WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so; and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. And if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who indwells you.
CHILDREN, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise),
THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.
And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger; but bring them up in the discipline
and instruction of the Lord.
"A CHRISTLIKE EXAMPLE IS THE GREATEST GIFT PARENTS CAN GIVE THEIR CHILDREN."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - May, 2001 Issue.

THANK YOU! I found your site yesterday and found a pattern for a cross that
I had been looking for for several years. Sometime ago I was given a
bookmark cross as a gift and lost it. As I do crocheting occasionally, I
thought I would try to find the pattern to replace it and looked in many crochet books to find it but to no avail. I was delighted to find it on your site. It was the pattern by Bonnie Decamp.

I'm almost finished with the afghan. I would be finished if I didn't have other crochet projects going at the same time. I can't resist a sale on the sugar n cream yarn so I've got lots of it. : ) I edged the latest dishcloth with the simple ruffle pattern that I got from your newsletter and it's really too pretty for a dishcloth. I think I will call it a washcloth or facecloth. : ) Paired with a bar of special soap, it would make a nice gift for my niece.
Thank you again for your newsletter and website.
------- SIMPLE RUFFLE ------
To add a simple ruffled edge to a project... attach yarn in any stitch, sc in same st, * ch 3, sc in next st. Repeat from * around. Join with sl st, fasten off and weave in ends.
Just wanted to let you know that my daughter had a little girl, 6lbs7oz.by emergency c-section this morning.
It was a bit of a scare as she hemoraged,but both mom and baby are doing well. Haley-Lynn arrived almost four weeks early,but thanks to God, she is healthy and safe. Thanks for the help,with the paterns. If it had not been for you, I probably wouldn't have even tried to follow a patern. But with your help,I am now I think on my way, to being able to tackle simple
patterns without a second thought.
Bye for now.

A film crew was on location deep in the desert. One day an old Indian went up to the director and said, "Tomorrow rain." The next day it rained. A week later, the Indian went up to the director and said, "Tomorrow storm." The next day there was a hailstorm. "This Indian is incredible," said the director. He told his secretary to hire the Indian to predict the weather for the remaining of the shoot. However, after several successful predictions, the old Indian didn't show up for two weeks. Finally the director sent for him. "I have to shoot a big scene tomorrow," said the director, "and I'm depending on you. What will the weather be like?" The Indian shrugged his shoulders. "Don't know," he said. "My radio is broken."
One Of America's Dumbest Criminals~~~
When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find an ill man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.
A newly ordained preacher and his young wife were talking about being more considerate of each other. The good wife promised that she would stop being so critical of his sleep-inducing sermons. He, in return, promised to honor her privacy and stop looking through her dresser drawers. The preacher was true to his word, and never looked through his wife's dresser drawers; the good wife was never openly critical of her husband's sermons; and their marriage progressed smoothly. After 50 years, their children gave a great party to celebrate the golden anniversary of the preacher and his wife. Many people came to congratulate the happy couple, and brought lovely gifts. That evening, as they were putting the gifts away, the preacher saw that his wife had left one dresser drawer slightly open. He tried as hard as he could to withstand the temptation, but he finally opened the drawer and looked inside. There he found 3 eggs, and $10,000.00, in bills of varied denominations. He was greatly puzzled by this, and went to question his wife. "Oh," she said. "Well, you remember when we spoke of being more considerate with each other all those years ago?" The preacher, feeling profoundly guilty, answered "yes." "Well," she continued, "I promised to stop criticizing your boring sermons, but every time you gave a sermon that was a real snoozer, I put an egg into that drawer." The preacher smiled. "Well, that's not so bad. 50 years of sermons and only 3 eggs! But what about all that money?" His wife quietly responded, "Every time I got a dozen eggs, I sold them."
Two little children, a boy and a girl, walked hand-in-hand to a neighbor's house. The little girl stood on her tiptoes and was just able to reach the doorbell. Then, an elderly lady greeted them at the front door. "Good morning, children," she said. "What can I do for you?" "We're playing house," the little girl answered. "This is my husband and I'm his wife. Can we come in?" Thoroughly enchanted by the scene confronting her, the elderly lady replied, "By all means, do come in." Once inside, she offered the children lemonade and cookies, which they graciously accepted. When a second tall glass of lemonade was offered, the little girl remarked, "No thank you. We have to go now. My husband just wet his pants."
A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's artwork. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and said, "but no one knows what God looks like." Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing the girl replied, "They will in a minute."
Four Golfing Duffers
A foursome of senior golfers hit the course with waning enthusiasm for the sport. "These hills are getting steeper as the years go by," one complained. "These fairways seem to be getting longer too," said one of the others. "The sand traps seem to be bigger than I remember them too," said the third senior. After hearing enough from his Senior buddies, the oldest, and the wisest of the four of them at 87 years old, piped up and said, "Oh my friends, just be thankful we're still on this side of the grass!"
