HAPPILY MARRIED COUPLES: What have you done for your marriage today?Successful marriages don’t work on automatic pilot – at least not for long. Like a garden, they require constant attention: fertilizing, watering, and weeding. Healthy marriages, like gardens, don’t die suddenly. More often they fade away from a gradual lack of attentiveness, letting things slide, taking each other for granted. Join us for a Worldwide Marriage Encounter and discover God’s plan for joy, romance and passion in your marriage. The next Marriage Encounter Weekend is May 29-31 at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Tampa.Contact 813 270-7832 for more information about the weekend or apply on-line at www.wwmetampabay.org (and don’t forget to ask about our reduced application rate!)
