Page Four GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 2018 By Angie Land Heart Matters The parable of the Prodigal Son is perhaps one of the most familiar stories in the Bible. It has long been the focus of many Sunday School lessons and sermons about how Gods forgiveness is waiting for a person who has strayed from their faith, if only they will return to Him. This message is without a doubt THE message of the Bible. God absolutely wants those far from Him to know that He loves them and longs for them to return. And yet, Jesus told this story for another purpose. It seems that a group who considered themselves very close to God had a problem with how Jesus was spending His time: Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying This man received sinners and eats with them. (Luke 15:1-2) The Pharisees and scribes were the religious leaders of the day, tending to all things spiritual. They knew which prayer to say when, which i to dot and t to cross. They knew the answers to the hard questions about what was right or wrong, and they worked hard to get it right. So, it is easy to understand their frustration when Jesus shows up and spends most of his time hanging out with sinners. In true fashion, Jesus answered their complaint with a series of parables. This time about a lost sheep, a lost coin and a lost son. With the lost sheep and lost coin, He points out the desire to something that was lost. We can anything necessary and valuable after an exhaustive search. In fact, the sheep and the coin had this in common: both were found by someone diligently searching. But then we come to the prodigal. Take a closer look at the story in Luke 15:1124. Something was lost, something is found, and then a celebration follows. Much like the sheep and coin, except the prodigal found his way back to the Father. We often miss that because the music is loud and the feast is joyous. But then we hear a complaint. The older brother who has stayed at home and taken that his wayward brother has come home. After all, he has been the one working hard to take care of everything while he was off having fun. Sound familiar? The Pharisees and scribes sound a lot like older brothers. Many of us may relate to how the older brother and the religious leaders felt. Maybe we have felt the to do the right thing while others seem to be having such fun doing the wrong things. What changes everything here is the view of the Father about those right things. Is doing the right thing checking off the list or checking with the Fathers heart? Yes, the younger brother wasted his portion, but the portion that was left consumed all the older brothers time and energy. He was taking care of his inheritance, when perhaps his father wished he would go look for his brother. Isnt that what Jesus did? He came looking for us, and I am so thankful. Jesus message to the religious leaders was subtle but clear. Our inheritance from our Father is eternal life. It is a gift and cannot be earned by working hard to do everything right. Gods heart is that we value it enough to search for those far away from Him and celebrate being found. Because every heart matters. New Hope Baptist Church 4470 NW CR-236 P. O.

Submitted Elaine Nemeth, a frequent visitor to Hawaii over many years who moved to Gilchrist County in 2001, will be showing samples and sharing designs for making Hawaiian quilts at Trentons Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival on March 17, 2018. Hawaiian quilting has evolved into a distinctive quilting style. Its major characteristics include whole cloth appliqu of symmetrical designs that lines of echo quilting, and a focus on individualized designs. Hawaiians learned to quilt from missionaries who arrived in the early 1800s. Native Hawaiians adapted quilting to incorporate local spiritual the islands, and to take into account the limited availability of fabrics. For example, traditional Hawaiian quilts had only two solid colors; usually a bright single fabric appliqu on a light-colored background. They used only white thread because that was all that they had. The designs are highly meaning. Some quilters say their designs are inspired in their dreams. One writer noted that Hawaiians dried their quilts turned over upside down. First, this preserved the fabric color, and second, it hid the design. The designs are made by carefully folding the cloth multiple times (typically eight times), and then cutting the fabric like you would to and arrange the design onto the backing is one of the critical stages to making a Hawaiian quilt. It often takes several people working together to accomplish this for a large project. Since Hawaiian quilts are hand stitched, the projects often represent a major commitment by the quilter. It is not unusual for it to take 5-10 years to complete a large bedspread. Skilled Hawaiian quilters appliqu with disappearing or hidden stitches. Elaine suggests quilting with a milliners needle; one that is long and skinny, and that is used in hat making. Modern Hawaiian quilts use multicolored fabrics, but still use motifs from nature and whole cloth appliqu. They are more often framed and hung as artworks in contemporary settings. Traditionally, one never sat on a Hawaiian quilt. It was considered disrespectful to its maker and owner. Elaine will talk with festival visitors about Hawaiian quilting at her location in front of Cherrys Restaurant on the east side of Main Street; opposite the Florida Quilt Museum. She will have handouts of three simple Hawaiian quilt designs (Beauty of America (based on daisies and ferns), Staghorn, and Breadfruit) and will illustrate the steps for making Hawaiian quilts. For quilters who want to learn more, she suggests the website poakalani.net featuring the designs of John Serrao. The twelfth annual Trentons Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival, Floridas only outdoor quilt show and sale, will be held Saturday, March 17, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the picturesque town of Trenton, Florida. Quilts will hang from shops, businesses and government buildings on Main Street and beyond.

Due to the current economic conditions, we are asking for your help and support to ensure no child is left standing in the sale ring hearing RESALE. We are diligently soliciting any and all funds available through our local businesses and generous residents of Gilchrist County. Please see the following breakdown for this years show: Gilchrist Exhibitors Feeders: 18 Fat Steers: 12 Swine: 74 Wethers: 7 As you can see, there is a major obligation to Gilchrist County to provide Buyers on behalf of our children. Over the past several years, two or three individuals have gone around door to door, doing mail-outs and making phone calls on behalf of our children. Their dedication to this community and our children is much appreciated. It has always been the philosophy of the Boosters to try to support ANY and ALL children in need from Gilchrist County. This year, in order to ensure the success of the fair boosters, we need your help. We are currently out raising money and the fair is quickly approaching. For Gilchrist County Fair Boosters to be able to move forward and continue to aid each child in need, we feel the need to employ your help. This year, again, due to the current state of the economy, we are requiring exhibitors and/or family members to assist the Booster Club in raising money. For you (or your child) to have the Booster Club consider bidding on your animal, you must raise at least the minimum amount as follows: Fat Steer: $ 100.00 Feeder Steer: $ 75.00 Swine: $ 50.00 Wethers: $ 50.00 Please understand the Booster Club is in no way trying to exclude anyone from receiving assistance, but your help is needed to enable us to continue to purchase animals for Gilchrist County exhibitors. If you already have buyers lined up for your animal, you do not have to participate in the fund-raising efforts. Finding your own Buyers is highly encouraged as the Booster Club is not able to purchase everyones animal. Please contact one of the boosters below with questions, comments or to turn in your collec tion. Thank you for your time and attention. We look forward to hearing from you.
