Selah…

Another week passes by and spring has now arrived. Creatively I have worked on the dreamy hexagon quilt making  border number four. I strip pieced carefully and really happy with the outcome.

design wall                                              detail

Now to join them and add to the centre panel and then one more border left , and all cut ready to go. I also cut out a quilt ready for the next one but I ned to start the red and white quilt challenge for the NSW Quilters Guild. I have a plan and a twist on a traditional quilted. Also working on the top down Swan’s Island sweater as well.

One thing grabbed my attention this week, and that was a word, Selah, 

selah

It’s one of those words that is allegedly difficult to translate from the hebrew but it seems to be translated as:

“stop and listen”

“pause, and think of that”

“stop and listen”

“pause and breathe”

There is a great expansion of the last one by Richard Rohr, however i think my copy has been lent out so will need to find it, Rob Bell follows a similar thread with  Nooma 14 “Breathe”. I will let the video say it all…

Pause, breathe, be present…
