Breathe Shawl

by c-mama

While crocheting this shawl I kept hearing a song by Leonard Jones called “Holding Your Breath” found on Morningstar’s “Coming out of Egypt” album.

The words are:
Out of darkness You brought forth light
Out of nothing You commanded the night

Holding Your breath
Out of Your words You made the worlds
Out of play You took a son for Yourself
Holding Your breath

Kneeling down
Breathing out
Face – to – face
Your embrace

Out of the dust you created my heart
From the earth You brought form unto my soul
Out of your spirit you breathed in new life
Breathe into us again!

Breathe into us, Lord!
We’re turning blue.

Out of touch I have run too fast
Coming back I return to you at last
Holding Your breath.

So kneeling down
I breathe in
Face – to – face
Your embrace

Out of the dust you created my heart
From the earth you brought form unto my soul
Out of your spirit you breathed in your life
Breathe into us again!

Na – na -neo
Na – na – neo pneuma
Na – na – neo

I added the following scripture to the card on the shawl as I felt this is what the Lord wanted to communicate to whoever this shawl is for:
Genesis 2:7 – the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
Psalm 33:6 – By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
Psalm 150:6 – Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
John 20:22 – And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”

I made this shawl out of Lion Brand Homespun in Mediterranean. Lion Brand describes the yarn color, “‘Painterly’ color The colors of a Grecian hillside — dusty olive and warm tans.” I used an N hook and adapted this pattern. It measures about 22″ x 76″.
