there's an elephant in the room and triple espresso

we spent yesterday with great friends winn and betsy. first we attended eablebrook church. they just started a new series called "there's an elephant in the room" the first elephant is in the family room. we learned that the lack of moral authority in our families is winning in our culture and we were encouraged as parents to stay the course and don't give up...our kid's lives our at stake! it was a very powerful message and we were joking that we tried to 'escape" for a weekend...visit another church etc...but we could not hide from what all four of us needed to hear this weekend!

"Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that's in you, love him with all you've got! Write these commandments that I've given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night." Deut 6:5-7 the message

the day was capped off with going to see "triple espresso" a great, clean, hilarious play about three guys trying to make it in showbiz! this show has run for 12 years staight in the twin cities and ends on april need to try to see this before it ends!
