The Power of Color

I had a fist-sized rock lodged firmly in the pit of my stomach. Too much work, too little time, too much anxiety. Suddenly while researching thumbnails of images for a freelance job, I ran across yellow.

A square of yellow filled with vines and leaves and butterflies. But mostly it was the yellow I saw. My spirit reacted immediately to the sunshine color. Stress was subdued, my brow unfurrowed itself, my soul softened.

I think in heaven there are colors beyond our wildest imagination, and they have more power than we know. Here on earth I can only taste a bit of the emotional impact that color has, and how it can unexpectedly make my soul respond and rejoice.

based on your post over at Jim's Blog (DN) i recommend that you read Wayne Dyer's book, The Power of Intention. You'll really like it.

Wait. Who are you on DN? I'm a tad slow sometimes. Thank you so much for the book recommendation - it's been recommended before, so I'm going to take that to heart now!

How true. What a great post to remind us of what awaits us in Heaven one day and the peace that God provides us while we wait. It's amazing that God created so many detailed things for us. He could have made this a black and white world, but He made it colorful... for us, and for His glory.
