006.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish heartfelt Christmas blessings to those of you who take the time to stop by this blog. May you have a wonderful Christmas!

In my absence, I'd also like to invite you to check out some of my posts from this past year. Some are serious, some are fun--kind of like my blog itself!

Following the list of links to past blogs, as a Christmas card to my readers, I'm posting the lyrics to the wonderful Chris Rice song, "Welcome to Our World."

Best of 2005

My interview with Joni Eareckson Tada: The danger of "Million Dollar Baby"

Of Bill Maher and suffering and faith

My most admired women

Worshipping the goddess of anorexia???

I was evacuated out of the U.S. Capitol

And more harrowing adventures...

My interview with Schindler family attorney David Gibbs III

The debt I owe John Glenn

"Faithful Women":--my interview with Noel Piper

I'm in love with Taylor, the Latte Boy

What I have in common with Cindy Sheehan

My top 25 books of all time

Is anything as gripping as Handel's "Messiah"?

My favorite Christmas music

Welcome to Our World...
(For a sound clip of Chris playing the song on his The living Room Sessions Christmas CD, go here.)

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You've been promised, we've been waiting
Welcome Holy Child
Welcome Holy Child

Hope that you don't mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But long awaited Holy Stranger
Make yourself at home
Please make yourself at home

Bring your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world--Chris Rice
