All's Right with the World

I've been busily preparing for the Smalley "I Promise" Marriage Seminar that's going to be in St. Peters, MO on the 12th and 13th of September. I was in charge of registration, purchasing tickets, etc. I've been surprised at the number of couples who, despite the fact that their marriages are floundering, are not interested in help. My honey and I have been married 42 years, and we find that it can get better and better if you keep working on it. So, if you're satisfied with the status quo, I guess you can just remain in the same quagmire you've been in for ages. If not, things can change -- for the better.

We had the kids and grandkids all for dinner yesterday afternoon, and I never have them but that I spend the rest of the evening after they leave thanking God for each and every one of them. The oldest grandchild doesn't always get to come, because he's now a college student and working man. But he was here yesterday. It was a wonderful day.

The small caption that I used for my title kept coming to mind all morning. You remember it don't you? From Pippa's Song by Robert Browning

THE year 's at the spring,
And day 's at the morn;
Morning 's at seven;
The hill-side 's dew-pearl'd;
The lark 's on the wing; 5
The snail 's on the thorn;
God 's in His heaven—
All 's right with the world!

Have a blessed day!

I didn't know there was a Smalley conference coming to town. Jon and I have talked about attending something like this, but we need more notice. I may ask him, though. Schedules are so tight now with him in school, working, AND beginning to work with the campaign! See why we might could use a little help? J/K!
