A Farewell Top Ten 

I've decided to take a sabbatical from this blog to concentrate on some other things for a while, so this will be the last post until 2007. For at least the next two weeks, you'll be able to catch me periodically on the Congo Team blog.

I would greatly appreciate your prayers as Alex and I fly on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, followed by a few days each in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, and finally London before flying home on September 17. Pray for my wife and kids during this time of separation. Pray that we would be an encouragement to the missionaries we support. Pray that God would make the path straight and clear for our anticipated ministry trip next summer. But most of all, pray that God would demonstrate His sovereignty, His grace, and His glory in, around, and through us as we travel, minister, and lead in the weeks and months to come.

I want to thank each of my faithful readers and distinguished guests who have made blogging a rewarding experience for the last year, particularly those who participated in the dialogue and encouraged me to keep posting. By way of appreciation, I thought I would post some of the most popular previous entries, which may be of particular interest to some that have joined the readership more recently. Here are the Top Ten (as ranked by a combination of inbound links, page views, and comments posted) Top Tens of 2006:

  1. Ways We Lack Free Will
  2. Runners Up for the Unpardonable Sin
  3. World's Thinnest Books
  4. Sports According to ????????*
  5. Things That I Never Thought I'd Hear Myself Say Before Having Kids
  6. CDs of God-honoring, Christ-exalting Music
    (and the follow up post of explanations)
  7. Ways to Reach First Base Safely*
  8. Palindromes I Find Amusing
  9. Greatest Poophemisms
  10. Celebrities Who ???? ???? ??*

*SPOILER WARNING - These posts contain the answers to challenges.

Also, please forgive me for re-listing the post on which it was declared that the blog had "officially jumped the shark" but to my credit, it has received more hits than any other non-challenge top ten. Apparently, shark-jumping can boost ratings.

I am very sad to see the blog I said, it provided a daily amusement for me, even if sometimes it "hit a nerve" or maybe I didn't even get it...but thank you for providing daily entertainment and even sometimes something to reflect on throughout the day...I have so many favorites, but right now I am leaning towards the cell phone/bible post!
