Ben Sheets is back




The Brew Crew is off and running in 2007. Ben Sheets pitched a complete game 2-hitter on Opening Day to lead the Brewers over the Dodgers, 7-1.

My bold prediction for the Brewers in 2007: an undefeated season. You heard it here first.

MotoKRZR


This is a phone that is coming out from Motorola in the next couple months. I worked on this phone. There is code that I wrote in this phone. If you use this phone, there's a chance you will use code that I wrote. I made part of this phone. I am in some way responsible for this awesome phone being in the hands of people like you. I am awesome.

Dwelling in God

I began to live as if there was none but He and I in the world.

Sometimes I considered myself before Him as a poor criminal at the feet of his judge. At other times I beheld Him in my heart as my Father, as my God. I worshipped Him the oftenest I could, keeping my mind in His holy presence and recalling it as often as I found it wandered from Him. I made this my business not only at the appointed times of prayer but all the time; every hour, every minute, even in the height of my work. I drove from my mind everything that interrupted my thoughts of God.

Though I have done it very imperfectly, I have found great advantages by it. These, I well know, are due to the mercy and goodness of God, because we can do nothing without Him; and I still less than any.
