Marriage Encounter Magic Moments with Joseph McG

Last week I was in Houston attending a wonderful session on Leading Through Relationship. The presenters were just making one heavy, heavy point when...
(that's right) the fire alarm went off. Out the door I went... and stood out in the warm eighty two degree sunshine for about five minutes. No fire engines... no one said come on in. People just started going back in. Best I heard about this: the fire alarm (in a non-smoking hotel) went off near the WOMEN'S RESTROOM!!!


Two weeks before my trip to Houston I had gotten so excited about what Marriage Encounter can do for couples in good marriages who wanted their marriages to be even better. I grabbed my buddy, Ann, one fine fall morning and asked her to video me while I busted loose... and here's my love rap... (for children, teenagers, young adults, and seniors only)


CAN YOU DIG IT!!!!!!

Wonderful spirit and enthusiasm, Joseph! I am sure that everyone who spent time with you in Huston could not have failed to have enjoyed it.

Stephanie: I can strut my stuff, that's for sure... and there was some teasing and laughing...
At the same time I learned a tremendous amount, including that I need to keep working at becoming a healthy human being...

Keep It Real

I believe that is our lifelong job, Joseph. We are all walking that road. I love it when you dance down it!

I have got my rhyme and meter book, my dictionary, and a book of poetry that must have been composed in the 1940s... now I get stuck, these are my options: read scriptures, tend to marriage encounter business, reflect on health and wellness, focus on the world of politics/economics/war/peace around me, work on my book, autobiography, or write poems...
I think I shall stick with the poems...

the world can be stark
or full of delight
sometimes
my words must bark
other times
shine bright
and frequently
my words must bite!

Joseph - Whose the GREAT photographer lately? Are you taking these photos via self-mounted tripod or is there a photographic genius collaborating with you?

Dear Joseph,

Margaret, Kathleen and I had lunch together last week and we all were wondering where you were and what you were up to! Still dancing, listening and loving, I see! Much love from some SNJM "graduates" who still get together once in awhile!
