"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

Making a Mizrach, Part Three

This is Part Three in my "Making a Mizrach" series.  Parts One and Two are directly below.

So now my Mizrach has two letters, the letters mem-zayin.  Together, these letters spell out the syllable, "miz."

My friend Katherine gets all the credit for my correct, cursive Hebrew zayin.  The zayin is made with a curve; all the other letters can be made with strips.  For the life of me, I could not figure out how to make one.  Katherine, you might surmise from her name, is not Jewish at all, and has no Hebrew knowledge.  However, she is much craftier, and much more spatial, than I am.  Knowing this, I posed the problem to her.  She suggested cutting a shape out of paper, pinning that to cloth, and then cutting the cloth.

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
