      Hello fellow handmaidens of the Lord;

      IONA & SONJA UPDATE
      Thanks for your faithful prayers.
      Sonja is doing better and will transfer to a residential treatment
      canter Thursday. Our Lord heard your prayers and returned her safely to
      us.

      I am feeling some better. Pain is less and I will see another specialist
      March 10. Continue to pray that this pain in the neck disc/nerve problem
      can be solved so I can get on with web work!

      What a great and loving God we serve! I am believing for a miracle.

      MARCH HANDMAIDENS IS OUT
      http://ionanet.com/women/399

      Purity, Bankruptcy, Pruning, Health.... and many other topics make this
      issue a must read. This issue also contains wonderful art and literary
      works from our readers. God has given each of them a tremendous and
      lovely talent. Don't miss their fine works. If you go first to the
      Handmaidens Home Page, be sure to click on the March Issue link to see
      what we have for you

      The above link takes you directly to the March issue, but I hope you'll
      visit the Handmaidens Home Page, too, because there's some great new
      info there. Go to:
      http://ionanet.com/women/

      FREE GRAPHICS FOR YOU
      Some of you have admired the bordered backgrounds on Handmaidens. A new
      one is created for each issue. As a gift to you, I have posted them
      online. You may use them for personal or business pages. Just download
      to your own computer, please don't link directly to graphics on my
      server. You'll find a link for them on the Handmaidens Home Page.

      EYE CANDY SITE AWARDS
      Handmaidens has been nominated for this prestigious award! The
      competition is stiff. Previous winners include Microsoft Network and
      other "biggies." We're honored to have been nominated even though we
      don't expect to win... but you never know!

      GUESTBOOK
      Please take a moment to visit our guestbook. You'll find a link on the
      Handmaidens Home Page. It helps and encourages me to see what others
      think and it's a way for you to have some input on what goes into
      Handmaidens.

      PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD
      On the Handmaidens Home Page, you will find a form to tell a friend
      about Handmaidens. Just fill in your name and e-mail plus the e-mail of
      your friend. She will receive a note suggesting a visit our site.

      You can also help by voting for Handmaidens as a top Christian site.

      MEN LIKE IT, TOO!
      That's right. Men are reading and contributing to Handmaidens. I am
      pleased and pray men are blessed by it. I'm glad you're here, guys, but
      the focus of Handmaidens will remain on women.

      RUN WITH THE VISION
      http://ionanet.com/vision
      This new site for God's servants is complete and ready for your visit.
      We'll be adding to the inspirational writing and other features, so
      visit often.

      MY PRAYER
      O gracious Lord, I honor and praise you for your goodness and love.
      I thank You that You work through willing servants and pray You will
      enable and lead our visitors to serve as Your handmaidens. I pray each
      will be blessed in a very special and personal way, that each will be
      open to Your calling. Protect each one with a covering of the precious
      blood that was spilled for them. Let no harm come to them, neither in
      physical nor spiritual realms.

      Thank You for the many new Christian friends I have come to know through
      this ministry. Thank You for guiding my hand as I try in my inadequate
      way to serve You and reach out to others.

      Lord, I pray that believers the world over will rally to take over the
      internet for Christ. What an awesome tool You have given us. Please help
      us use it wisely.

      In the precious name of Jesus, Amen

      Blessings upon you!

          Hello Fellow Handmaidens;

          Sure hope you're having a glorious summer, blessed in every possible way! I also pray that you recognize all the wonderful and loving things our Father does for each of us every single day. Let's not forget to offer our gifts of praise which gladden His heart and enrich our own souls at the same time. Glory to His name!

          3) PRAYER REQUEST:
          Please pray for  Anthony. Here's an excerpt from his letter:

          "Even with these attacks of Vertigo from the Meniere's Disease, I am still
          trying to hold onto my full time job, though they are growing impatient.
          The disease has spread to my other ear, and the hearing loss has progressed.  The doctor did up my medication last week, and wants to do more tests in another three months or so.  But, the Lord has been good to me through it all."
          _________________________________

          4) IN GOD WE TRUST
          July 30 1956
          The motto "In God We Trust" was adopted as the US national motto by
          President Dwight Eisenhower.  The phrase, originally printed on US
          coins during the Civil War, was adopted as the national motto in part
          as a response to the growing influence of the Soviet Union around the
          world. History of the adoption of "In God We Trust":

          5) FEED THE HUNGRY (from Henrietta Johnson)
          This is pretty cool -- you can go to this site once a day and donate food
          to the hungry (through a corporate sponsor that advertises on the site.)

          http://www.thehungersite.com

          6) LAST CALL FOR SEPT. ISSUE SUBMISSIONS
