Skier's Psalm

Tough old geezer skiers need all the support they can get to keep them safe and happy. Many years ago I was in Vermont and in a little shop where I noticed a coffee cup with the Skiers Psalm written on the side. To my surprise it was the 121st Psalm from the Bible. The opening of the Psalm is "I look to the hills! Where will I find help? It will come from the Lord, who created the heavens and the earth." As I ski daily on and in God's creation I enjoy reflecting on my good fortune and comfort in the words of this Psalm. My special license plate is SKI 121 as a tribute to the protection of God that I feel.

Here's to another safe and injury free year for all of you on the slopes and elsewhere.
