Clutter with colour,
End up with beautiful art.
God planted a garden in Eden.
Then later said, "Consider the lilies.....Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these."
Embrace the contrast.
My colour is khaki.
It draws me.
I wear it, as I drive autumn country roads inhaling a cacophony of colour,
Intoxicating myself in God's garden.
Blessed by an intense and colourful daughter who has coloured my life.
And masterfully introduced me to art.
Up to whenever, my art was scapes.
Scenes that I could go to.
Now I can absorb a bit and enjoy.
God also said,
"Be still and know that I am God."
