Radiance All Around

"Having a purple and teal kind of day with the rain coming in..."  Her status read, completed by a photo of her eyes simply adorned with some beautifully unexpected shades of these hues. 

I have a friend who thinks in color.  Brilliant colors, swirled together; color all around her.  She sees it wherever she goes.  When she needs to talk to God, she paints.  Once I suggested she may enjoy journaling her prayers, as I do.  She stared long at me.  "Hmmm....I'm not one to sit down and write."

"But crocheting prayers?  That I could do." 

And she does.  She gets out her hook and yarn, sits a spell and talks with her Savior.  And when she is finished, there in her lap is a glorious piece of art.

When the rain is coming down...what do you see?  Do you see the gray lines streaming, one after another; drippy wet soaking the already sogged earth?  Do you see the fact that you need an umbrella, and where did you have it last anyway?  Does your mind frantically run to figure out which plans for the day are altered or even canceled?

Or do you see teal and purple?  Do you get out the brush and swirl together the possibility of what colors can be made of all that glorious rain?  Are you able to see the unexpected color in an otherwise soggy day?

"Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking."  ~Ezekiel 1:28

See God's glory today.  It's all around you.  Sit a spell with Him and see what He creates in and through you.

Enjoy today,
