There are not more than five primary colors,
yet in combination they produce
more hues than can ever been seen.
We live, breath, and move on holy ground, and life’s experiences come to us by means of our God-given senses. Nature and its colors don’t just surround us like the walls of a house or a building; they move into our space and through our senses touching us in very discernible and meaningful ways.
The laws of color are unutterably beautiful
because they are not accidental.
~Vincent Van Gogh
Terry T. Williams said that “All life is holy and daily prayers are delivered on the lips of (blue) breaking waves, the whispering of (green) grasses, and the shimmering of (autumn) leaves. I believe these prayers of which he spoke are real and meant to bring us into intimacy with the Lord, the singular and ancient author of the excellences we’ve been given like these beautiful rain lilies.
All the other colors are just colors,
but purple seems to have a soul?
When you look at it,
it’s looking back at you.
Nothing has life apart from God, and if we want to look for and find Him, we must start where He dwells and seek what He values. Colors, like these of the passionflower, as well as angelic hosts, miracles, and God’s grace, are the unmistakably visible and tangible elements emitted by Creation’s many sacred voices.
…for God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. ~Romans 11:29 ✝
