God Bless Us Everyone __FULL__
When the world is feeling cold and the sky more grey than blue And the snow it seems to fall heavy heartedly on you Time to count your blessings though seemingly but few Time to take a look at what's within and without you For health is more than walking And wealth much more than gold But kindness overwhelming as a gentle hand to hold

On November 21, a segment of Leute Heute, a German tabloid-program on ZDF, was about My Christmas and Bocelli's meeting in Rome with Pope Benedict XVI and 250 other artists, an event which was broadcast live earlier that day in Italy, by Rai Uno. Bocelli was also joined by the Piccolo Coro dell'Antoniano, in his home in Forte dei Marmi, where they sang "Caro Gesù Bambino", a song from My Christmas which was originally recorded by the choir in 1960. Rai Uno also broadcast the performance later that day, during the Zecchino d'Oro Festival. The following day, Bocelli was among Fabio Fazio's guests, on his popular Italian talk-show, Che tempo che fa, broadcast on Rai Tre. During the program Bocelli talked about his album and performed "The Lord's Prayer", "White Christmas", and "Silent Night". It was also announced that Bocelli will return to the show, December 20, where he will give a live concert of My Christmas. Bocelli also took part in the annual 2009 José Carreras Gala, on December 17, where he sang Adeste Fideles, before singing "White Christmas" with José Carreras for the very first time, which was broadcast live, by Das Erste, in Germany. He then returning to Italy, for a concert in the Upper Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi, on December 19, which was broadcast directly after the Urbi et Orbi blessing of Pope Benedict XVI, December 25, on Rai Uno.
There's pretty much a version of Scrooge for everyone out there, but five-time Oscar-nominated actor Albert Finney is most decidedly not for me. There's something about his performance that is strange and off-putting. Perhaps it's his penchant for lurching about with a twisted grimace and a hunched back, or the fact that his character can't quite seem to come to grips with the lessons the spirits are trying to teach him. Then there's the fact that this is a musical rendition of the tale, and while that may be great for some folks, it's not my bowl of gruel.
That being said, the story of Tyson's Scrooge from her traumatic childhood through her isolated adulthood and late-in-coming redemption might not be to everyone's liking. While the gender and race swap for this version is admirable, there's also an odd attempt to shoehorn racial tensions and gender inequality in the workplace into the story. Those issues are raised but never brought to a satisfactory conclusion, so they fall short, just like Tyson's delivery of Scrooge's redemptive moment at the movie's end. Still, a worthy watch if you're looking for an alternative take on the classic story. - Dave Trumbore

Born into poverty, brutalised and ignored by her family, it is only when she is married off to a nobleman that her life undergoes a transformation, as her husband recognises in Rosamund a magic she does not know she possesses but which affects almost all who encounter her. Presiding over a luxurious chocolate house where men go to be seen, exchange news and indulge in the sweet and heady drink to which they have become addicted, Rosamund feels blessed. But disaster strikes, and Rosamund stands on the brink of losing all she has worked so hard to achieve.
The greatest blessing any of us can ever receive is God Himself. The reality that the creator of the universe loves us and wants a relationship with us could never be matched. He loves us enough to guide us and give us joy, regardless of what we face. When we follow Him and bask in the fulness of this love, He is glorified in the way we confess with our mouths and live out our obedience to Him.
