After a week of awful news from the NFL we might like something more positive. In the “some guys seemed charmed” department lets go to Colorado. Peyton Manning not only likes playing for the Denver Broncos, he is also diggin’ living in the land of legal marijuana.
“There’s some different laws out here in Colorado,” Manning told Sports Illustrated. “Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes.” The Denver Broncos’ quarterback serendipitously bought a whole bunch of Papa John’s franchises just before Colorado residents voted to legalize recreational marijuana.
Peyton scores again.

To forgive somebody is to say one way or another, “You have done something unspeakable, and by all rights I should call it quits between us. Both my pride and my principles demand no less. However, although I make no guarantees that I will be able to forget what you’ve done, and though we may both carry the scars for life, I refuse to let it stand between us. I still want you for my friend.” To accept forgiveness means to admit that you’ve done something unspeakable that needs to be forgiven, and thus both parties must swallow the same thing: their pride. ~ Fredrick Buechner

I’m thanking you, God, out in the streets,
singing your praises in town and country.
The deeper your love,
the higher it goes;
every cloud’s a flag to your faithfulness.
Soar high in the skies, O God!
Cover the whole earth with your glory!
(Psalm 108 The Message)

This is one of my favorite quotes from poetry:
Earth’s crammed with heaven
And every common bush
Afire with God
But only he who sees,
Takes off his shoes.
The rest sit round it,
And pluck blackberries.
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Certainly the Grand Tetons are crammed with the beauty of God
It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased. ~ C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory, and Other Addresses
