|November 2011||Cast your cares upon the Lord & He will sustain you;... Psalm 55:22||Subscribe to Healing Hearts News!!|
...From the Editor
I’m sure that many of you were anxiously awaiting this edition of Healing Hearts News as much as we were struggling to figure out how best to get it published. There was some talk about combining the November and December issues but we changed out minds and decided to create a condensed November issue and then put all our best material in the December issue next month.

Another thought on a different subject, as more families are using e-mail and finding “spam” to be a greater and greater problem, more of us are using filters in order to keep their inboxes uncluttered. I definitely understand the need for this but need to ask a favor. If you are currently receiving your newsletters via e-mail and are using a filtering service, please make sure to include us on your “friends” list so that your newsletter messages won’t be blocked. The e-mail address we have used to send newsletters from is email@example.com. Thanks for your help.
Saving for a Rainy day
...Future Printing Equipment
With an eye to the future, we at Healing Hearts started thinking and planning for our possible growth and the options for keeping the newsletter presses rolling.
We currently own the printing equipment that's used each month. The machine that we are using is still in great shape even after using it for the past several years and should keep right on chugging for several more to come.
But like any machine, some day it will either have to be replaced or another option for printing considered. If we buy new replacement equipment it is our thought that growth will mean that the replacement will need to be up to a greater volume of print and the cost will likely be the same or more than our original investment for the current printer.
With all of this in mind, we have decided to set up a fund to start saving money for our future publishing needs—whether for new equipment or other printing option—so that Healing Hearts News will be able to continue. The goal amount we have in mind is $15,000.
So...if you choose to sponsor an issue of Healing Hearts News as mentioned above, a portion of the money will be set aside in the printer fund for this purpose. Donations directly to the printer fund will also be accepted. Just include a separate note with your payment payable to Healing Hearts to let us know that you would like to support Healing Hearts in this way. The donation button found on the Healing Hearts web site can also be used to donate to the fund. Just put 'Printer Fund' in the comment section of the checkout form on the Paypal site.
