Bode does a Brett Favre

Just like Brett Favre can't walk away from the NFL, it seems Bode Miller can't walk away from the US Ski Team.

Earlier today, The Denver Post reported that Bode Miller will return to the US Ski Team this year.

I'm not getting my hopes up for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The memories of Turin 2006 are still too embarrassing.

Surprise! 4 Baby Guinea Pigs.

Our two girl albino guinea pigs surprised us last night with 4 BABY GUINEA PIGS!

Sophie says, "That's why Merlot was getting so fat!"

We are now looking for adoptive families.

...That's what I like to see!

This is a shot from the Arapahoe Basin webcam looking at the top of the Lenawee Mountain Chairlift. It was taken around 12:50pm today.

Ahhhh, sweet snow. I hope to get my first turns of the 2009-2010 ski season at Arapahoe Basin in about a month.

...Pray for snow.

Summer was great.
And this year's fall season in Colorado also promises to be a good one.
But the obsessive skier says, "Pray for snow!"

It won't be long before they start blowing snow up at Loveland and A-Basin. Get the scoop here from

...forgiveness changes people.

Just like Stephen's last words were used by God to change Saul into Paul (see Acts 7:60), so can our words in response to our enemies be used by God to change them into the people He wants them to be.

Lord, teach me how I need to control my tongue. I need all the power of the Holy Spirit to not respond to hate with hate. Fill me today, Holy Spirit, so that I can be a good witness for Jesus, by your power. Only by your grace is this possible, Lord. Please give me more grace. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Thanks to John McGary for leading me to this one.

...Forever a Cardinals Baseball Fan.

I remember visiting the Old Busch Stadium with my Dad in the mid-70's and watching Al Hrabosky (AKA "The Mad Hungarian") pitch for the Cardinals. But that's not the only reason that I'm still a St. Louis Cardinals fan. Stories like this one involving Albert Pujols are also a big part of why I'll be a fan of the red birds forever.

"He lay on his back in the dirt of the Pittsburgh ballpark. His neck hurt. Striking his face on the crushed rock along the first-base side felt like breaking through glass. He was bloodied. And the foul ball was gone. He had missed it, missed his one chance to grab a game ball for his son on the boy's 21st birthday."

Thanks, Tim Challies, for pointing me to this article.
