141. Colors are the smiles of nature. ~Leigh Hunt

Of all God’s gifts to the sighted man,
color is the holiest, the most divine, the most solemn.
~John Ruskin


To the sighted man color is emphatically holy, but I believe the sanctity of it goes deeper than the eye.  Deep within the human soul color is recognized as tidings from the Father of our world and the message is twofold.  Color is a hallowed melody meant not just for the eyes but for the ears as well.  Pablo Picasso touched on this when he asked, “Why do two colors, one put next to the other, sing?” He couldn’t explain it nor can I, but there are color combinations that compose the sweetest of songs.  Pink and blue is one of those duos, and together they pen a heavenly harmony reminiscent of sapphire skies streaked with luscious pink ribbons of light.

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice.  ~Psalm 97:1  ✝

  2. I sometimes wonder how life would be if I all of a sudden I would loose my eyesight? To be deaf isn’t that bad in our noisy world, I guess, but then I wouldn’t be able to listen to our owls anymore…

  3. Oh, I wouldn’t want to lose any of my senses. So much of life’s goodness comes to us through them. We don’t have any owls that I know of but I sure would miss the sound of the songbirds that visit my yard, and I’d be brokenhearted if I could no longer see the glorious offerings in the garden. Enjoy your owls and Lespedeza. Blessings, Natalie
