Wednesday, December 29, 2010

There's not much time left in 2010.
Do you have any goals scheduled for this year that you can still accomplish?
Sure - losing 20 lbs isn't going to happen in 56 hours, but what about cleaning out that closet or garage?
You could still do that this year!
Perhaps you need to take a load of stuff to Goodwill - load up the car!
Don't delay if you want to end 2010 with a clean slate!

Sixpence None The Richer

There weren't many movies made in the 1990s that did NOT feature Sixpence's mega-hit "Kiss Me." It was a massive crossover success that the band utilized to play for a broader audience than their bluesy Christian roots would have normally ever allowed. Toss in some great Christmas music, several Christian radio hits and plenty of awards and nominations and you get a career that has quietly been impacting lives for nearly two decades.

Their quirky name comes from a passage in CS Lewis' Mere Christianity. Leigh Nash explained it on the Late Show with David Letterman:

It comes from a book by C. S. Lewis called Mere Christianity. A little boy asks his father if he can get a sixpence—a very small amount of English currency—to go and get a gift for his father. The father gladly accepts the gift and he's really happy with it, but he also realizes that he's not any richer for the transaction. C.S. Lewis was comparing that to his belief that God has given him, and us, the gifts that we possess, and to serve Him the way we should, we should do it humbly—realizing how we got the gifts in the first place.
