my first post... from beaver creek


so... this is my first bloggy. I'm here at Beaver Creek enjoying the company of the new additions to my family. My wife and I are taking a much needed time of rest in the mountains of Colorado. It's stunning here and I'm having a blast between sleeping, not setting an alarm, watching movies, updating myself on Heroes, and reading. Oh... and eating a bit too much pizza and fudge. All in good fun.

Whitney and I sat on a bench down by the creek in the woods and read a bit of Narnia today. This place is pretty magical, so it's the perfect place to read C.S. Lewis. We're currently reading Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe. I had read it before, but in marriage you find yourself wanting to experience things again, but in their company. Whitney and I have been drawn to children's books lately, and I'm of the opinion that there is great value in living like a child every once in a while. It really assists me in my adulthood.

For example, we read the chapter where Aslan willingly gives his life for the crime Edmund committed. I couldn't help but be overwhelmed by the sacrifice of Jesus while reading. We really take the cross for granted, and I don't think we really grasp how huge that was. God is so superior to us. He's the grand architect of the universe, the one that's always existed, a truly perfect being. But having every right not to associate with us, he chose to sit beside us in our mess. We could stop there and still be astounded... but He didn't stop there. He was murdered for the crimes we have committed and the ones we're committing even right now. So, in the woods of Beaver Creek I repented for taking such a thing for granted. Pretty good stuff from a children's book.

So, tomorrow we're leaving and it's back to life on the road. Be praying for me and Whitney (and the rest of the band) as we head out on this Fall tour. It's a big under taking, and we want God to use us tremendously.

Much love.

Beaver Creek has been too short...but there's always Nashville.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
