Good News, 08.15.13

Friends:

“I thank You God for most this amazing
day; for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and sings; and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any—lifted from the no
of all nothing – human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)”

We hope to launch our new Website in early September. Dabbie announced that we are only $500 shy of our goal. Already this week $270 has come in. Thank you for your support. Dabbie and I trust you will be delighted by our new website and its incredible capabilities.

Please keep in your prayers: Annie, Marlene, our children and grandchildren, Joan, Fidel, and those who pray for us.

Stratford School had the Education Wing painted this week. It looks wonderful and they have covered the bill for this one.

We had 14 people join in the Rehearsal for our Jazz at Peace theme song: Sing Out! Clairdee and Ken French are great teachers – much fun was had. Details to come about the future rehearsal and recording date in September.
