“pack up the babies and grab the old ladies and everyone goes………...’cause everyone knows”
……..take my hand……………….Hallelujah………..Hallelujah………………….
(I will pause here, to allow you, my followers to put on some Neil Diamond. I like to listen to it loud. smiling. However, I am sure you have your own way of “getting down” to the beat. ha)
Similar to the masses, gathering up supplies, people and moving towards, “Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show”, I sure wish there would be the same interest in the library.
You heard me. I wish that libraries and books generated as much enthusiasm as a “get saved” show.
Oh, I know not nearly as magnetic, or popular. No where near as loud. No gospel beat, pounding in the background.
Can you find salvation at the library? You bet.
Can you find books about good gospel music and Neil Diamond? Yes, again.
Can you find books about quilting or dogs or healing naturally? Make that a big fat, yes!
Reach out your hand…………….walk with me this day………….
I had ordered amazing, jaunty elephant material. Soft and stable by Annie’s for the strength and stabilizer for between the outer fabric and fabulous teal lining. I used a piece of stunning braid I found in Alabama. I wanted to sew all the good karma and goodness I could into this one bag.
I warmed up the sewing machine and turned up the music.
Brand new, freshly sewn, with the perfect pocket for library cards. Padded handles and reinforced seams to hold the weight of all those good books.
All the cool kids are reading.
Honestly, I want a huge stampede to the ragged tent, I mean the brand new, brick and mortar building. Grab a book or two or ten.
A new Library book bag!
Can I get a Hallelujah?
