and green for our logo. They turned out to be a big signature of who we are. Then, we just picked them because we liked them.
Now....... we know the rest of the story and how God's hand was in the selection.
Thank you Kelley Harrington for these beautifully written words.
Green & Blue - with just a touch of purple
Over a year ago when I first met Kay, she began sharing with me about the vision God had given her for Girlfriends God's Way. I mentioned that I thought it was very interesting that they had chosen the colors Green & Blue to be used in our Girlfriends God's Way logo, gatherings, gifts, cards, etc. I shared with her how the color Green represents Life and Blue represents the Word of God. I also pointed out that it was interesting that the main colors - green and blue - support the heartbeat of Girlfriends God's Way -
"Girlfriends" exists to filter our lives (Green) through God's Word (Blue).
Green and Blue are very calming colors. Some counselors and doctors have painted their offices green and/or blue, which they have found helps people feel more relaxed, calm, and peaceful. I also think of God's natural surroundings in a pasture or in the woods - how it displays God's color of green - or a body of water, such as a lake, stream, ocean, etc - how it beautifully reflects the color blue. People tend to feel peace and tranquility in the woods or by the water, as they are surrounded by God's green and blue calming nature of His creation.
Psalm 23:2 says it wonderfully: "He makes me to lie down in green pastures and leads me besides the still waters (blue) - He restores and refreshes my soul."
Recently we added just a touch of the color purple, representing Royalty - to remind us that we ourselves and each of our precious ladies are God's Royal daughters - full of immeasurable value and worth!
So we have fun - skillfully and creatively using Girlfriends' colors of blue and green (with a just a touch of purple) in a variety of ways, knowing we are surrounding our precious ladies with colors that promote feelings of well being, peace, tranquility, safety, and value, as God's Spirit refreshes and restores their soul, so they come to know more and more their precious value in Him !!
"Our lives (green) gradually become brighter and more beautiful
as God (blue) enters our lives
and we become like Him (purple)." -
