Jesus and the Jonas Brothers


















Our church is pretty hip, and over the years we have seen quite a few celebrity-ish people in our midst. Most are professional athletes and television personalities, and while Jimmy and I are sometimes mildly impressed, rarely do our children even take a second glance when the famous person is pointed out.

But today, today was a very different story.

Today, THE JONAS BROTHERS WERE AT OUR CHURCH!

I screamed that last sentence, not because I'm some weird, rabid middle-aged JB fanatic; but rather, I wanted to convey the same level of excitement that my children (particularly our 11 and 13 year old girls) exhibited when they discovered that...

THE JONAS BROTHERS WERE AT OUR CHURCH!

They have a home nearby and come to our church when they are in town. Today they sat in one of the back rows and were seen by many people, including several of the Sunday school teachers. Sadly, none of our children saw the brothers. Nope, Jimmy was the only one who spotted them as they walked by us and he couldn't have cared less.

Oh, the sad, cruel irony of it all.

Still, you know my children can't get to school fast enough tomorrow because...

THE JONAS BROTHERS WERE AT OUR CHURCH!

Now, just to clarify that celebrity sightings aren't totally lost on me, maybe if we could get, say, TOM SELLECK to join our congregation, this weird, rabid, middle-aged TS fan might then be required to type her Selleck-sighting response in all caps.





AMEN!

I'm glad to know the JB's go to church. Too bad that isn't in the press.

Now, I'd have to include George Straight, John Travolta and Brad Pitt to your Tom list.

Do you go to church in Grapevine?

Also, I'm disappointed I can't come Saturday. :( Allan is turning 3 that day, so we are having his family b-day party @ 1:30. Thank you for the invite though.
