Pause for just a minute today as the weekend begins and soak up a little inspiration from our studio garden. 
Columbine hats dancing in the breeze.                 
Geranium buds lifting their heads with gratitude.
Stamens shouting praise. 
And pansy faces glowing bright with hope.
The details spinning around us in the garden are enough to make us dizzy!  Details, details, details ... everywhere!
Reminders of the delight God finds in the details of our livesHow amazing...the creator of this magnificent garden actually delights in us.  
Just listen to the way it's expressed in this ancient sentiment: 
"...God delights in every detail of our lives"  Psalm 37:23
 New Living Translation

Living in His delight,
The Velvet Lime Girls

Inhale Grace, Exhale Praise

A phrase from a song captured our hearts recently and when we glanced at this dogwood blossom with it's "heart" open wide, breathing in grace, and exhaling a "praise" of sorts with its outstretched petals, we just had to share it with you all! 

It beautifully captured the essence of what we hope our lives will be...beautiful displays of our Heavenly Father, living our lives with hearts open to Him, breathing in all of the Grace He gives and then pouring out a life of continual praise to Him through everything we do!

Inhale Grace, Exhale Praise,
The Velvet Lime Girls

"He taught me how to sing the latest God-song, 
a praise-song to our God."  
Psalm 40:3
