Weekly Photo Challenge: Color

April 5, 2013

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!

What Color Is Peace?

November 12, 2012

Your thoughts, words and deeds are painting the world around you.  – Jewel Diamond Taylor –

I’m not overly political, I must admit and I’m taking no side in this post but this quote gave me pause for thought.  It seems I can’t pick up a paper, click on a website, or listen to television or radio without angry thoughts becoming angry words and deeds.

It is always somebody’s fault . . . or somebody else’s . . . does it matter in the end who the blame ultimately belongs to?  We are changing the world around us with fighting in the White House and fighting in the churches and fighting in the grocery store parking lot and the classrooms where our children learn . . .

Where’s it getting us?  What did our forefathers fight for?

What color is peace?
