Sarah Burton


Wearing a halo crown of Regina and her Sarah Burton sewn bridal gown, Kate Middleton arrives at Westminster Abbey to the words of Psalm 122 sung in a hymn.  Beautiful.

A Singer sewing machine for Christchurch whanau is being shared on this blog today as well to celebrate the journey of a rebuilding effort in this city.

Psalm 122 are the words penned by King David, the Psalmist shepherd poet-king of Israel. Lyrics are as follows in Chinois, English and Te Reo Rangatira of New Zealand (the language of Chiefs). In a way, these timeless poetic words are Kate Middleton’s spiritual train (so to speak), that will outlast a hand sewn garment.

詩 篇 122 (Chinese Union Version (Traditional))

詩 篇 122

 1( 大 衛 上 行 之 詩 。 ) 人 對 我 說 : 我 們 往 耶 和 華 的 殿 去 , 我 就 歡 喜 。

 2耶 路 撒 冷 啊 , 我 們 的 腳 站 在 你 的 門 內 。

 3耶 路 撒 冷 被 建 造 , 如 同 連 絡 整 齊 的 一 座 城 。

 4眾 支 派 , 就 是 耶 和 華 的 支 派 , 上 那 裡 去 , 按 以 色 列 的 常 例 ( 或 譯 : 作 以 色 列 的 證 據 ) 稱 讚 耶 和 華 的 名 。

 5因 為 在 那 裡 設 立 審 判 的 寶 座 , 就 是 大 衛 家 的 寶 座 。

 6你 們 要 為 耶 路 撒 冷 求 平 安 ! 耶 路 撒 冷 啊 , 愛 你 的 人 必 然 興 旺 !

 7願 你 城 中 平 安 ! 願 你 宮 內 興 旺 !

 8因 我 弟 兄 和 同 伴 的 緣 故 , 我 要 說 : 願 平 安 在 你 中 間 !

 9 因 耶 和 華 ─ 我 們   神 殿 的 緣 故 , 我 要 為 你 求 福 !

 1 I rejoiced with those who said to me,
   “Let us go to the house of the LORD.”
2 Our feet are standing
   in your gates, Jerusalem.

 3 Jerusalem is built like a city
   that is closely compacted together.
4 That is where the tribes go up—
   the tribes of the LORD—
to praise the name of the LORD
   according to the statute given to Israel.
5 There stand the thrones for judgment,
   the thrones of the house of David.

 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
   “May those who love you be secure.
7 May there be peace within your walls
   and security within your citadels.”
8 For the sake of my family and friends,
   I will say, “Peace be within you.”
9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
   I will seek your prosperity.

Psalm 122

 1He waiata; he pikitanga. Na Rawiri. I koa ahau i ta ratou meatanga mai ki ahau; Tatou ka haere ki te whare o Ihowa.

    2E tu ana o matou waewae ki ou tatau, e Hiruharama:

    3Ko te hanganga o Hiruharama, rite tonu ki to te pa kua tuhonohonoa ki a ia ano..

    4Haereere ana ki reira nga iwi, nga iwi o Ihowa, ki to Iharaira whakaaturanga, ki te whakawhetai ki te ingoa o Ihowa.

    5Kua whakaturia hoki ki reira nga torona whakawa, nga torona o te whare o Rawiri.

    6Inoia he ata noho mo Hiruharama: ka whiwhi ki te pai te hunga e aroha ana ki a koe.

    7Kia mau te rongo ki ou taiepa, me te pai ki ou whare kingi.

    8He mea mo oku teina, mo oku hoa, taku e mea nei, Kia mau te rongo ki roto ki a koe.

    9He whakaaro ki te whare o Ihowa, o to tatou Atua, ka rapu ahau i te pai mou.

Today, I asked a friend what should I blog about. They said, anything you want to, just make sure you cover off what Michelle Obama wore to The State Dinner – because everyone who is anyone is talking about it.

Fashion – Writes The Style List –”First Lady Michelle Obama wore a red petal-print silk organza Alexander McQueen gown for Wednesday’s state dinner in Washington, DC. The dinner was held to honor China in the presence of its president, Hu Jintao.

The dress was created by Sarah Burton, who succeeded McQueen at his fashion house following the designer’s death almost one year ago. Mrs. Obama’s choice of red was widely seen as a recognition of the color’s connection to the symbolism of happiness and prosperity in Chinese culture.”
