WOB, RACHEL, DOUBLE CROSS BLOCK
We studied Rachel last week, in my Women of the Bible on-line study. In my block I used the darker blue to represent Jacob's sons. The deep rose represents Rachel and Leah, the struggling sisters. I used the light blue to symbolize the sky, after thinking about the question, what would it be like to go into labor while traveling, especially in those times.
I wonder if women of that time had so very little power that they resorted to trickery to have some small control of their own lives. Then again, the men used trickery too. There's so much deception in this story!
