The Color Of Love

….and The Biblical Meaning Of Colors. Enjoy The Music Of Billy Ocean’s The Colour of Love

 


Though love is thought of in many shades, no one can depict the actual color. From the beginning of time, dawn awakes; I watch in awe of its spectacular wonder. Is that the color of love?

The day progresses and I look at the shades of blue in the sky. Oddly, no one has ever painted that same hue but do we love the color. Is that, in fact, the color of love?

In the culmination of day, the lazy sun sets over the pristine waters. Humbly we sit and watch the shades, different though from dawn’s early light. Holding hands on a park bench, reverently we kiss goodnight, and there the sun slips off into another horizon. Is this the color of love?

It’s a beautiful thought to depict a color that resembles love…perhaps in the peace of a forest as a mother feeds her fawn or an orchid of flowers living in harmony. Or is it that soulmate that finds their way back? And moreover, what if it’s a gift from God you hold in your hands that fills your heart as you share it with thousands?

The Color of Love

Love…an indescribable flavor, an aphrodisiac to your spirit that only God controls. But to come up with a color, is it the hint you receive from another’s world as they let you in? Does the color come from the tints of earth? Or the oceans resting on its sandy shores? Or from the heavens high above, now coming to a close as they too are resting in shades of pastels? That moment when life below and above greets the present. If it’s only for a minute or so in time, the color of love is unequal.

Saying a prayer, it’s only our Father in heaven that could bring this all together; the romance of the sun and the moon that dance together. A million miles apart, they restore our faith for tomorrow looks promising from where I stand. I pray your color of love outweighs the world and all its foes for nothing could compare to God’s gracious color of love……

The Last Dance

God watches the intentions that connects the spirits of the heart and instills hope….


The Last Dance 1

With best intentions, my integrity precedes and daily obligations manifest. Never would I ever believe the twists and curves I’ve been through. My life has now led me down a path of heaven’s way. From the gates of hell to the silver reflections as oceans wash ashore, God has certainly protected the innocence of my heart.

With riches from gifts that cannot be assessed, blessings pour from my writing hand to yours. Wanting to do my best for readers to share, my wealth now lies in God’s hands. In all the years of tribulations and trials, only a couple of bright spots exist in my mind – my son and daughter. My life appears as a child’s chapter story book. And I know many of you can relate.

The Last Dance 4

God watches the intentions that connects the spirits of the heart and instills hope. Though we wait in frustration, our souls hold on to faith. He allows our tough times to happen to test out our dreams before He gives us our gift. It is against all logic that He then places certain people in our lives to carry out His purpose. How can one not be in awe of His works??

 

As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
~ Isaiah 55:9

 

Personally, in my eleventh hour, hell appeared to be an avalanche of no escaping. Miraculously, God heard my dreams that rang out years before. Saving the best for last, as an old Philco of songs we knew every word to, she waltzed back in for the final dance. A Scandinavian blond, with babes in hand, brushed my conscience with her poise and presence. The embryo of unforgotten love was held on to as the years moved onward.

The Last Dance

 

As seasons gray and gravity plays games, 20/20 reminisces with bifocals. But the band still plays our favorite tunes. Now embraced, I’m dancing my last years with her! Cheek to cheek, looking into teary eyes, I see dreams of fulfillment.

 

The Last Dance 2

 

Pray for your dreams and hopes and see what happens. Share it with me – I would love to hear your story! For it is He that now controls my destiny and yours too. What an awesome God we all serve!

And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.
~ Matthew 21:22

 


Related Verse:

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
~ Ephesians 3:20-21

Code of Ethics

It is where our Lord holds us close and we pray that believing in Him is the right way of life.


 

Code of Ethics 3

 

Looking back to my younger years , I never understood life. Why do trees blow in the direction of the wind? Why do the leaves turn in the autumn chill? Why does the sun rise in the east in the early morn? My mother tried to explain that it was the way God intended, long before I was born. I guess she was right. I never questioned what she said, although I never understood. But it was actually the principles of life that she was trying to preach.


 

2 Peter 1: 3

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence

 


I grew up fast after Pop passed. Life changed for us. My brother and I never agreed on anything. Respect was a word that was hardly heard but I learned early there was a code. A code to follow…be it God, family, or honoring those you love. But it came with a price. We showered our feelings over the hurts we endured.

All of us learn early in life, somehow, there is a code of ethics we must follow. It is where our Lord holds us close and we pray that believing in Him is the right way of life. We give our hearts to Him as He is our Savior. It gives us direction.

