happy hearts day {love someone today}...

the word love appears in the Bible over 500 times...

love is an action verb...

we are told that the two greatest commandments are to "love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind" and to "love your neighbor as yourself"...Matthew 2:37-39

"God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us"...Romans 5:8

hope your {hearts} day was a happy one!

we came, we played, we conquered {trivia, that is}...

last night we returned to sesame burgers and beer and played trivia as a family.  our team name, developed over about 30 minutes of deep thought by our son as we ran a quick errand in target before dinner, is "results may vary" (and if you know us, you know this can be true).

but the best part of the evening?...we won second place and a $20 tab!  yah us!  thankfully being teachers (which means you tend to run into all kinds of interesting novelties and facts) as well as our childrens' wonderful private school education came in handy and was put to good use.

the possible worst part?  after playing for two and half hours, our bill was $77 for a family of five and we now have to go back soon and defend our title.  maybe next time we'll win first and $30...
