The Love Month - Feb 2011

***Joyful News***

Valentines is upon us and I was never quite sure what the fuss was about regarding this day. So I did my own investigating and goggled “What does Valentine’s Day mean?” and Wikipedia gave me this answer:

“Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 500 AD. It was deleted from the Roman calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.”

I think of LOVE as 1Cor 13:1-13. When you have a minute please read and it’s better to read it out loud.

***Joyful Tips***

Q. Can I learn to crochet if I am left-handed?
A. Anyone can learn to crochet, to teach a left-handed person to crochet I simply sit in front of them so they can have a mirror image.

Q. Is there a right or wrong way to hold your knitting needles or crochet hook?
A. There is not right or wrong way; it’s however you feel comfortable and what gives you a consistent tension.
