After signing up with Postmaster General our newsletter subscriber base has decreased quite a bit. If you have any problems regarding your subscription please bring them to my attention. I want to make sure everyone who wants to receive our newsletter does. Postmaster General "prunes" (deletes) a member's email address if it encounters three (3) failed delivery attempts so be sure to keep your mailbox checked around the 15th and 30th of each month and email me if you have any questions.
On another note, I am a contributing editor for Suite 101.com. I monitor the Crochet 'N' More Topic and would like to invite you to browse through the articles and discussions listed there:
Thanks & have a happy, safe 4th of July holiday.

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
"If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed."
Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then you also can do good who are accustomed to do evil.
Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace.
"MASTER YOUR HABITS OR YOUR HABITS WILL MASTER YOU."
This quote is from Our Daily Bread - July, 2001 Issue.
