Please drop me a note!

Volume 59, May-June 2004

"Look out for the young man who speaks of his father as the 'Governor,' the 'Squire,' or the 'Old Chap.' Look out for the young woman who calls her mother her 'maternal ancestor,' or the 'Old Woman.' "

“The eye that mocketh at his father and refuseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out and the young eagles shall eat it.”

Though we have been busier than usual this spring, this issue has been a fun one to put together. We have several new features to share with you this time (details below). We're are also very excited about phase two of HW's 2004 photo contest -- click here for more information on that.

Don't forget that it's not too late to fill out HW's 2004 survey! Quite a few have come in already, and everyone's opinion has been very helpful. If you haven't participated yet, please take a moment to do so. :-)

Here's an outline of what this issue contains:

Online Resources
A selection of quotes and poems submitted for this theme didn't fit in the printed issue, so I've included them here on HW's site. Check them out!
      • A Tribute to Mothers
      • Dear Dad...

I also found a few excellent resources on other websites that I thought you would be blessed by. Please keep in mind that I do not necessary agree with every point made in every article listed here (much less agree with other articles that are included on each of these websites!), but I have included each of these articles because they are thought-provoking and they motivated me to check out the Scriptures for my own. I pray you'll be motivated to do the same!
