Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, so I thought I’d create a bright and fun scripture inspired spring color palette to honor the occasion.
About the Scripture:
This week the scripture that has inspired this color palette is Proverbs 31:10-31:
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
For all you ladies out there who view the Proverbs 31 woman as a good role model (as well you should) take notice of the punchline in verse 30. This woman who seems to have it all balanced and together fears the Lord above all. This is the first (and most important) step to being a virtuous woman.
About the Spring Color Palette:
This color palette is pulled from a photo of tulips and butterflies (the perfect combination for Mother’s Day). Unlike a lot of spring color palette options out there, this one isn’t derived from pastels, but rather from bright pops of pink and purple with a splash of bright green. It contains a beautiful combination of colors which is sure to stand out, just like mom’s tend to do in their children’s lives.
So I hope this spring color palette will inspire you this Mother’s Day in whatever projects you’re working on. If you end up using it for anything, please post a link in the comments, I’d love to see!
