Wow. Words cannot describe this.
About all I can think of to say is that these would be the best white elephant gifts EVER to bring to your next church Christmas party.

What’s going through your mind, Christian? It’s okay… you can admit it…
“It’s CHRISTMAS you moron!”
Yep. I thought so.
Maybe you’ve been offended by the greeting. Maybe you’ve even verbalized it to the well-meaning (but misguided) person who thought they’d pleasantly wished you well this season. Maybe you’ve even decided you’re not shopping anywhere that “Christmas” is not well, um… spoken?
Yeah. We Christians can be such kill-joys during the “Holiday” season.
The point of this post? You probably know where I’m going, but you won’t find the rest here… it’s over at Todd Littleton’s place (he’s shared some good stuff).
Anyway, check out Todd’s thoughts on the never-ending war over “Christmas”: “What if Retailers Rated Christians?”
Oh, and prepare for a nice load of conviction.

This is too funny not to post. Hail to the king!

If you know me or have been following my blog for a while, you know I’ve been battling a cholesteatoma tumor (basically a benign growth in the middle ear that results in hearing loss) for a while (see here and here).
On Monday, I had my second round of surgery to correct the problem. It’s got a long technical name, of course (something along the lines of “revision tympanoplasty mastoidectomy” something or other), but the basic procedure was almost identical to before… general anesthetic (a real trip if you’ve never had it), a nice long incision (one that apparently comes pretty darned close to lopping off my ear completely), doctors’ inspection / removal of any regrowth of the tumor, reconstruction of the bones of the middle ear (yep, bionic man, that’s me), and then a patch job to put me back together (I’m sure they use superglue / duct tape in the process somehow).
All in all, it’s an amazing procedure, and according to doctors, it was a complete success… there was no tumor regrowth, and the reconstruction went smoothly. With no damage to nerves evident (from hearing tests prior to surgery), I’m expected to regain nearly all of my hearing.
So now there’s the healing process. I can’t hear completely YET, so for now, be sure to talk into my RIGHT ear if you really need me to hear you.
But remember, that won’t last forever. One of these days I’m gonna surprise all of you who think you can get away with saying things you really don’t want me to hear simply by talking on my left side!
