Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

Gloom and glory go hand in hand.  Have you noticed?  It is midday where I sit yet the sun in just now beginning to shine outside my window.  As I approach the lamp and snap it off finally, I see more than a colorful lampshade.

  • I see reflected glory.
  • I see patriotism.  
  • I see Christian love.  
  • I see friendship.  

My pretty lamp was a gift from a friend as she packed up her home and prepared for deployment.  She is in the military.  At any moment she can  be sent to the center of a war-torn part of the world where she will serve willingly, lead and protect others, live surrounded by death, dying, and destruction.  Yet, my friend presents a calm spirit in the face of it all.  She sees life as full of beauty and color.  So, on this gloomy day, do I.  Thanks Lynn!

I present this to you in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge.  To participate, click here and read all about it.  The theme? Color!

    I’ll get one of these classic lamps for my home someday. I’ve always wanted one.
