I know I said I would post more responses from my "Why do you comment?" post, but I forgot all about Thursday Thirteen! So, here we go...13 things to tell you about. If you don't have time to check out some of these links, just bookmark it and come back later. But do comment to let me know you stopped by.
1. Why have I never heard of Celtic Woman? Beautiful! Thanks to DK and Randy.
2. This 7 year old singer is incredible. (His leg twitching does make it look like he needs to go to the bathroom, though. :)) Hat tip to Granny.
3. Carve your own virtual pumpkin.
4. This tiny dancer may tell you if you're more left-brained or right-brained. Or it might just drive you crazy, as it did Angie of A Life in Pages.
5. Some amusing blogging-related cartoons are here-and you can use them on your blog for free. Hat tip to Good Brownie.
6. Darren and I were delighted to have singer Vicky Beeching in the studio with us today. This lovely Brit is not only talented and beautiful, she's intelligent and has a fantastic sense of humor! (Not to mention the fact that I could listen to someone read the phone book with a British accent and I'd be perfectly happy.) She also has a real heart for God. Vicky, you were a joy!
7. Talking about all things British with Vicky Beeching (including the rather rude assumption that all British people have bad teeth--let me assure you, Vicky didn't), led to our playing one of my very favorite Monty Python skits.
8. Mei Flower has some intriguing trivia.
9. Mama Mia, that's one fattening burrito!
10. Speaking of pythons...how'd you like to find one in your toilet? This woman did.
11. "The Ten Commandments" animated movie opens in theaters tomorrow, launching a 12-part computer-animated movie series dubbed "Epic Stories of the Bible." Promenade Pictures will later release some live-actions films, including one based on the book "Gideon's Gift" by Karen Kingsbury.
12. Like, y'know, this guy really nails it, y'know what I'm sayin'? Hat tip to the Pyromaniacs' Dan Phillips, who puts a spiritual spin on it:
In an age in which Christians should be called to know what and why we believe, and to say it with conviction, instead the very foundational truths on which Christian truth-claims rest are being held at arm's length. And this stance is held up as virtuous, rather than pilloried as cowardly and disastrous.
13. A chance to win Amy Grant's new book, Mosaic, here. And here.
