Blue, my favorite color.
Blues are what I see in the fields surrounding my house this time of year. Every year, God brings me blue and I stop to notice amidst my comings and goings, speeding away in my car with one more round of speech and debate,
hurried breakfasts and quick cups of tea and coffee,
late night talks, sharing secrets on beds,
Blue, every day, no matter what is going on, He is there, painting,
creating His art,
speaking to me words of comfort and grace-
will I see Him? Hear Him today, amidst my own agenda?
Today, I will pause for the blue He has taken such pains to paint for my pleasure.
