From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 03/29/15:

“Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other.”

     From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 03/29/16 - "Jesus":


Jesus' Death - 60 seconds to understand 60 seconds with God...

For the next 60 seconds, set aside whatever you're doing and take this opportunity!
Let's see if Satan can stop this.

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.  At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals were condemned to be crucified. Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.  Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.  The nails were driven into His wrist.  Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed.  There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breathe.

Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breathe. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage.

Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours.  Yes, over 3 hours!  Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds.

From common images, we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side... But do we realize His wounds were actually made in His body. A hammer driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped and an even large nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture.  He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters (just less than a gallon) of blood.

Jesus poured all 3.5 liters of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His members; a crown of thorns on His headband, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest.  All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where His hands were nailed).

Jesus had to endure this experience, so that we can have free access to God.  So that our sins could be "washed" away. All of them, with no exception!

JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR US!  He died for us!

...60 seconds with God... For the next 60 seconds, set aside what you're doing and take this opportunity!  Let's see if Satan can stop this.  All you have to do is:

1. Simply pray for the person who sent this message to you:
2. Then, send this message to 10 people... More if you wish.
3. 10 people will pray for you and you will make that many people pray to God for other people.
4. Take a moment to appreciate the power of God in your life, for doing what pleases Him.

If you are not ashamed to do this, please, follow Jesus' instructions. He said (Matthew 10:32 & 33): "Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before My Father in heaven; but whosoever denies Me before others, I also will deny before My Father in heaven."

If you believe, send this message... But send it only if you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  Yes, I love God. He is my source of life and my Savior. He keeps me alive day and night.  Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me."  Philippians 4:13.

..."Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid"...

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and sings it to you when you've forgotten the words.

   Thank you for this post-Easter message, Sarah Sugar! We've just shared it with over 650 people!

    From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 03/29/16 - "WHEN GOD CREATED WOMAN":


When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day.......
An angel came by and asked, "Why spend so much time on her?"
The Lord answered. "Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?"
She must function on all kinds of situations,
She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time,
Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart,
She must do all this with only two hands.
She cures herself when sick, and can work 18 hours a day."
THE ANGEL was impressed "Just two hands.....impossible! And this is the standard model?"
The Angel came closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord".
"She is soft," said the Lord,
"But I have made her strong. You can't imagine what she can endure and overcome."
"Can she think?" the Angel asked.
The Lord answered, "Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate."
The Angel touched her cheeks.
"Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her."
"She is not leaking; it is a tear," the Lord corrected the Angel.
"What's it for?" asked the Angel.
The Lord said. "Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride."
This made a big impression on the Angel.
"Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything.
A woman is indeed marvelous."
Lord said, "Indeed she is.
"She has strength that amazes a man.
"She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
"She holds happiness, love and opinions.
"She smiles when she feels like screaming.
"She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
"She fights for what she believes in.
"Her love is unconditional.
"Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies, but she finds strength to get on with life."
The Angel asked: "So she is a perfect being?"
The Lord replied: "No. She has just one drawback.
"She often forgets what she is worth."

   Thanks so much, Joyce!

Two-Inch Flower Crochet Patterns - "This flower is one of my favorite designs included on our list of easy crochet flower patterns. It's a sweet nothing of a little flower that's quick to crochet. My sample flower measures a little less than two inches, and it's only two rounds. Of course, if you crochet this pattern, your flower may turn out to be a different size, depending on the materials you use. I used a baby yarn to crochet my sample flower. If you'd like your flower to be bigger, you can use a thicker yarn. If you want a really tiny flower, use crochet thread or embroidery floss to make a miniature version."
