What are Your Happy Colors?


Big Beautiful Happy COLORS!


I remember an old hair product jingle from when I was a kid that sang  ‘Bryl-cream, a little dab’ll do ya”

Forget the dab. How about a splash?

A great big splash of BRIGHT BEAUTIFUL COLOR!

A splash of color will more than do ya.

Color surrounds us.  It is the first thing our eyes see when we look.

Blue skies, green grass, red roses, golden sand, gray skyscrapers, whatever landscape surrounds you, it is full of color.

Even going beyond our immediate vision, our vocabulary and how we speak is descriptive  with hues and shades.

We are “tickled pink” or we are “feeling blue“, and when we are down right sick, we become “green around the gills“.

Every swashbuckling knave knows that being called a “yellow-belly” is a “black-eye” to your reputation, and could make you so angry that you “see red

If after reading this post, you are still undecided about how color effects you, you will find yourself in a the”gray-zone” of opinion.

Oh the sheer glory of color all around us!

The very existence of color brightens up the darkest corners of our world, and it can brighten up you in your dark corners of your world too.

Sharing Some Borrowed Hope

 Every now and again, a little diddy will come across my desk that grabs me from the inside out.
Borrowed Hope has been around the internet a while, often reposted as a staple share of encouragement and well, hope.
Many sources list the author as “Unknown” but a site that takes its name from the first line’s plea, Lend Me Your Hope, identifies the author as Eloise Cole.

Feathery, Flouncy, Flummery, Flamboyant, Fanatical Flattery!

A silver tongued devil, sweet talker, smooth talker, snow job, smoozing, shoveling it on, and laying it on thick.

I won’t tell you how impacting Deborah Smith Pegues “3o Days to Taming You Tongue”   is because, today,  I doubt you are going to believe me.

LYING~ Never & Always Not the Worst Thing EVER



“Teachers often teach that which they need to learn themselves.
I am no different.
I am writing this book first and foremost for myself.
I desire a wholesome tongue,
one that always learns to speak what is pleasing to God.

I have learned what James the brother of Jesus,
meant when he said
“No man can tame the tongue”

Thirty Days of Tongue Taming

I imagine God rubbing his hands with delight, grinning from ear to ear

I would imagine that these words from my mouth thrill Him more than almost any others.

I picture God sitting on the edge of His throne, eagerly waiting for that
“Green light”
that I give when I mutter …

Hope for More than Just Surviving

“Just surviving” is a real place.
If you are finding yourself in that place where you are “trying to survive”, take heart, its ok.

If all you can do is get both feet out of the bed and onto the floor; you are already there.

You already are a survivor.

Sometimes, surviving is a breath at a time, and that, my friend, is ok,  too.

You qualify. You are a survivor.
Moment by moment, you are doing it.

You are surviving and that, in itself, is victory.
