Hunting in Florida?

A warning sign that reflects where visitors dare not trend.

So you can imagine what fun it was to follow this truck recently on a major road in our city.

The Library Quilt show

As I mentioned yesterday, I had never noticed quilts hanging in this part of the library before. Next time I'm in, I will ask if this was a special display or permanent. Here are some of the quilts that denote scenes from our area.

 The Tampa area was noted for it's Cuban Cigar factories. It was a mainstay and employment for many immigrants who came to Tampa from Cuba back in the early 1900's.

 Plant City is known for it's amazing strawberries.

A funny thing happened....

on my way to the library.

You know, sometimes there are hidden gems that we miss even when we walk right past them. Case in point. I was at my local library recently and visited their book store. As I exited the store my eye caught sight of something that drew my attention. Can you guess what it was? If you guessed a quilt, you are right.  Now I know many libraries have quilts hanging, sometimes made by a guild for some specific reason. What caught my attention was not just one giant quilt on display, but a whole hallway lined with quilts.  Here are a few of them.

Bread for the Journey

"There are things only you can do, and you are alive to do them. In the orchestra we call life, you have an instrument and a song, and you owe it to God to play them both sublimely."
Max Lucado

For we are God's workmanship,
 created in Christ Jesus to do good works, 
which God prepared in advance for us to do. 
Eph 2:10 (NIV)
