A ruby red mosaic

We have a great little library here in Efrat. Everyone in our family of five can easily find lots of things that they enjoy reading there. We've lived in Efrat for over nine years, now, and yet I'm always in such a rush that I honestly don't remember noticing this mosaic outside its front door until just last week:
 
Isn't that pretty? I looked up the passage, and its taken from 2 Chronicles, 17:9 - They taught throughout Judea, taking with them the Book of the Law of the Lord. Considering that Efrat is located right here in the hills of Judea, it's a very well chosen passage for a library, I think :) And it's got enough red to qualify for Ruby Tuesday, so enjoy!

As always, feel free to click on the photo to get a better view. And do go to Mary's blog, Work of the Poet, for more red Ruby Tuesday entries. Happy Tuesday, everyone!

The colors of the hills and the fanciful rimonim (pomegranates) in the mosaic help me...Remember Jerusalem. (Couldn't resist plugging my own blog on yours!)

This is GORGEOUS! I always feel a little silly when I'm sure something has been right in front of my face for a while, but I LOVE the final discovery of said object, because then I tend to enjoy it more every time I look at it! Nice job--and what a "discovery" Happy Tuesday!

That is a beautiful mosaic and passage. You are fortunate you "found" this artwork. Now you will be able to enjoy it each time you visit the library. ;-)

Happy belated Ruby Tuesday!
