My world too went colorless for a brief two days, after the cyclone: the flowers were all gone and the sky was grey, it was still drizzling.
But the next morning already, with the bright sun returnin, I looked at the sea and sky, all shining blue, I could only sigh with joy and say silently ‘Oh my, isn’t this just beautiful, those two vibrant shades of blue…’
And a week ago, one bougainvillea root broke up again through the sand, and shot up a small branch… with two bright colored flowers on it! Wow!!!
What if we lived in a colorless world,
shades of grey offering no relief.
Gone would be rainbows of promise,
floresta greens, fields of flowers
spreading their color as far as the
eye can see. Sunshine, twinkling stars
dotting the Milky Way, plumes of sweet
singing birds to delight, fish of every hue.
God filled Earth full of color, yet
many paint their world with moods of
grey, dripping tears of self-pity,
Its all about choice, you know.
Why not pick up your brush and
paint your life full of God’s
pallette of love. Sometimes life
is so simple that we do not believe
than it can be so easy.
