The Palms of My Hands
  Picture Praise Photography by: Amanda du Plessis        



See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.

Isaiah 49:16


Our office away from home is a restaurant of a big Swedish furniture business: free coffee, a table to work on, and a world of interesting people. The veiled lady and her husband sat at the table next to us. I noticed the brown henna coloured designs painted on her hands. Gorgeous! I asked if I could take a picture. She was kind.

My name is ‘tattooed’ in the palm of a Big Hand and so is hers.

    Just have to laugh at your description of “a big Swedish furniture business.” We like that same business for an hour of free childcare as well as coffee!

      Great place!!! And the meals are not too expensive either. Good escape for a rainy, windy day with our daughter.
