WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
"For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son, in order that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear shall live. For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He gave to the Son also to have life in Himself; and He gave Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs shall hear His voice, and shall come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment. I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
For there is no partiality with God. For all who have sinned without the Law will also perish without the Law; and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged by the Law; for not the hearers of the Law are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified. For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these not having the Law, are a law to themselves, in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness, and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.
"THOSE WHO REJECT CHRIST AS SAVIOR
WILL FACE HIM AS JUDGE."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - April, 2004 Issue.
"For where two or three have gathered
together in My name, there
I am in their midst." Matthew 18:20

work one double crochet

which would be at the base of the chain 3. This should make a

How to keep from having holes in a project border.
When your pattern tells you to work into the ends of the rows for a border, place the indicated stitches into the threads of the stitches at the row ends, not around the post of each stitch. Working around the post of the stitches leaves holes and working into the threads of the stitches doesn't. This makes the edge nicer!

It's a wonderful site that is very informational. They ask for 7" x 9" squares or entire afghans.
They also supply free patterns. Hope this is helpful.
YOUR NEWSLETTER HAS PUT ME IN TOUCH WITH SEVERAL CHARITIES LOOKING FOR CROCHETED GOODS. WHEN I'M IN BETWEEN MY OWN HOME AND FAMILY PROJECTS, I LOOK TO SEE WHERE I CAN HELP OUT. I HAVE OFTEN WONDERED, AND MAYBE YOU CAN ANSWER ME, WHEN AN ORGANIZATION IS LOOKING FOR 6 OR 12 INCH SQUARES TO PUT TOGETHER INTO AFGHANS, IS THERE A CERTAIN SQUARE PATTERN THAT SHOULD BE USED?
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THAT YOU DO.

* My Pet Peeve:
By Cylinda Mathews
My personal pet peeve is to find an error at the very end of
a big pattern. About 6 years ago, I chose a lovely tablecloth
pattern from either a Magic or Decorative Crochet magazine
to make for my mom. On the last two rnds, after months of
working on this cloth, I found an error. Because these patterns
are in symbol crochet, and the edge of the cloth was hidden in
the picture, I had to design my own edging. My other pet peeve
is an error at the very beginning. If you can't figure it out, or
contact the designer, you can't even begin!
What's your pet peeve?

For a while my husband and I had opposite schedules. He
worked during the day, and I worked at night. One morning
I noticed he had left a not to himself on the kitchen
counter that read, "STAMPS!"
As a helpful surprise, I bought him some at the post office
and put them on the counter before going to work...
The next morning I found the same note. The word "STAMPS!"
was crossed out. Underneath it he had written, "ONE MILLION
My doctor recently told me that jogging could add years to my
life. I think he was right. I've only been jogging once and
feel ten years older already.
After years of using the same perfumes, I decided to try
something different and settled on a light, citrusy fragrance.
The next day I was surprised when it was my little boy, not my
husband, who first noticed the change. As he put his arms around
me, he declared, "Wow, Mom, you smell just like Froot Loops!"
An old snake goes to see his Doctor. "Doc, I need something for my eyes,
I can't see very well these days."
The Doc fixes him up with a pair of glasses and tells him to return in 2
The snake comes back in 2 weeks and tells the doctor he's very depressed.
Doc says, "What's the problem? Didn't the glasses help you?"
"The glasses are fine doc, but I just discovered I've been living with a
water hose the past 2 years!"
In a class on abnormal psychology, the instructor was about to
introduce the subject of manic depression. The instructor
asked, "How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and
forth, screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits
in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next?"
A young man in the rear raised his hand and suggested earnestly,
"A basketball coach?"
While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly
shut-ins, I used to take my four-year-old daughter on my afternoon
rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old
age, particularly the canes, walkers, and wheelchairs. One day I found
her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass.
As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely
turned and whispered, "The tooth fairy will never believe this!"
The census taker knocked on the lady's door. She answered
all his questions except one. She refused to tell him her age.
"But everyone tells their age to the census taker," he said.
"Did Miss Maisy Hill, and Miss Daisy Hill tell you their
ages?" she asked.
"Certainly." he replied
"Well, I'm the same age as they are." she snapped.
The census taker simply wrote on the form, "As old as the Hills,"
A drunk stumbles along a baptismal service on Sunday
afternoon down by the river.
He proceeds to walk down into the water and stand next to
the Preacher. The minister turns and notices the old drunk
and says, "Mister, Are you ready to find Jesus?"
The drunk looks back and says, "Yess, Preacher..I sure am."
The minister then dunks the fellow under the water and pulls
him right back up. "Have you found Jesus?" the preacher
"Nooo, I didn't!" said the drunk.
The preacher then dunks him under for quite a bit longer,
brings him up and says, "Now, brother, have you found
"Noooo, I did not Reverend."
The preacher in disgust holds the man under for at least 30
seconds this time, brings him out of the water and says in a
harsh tone, "My God, man, have you found Jesus yet?"
The old drunk wipes his eyes and says to the preacher... "Are
you sure this is where he fell in?"
