"HEALING WATERS" This scarf came about in a surprising way! I was mixing the chemical solution before adding the Procion Mx dye. I put a teaspoon of "chemical" into each jar of water, as i prepared the dyes but it was not the "chemical" i thought i was using! When i saw what was in my hands, I realized I used PURE REFINED SEA SALT! I figured the Lord had a purpose for me doing this so I kept on going, using the Soda Ash, Softener, Urea, then each Pure dye. ( He has really been having me use PURE colors lately.) I believe the salt affected my colors of Turquoise and Blues becaue I ended up with more Green in the center! To me this looks like a churning river. I happened to be listening to Michelle Tumes singing "Healing Waters" as I was mixing the dyes and then when i ironed it dry i could see it looked like many Waters, so I named this "Healing Waters!"

"DIVINE REST" I let this set in the dyes quite a while and the colors merged into a beautiful Pattern.I really love the way the Pattern emerged with swirls in it. The Plum stands for Passion and Right relationship and the Blues stand for Spiritual Revelation.I feel the swirls are like the "Shekinah Glory" of God. The Reason it is called Divine Rest, is that in the Book of Hebrews, it says "there is a REST for the people of God. So Jesus, in HIS passion for us CALLS US into a place of Quiet Intimacy. But we can not even get near HIM without recognizing that HE did it all. There is no room for our own merits. When we quiet ourselves it is His joy to l share with us the Depths of His Mysteries. It is because of His vast Love that we in turn, respond to HIM in Love and Trust.
