Looking for the right words and I need your help!
Image from A year from Oak Cottage.
A few weeks ago, my office was repainted in some welcoming and cheery colors: Spice, Plum and Realm. I found my paint at True Value from a color swatch card.
"Wow - that's it!" is what I stated when I opened the envelope at the color swatch card inside. Now this is what I'm looking for - only in a quote.
At the top of the wall I have a large blank section that I'd like to place a thoughtful quote upon. This is the one I was considering:
"And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." Micah 6:8
How would you respond walking into a space with that painted upon the wall? Would it feel welcoming? What is your first impression of that quote?
If you have any quote suggestions for this project, let me know. My goal is for the space to make those who enter feel welcome and safe. Let's see what we can discover together. When the work is done I'll post the pictures here.
Have a great Thursday and be sure to give me your suggestions!