 

Code of Ethics

 

Honoring the past and looking forward to the future, we praise our parents and teach the future generations that God is the common denominator of respect. Humbly we give praise…it is our way of life.

God’s eloquence sustains life for all his creations. I’m humbled by His magnificent beauty and shutter at His presence. We give thanks before we partake. Remember, if it wasn’t for His ever presence in our lives, we would remain in the absence of His grace.

 

Code of Ethics 2

 

 

Let us worship His name!

 

 

 


 

 

Heal Our World With Kindness

“….make it a better place for you and for me” (lyrics by Michael Jackson)
and Random Acts of Kindness


 


Galatians 5:22-23:

“but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…”

 

Reflecting on this day God made, a unison of love and respect played a major part. I thought about my accomplishments and those who I tried to make feel special. I made an elderly gentleman smile because I was early. By the size of his grin, it came from his heart. I replied with a smile from mine too.

You see it doesn’t take much to change the world – a helping hand, a smile, a thoughtful gesture – and your day is made. Now that you made someone else feel special “pass it on”. Don’t break the chain! God so loved so we can as well. To make God smile today should be your goal.

 

Let’s thank God for such a lovely day. Like a meteorologist, tomorrow will be much the same, a chance of showers in the forecast. I’ll pray the sun shines on you. God bless those who seek to do their best. God bless those who walk in His love!

My heart is full, my spirit content. God please grant all my friends the joy I send. Like a store-bought card, I send my heartfelt feelings to all.

 


Heal our world

Spread some kindness today:

Give a dollar to a homeless person
Hold a door for someone.
Help someone carry their groceries
Give flowers to an elderly person
Share a book that changed your life
Tell your loved ones how much you love them
Stop judging others. Everyone is fighting their own battles.
Be an inspiration today – Smile
Hug often
Talk to someone new
Be the one to shift the negative conversation.
Pay someone a genuine compliment every day.
Bring your neighbors’ trash cans from the end of their driveway up to their garage.


Psalm 16:11

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

 

When The Morning Comes

May your heart touch someone personally today…


 

Dawn is still asleep, the Earth is tranquil. God has spread His peace over the Earth. I sit in the calm and quietly wait.

When The Morning Comes

Many words are written about dates and times when Christ will appear to us all. I, like you, wonder when or if it will be in our lifetime. But today a sense of serenity came like an invited guest. Instead of stress, a peace now dwells within my heart. My love pours out to all my friends…some I know, some I haven’t met yet. But we are all connected to heaven in one fashion or another.

So I write this message like to inscribe –

In The Nectar of Time

In The Nectar of Time 2


And on the seventh day, God made time for the heavens to rest, receiving the Earth. I struggle out into the bright sunshine; the shades were drawn. Reaching for a cup of rejuvenation, I open the door to take my post. Commanding life as it were, the peace and love has come this morning.

Quietly tending to my thoughts, a visitor with flapping, iridescent wings swarms above me to join in on the aroma. Sitting on the ledge enjoying its nectar, we seem to have a lot in common.

Reflecting on my life like a vase of wilted roses, we were two ships in the night. We never knew God had blessed the curse of our introduction. Now a lifetime later, old and weary, our hearts have reunited. Like a tiny bud emerging, our world has blossomed overnight. My quiet is interrupted as I smell the essence of the past…a sprinkle of stardust from years long gone.

In The Nectar of Time 4
With a hint of wind and a lot of sun, love grows. God has made this day for us to enjoy. I’ll hold your hand and relish in your presence as the nectar of love is revealed in romance. Only God knew our paths were lined with the effervescence from Eden.

Alone I wait for my little hummingbird to meander into the morning light. She will greet me with a kiss on my forehead and I’ll be christened with her love. Like the nectar of the seasons, you have brought me such joy. I pray to God with all the reverence my heart contains, that every day I will wake with the nectar to you.

In Thge Nectar of Time
My budding flower – like an old stem stuck in water, has begun to come alive. Taking root, like a Lily pad, the butterflies surround you. I merely sit by the edge of the pond and reflect on the nectar gone. Thankful for God to light my way, I cast my prayers upon you. I taste my thoughts, pollen is abound, my life complete.

As I reminisce, I only wish you knew the number of vases I would have filled for you if only God had not waited. But as always, His timing has a purpose, that I will never doubt. For now I have the nectar I lost, and I’ll never forget God’s grace.
