Joy to the World - Far as the Curse is Found

Recently, I noticed something very interesting while listening to a local religious radio station. With the unending Christmas carols, I heard four different renditions of Joy to the World, as performed by different artists, in the space of one hour alone. What was interesting is that none of the artists ever sung the third verse.

I'm Not What You're Used To!

I was at lunch the other day enjoying good food and conversation with some friends. One of them was discussing what he was like before we knew him and made this statement: “I’m not what you are used to.” My mind began to reel! I wonder if Jesus said that: I can imagine him thinking that.
