Today I am excited... to witness the vibrant colors surrounding me (consciously)! It is not just black nor white but also blue, green, red, yellow and many more.
From the moment we open our eyes wide as we wake up in the morning, a splash of the sun's yellow rays welcome us to another day filled with adventure, hope and purpose. You get out of bed, excited to do your usual chores and the clothes you put on may depict your mood, activity or level of comfort. Will it be an orange, brown or pink? Some would take hours in the mirror mix-matching clothes and colors that suit their skin tone. While some have a harder time deciding on what lip tint to use.
In our daily conversations, colors are frequently used and heard too. I catch people say "as black as coal," or "as red as blood," sometimes "as white as ghost," and "red carpet treatment" but always "see the world through rose-colored glasses."
The world we live in is also full of colors and in many ways, our decisions, reactions and thinking are affected by it. Red means stop. Green for go. Black signifies mourning.... and I know that your favorite color may be the exact tint of your flip-flops!
There are times, I am certain when you'd feel gray and blue. Whatever state you are in at this very moment, remember that things will come to pass whether you like it or not (thank heaven)! The rain will soon stop. The flowers along the meadow will eventually bloom. Things will starkly change if you put your trust in Him and make that first step for a better today.
Enjoy the rich colors around you and embrace every good thing happening not only today as we continue to learn to focus on what is beautiful, just and true!
