var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”); document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + gaJsHost + “’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”)); I recently spent roughly ten days in Las Vegas and I come away amazed at what goes on in that town each time.  The money spent.  The alcohol consumed.  The scantily-clad dancers in the middle of casinos and the who-knows-how-clad dancers in other places.  The smoke.  The noise.  It’s sensory overload.

All in all, I had a good ten days there.  There is so much to create temptation after temptation and short of staying up too late and donating my $100 to the craps table (when I was up $50 and knew I should walk away), I survived it relatively unscathed. 

I had seen a t-shirt before I left town playing on Vegas’ tag line that said, “what happens in Vegas is revealed in heaven.”  So true. 

I listened to Rob Bell’s Love Wins book on the way home and kept wondering what God will say to all the folks that make Las Vegas what it is when they meet him.  No answers, just questions.  (And possibly more on Bell’s book later.)

It was a good run for our company in Las Vegas but I’m glad to be out of there, glad I didn’t do anything I would be regretting today and glad I don’t have to be surrounded by that all the time. 

Grace and peace to you.
