2 hour delays and other things...

Today I am having a 2-hr. delay for the second day in a row. Its not really too snowy in Blacksburg, but it is cold, and it was probably snowing/icy in Giles when they made the call several hours ago!

I'm using the extra time to post a few things up here. I know its been a while since I've posted... during that time we did our annual NFL game weekend (this year was Baltimore) as well as Thanksgiving and the last Hokie home football game of the season against arch rival UVA. I have pictures to share of these events, and will try to get them up soon.

In the meantime, I wanted to post a website that you all need to check out if you haven't already: http://www.adventconspiracy.org/

The whole point of this is to refocus our minds as followers of Jesus back on what matters -- and that's Christ and sharing Christ's love to all. What better way to share the love of Jesus, who made the ultimate sacrifice, than for us to "sacrifice" our normal ways of celebrating in this capitalistic consumer culture and to instead give our time, money, and resources to help those in need?

Something to chew on during the holiday season...
