  • “Quit dragging your fishing pole,” I barked, and swatted my seven year old little brother across his cotton top. “What are you moping about anyhow?”
    Obviously something was eating little Heath. He usually gabbed the whole way to the fishing hole. When he finally looked up from between those slumped shoulders his lips were curled like he’d ate our tube of crickets. I thought he was going to spew. “You promise you won’t tell momma?” he gasped, fighting back tears.

  •  "...so he led them through the depths...And he saved them...."  Psalm  106:9,10

    Director, Quilt Museum
    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, May 26, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. It was a very nice fellowship day. We had lots of new books to look at and finding out how many more need our prayers.
    Next week we are cleaning the Museum of so much we don’t need. The kitchen is full of all kinds of stuff.  We’ll pull it all out and put the duplicates on the north porch and try to get rid of it.  More about that later.
