Hooked on Tumse hi....

I picked up a few books by A.J. Cronin last month.... and some of them turned out to be really good.
The Keys of the Kingdom: This was a great read, loved the way he protrayed the faith and belief of a humble priest, Fr. Francis Chisolm. Fr. Chisolm is sent as a missionary to China, cause his way of thinking was unlike the other priests of his time. He was unconventional, he believed that God was the same... whatever name you use to call Him by. His attitude towards the protestant missionaries was rather nice too, he welcomed them instead of shunning their ways.

Grown Up Christmas List.....

Heard this song by Amy Grant today.... can't get it out of my head now.



Do you remember me
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies

Well I'm all grown-up now
And still need help somehow
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream

So here's my lifelong wish
My grown-up Christmas list
Not for myself
But for a world in need

[Chorus:]
No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list

As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree

Well heaven surely knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal a hurting human soul
