A Bit Of Me Mixed With A Bit Of You

I remember when I was a child, how I loved my coloring books - there was no greater pleasure, aside from reading a book, that any activity gave to me.

I'd spend hours outlining each part of the page, then carefully coloring it in, and once I'd finish with one lovely picture, I'd find another to begin.

I remember that I always tried to find the most interesting colors in the box - not just 'blue' or 'red' or 'purple' for me - no it had to be 'lavender-blue' or 'cherry red' or 'royal purple' - only these mixtures were the ones for me.

Even when I had no book of pictures, Id use plain paper and make up my own - Id make a scribbled design with a pencil, outlining each shape with black and color in the most beautiful stained glass window ever known.

It reminded me of my life before I knew you, before Jesus came and lit up my heart, I'd carefully fill in each shape of my day, but I could never finish it I was so discouraged from the start.

I didn't know why the pictures never turned out, I'd tried so hard to make them just so, but the most important thing of all was the one thing I didn't know.

There came a time when I threw down my crayons, ready to give up on it all; at that very moment Jesus was there by my side, He'd heard my heart's desperate call.

Jesus saved my life, He transformed my heart, showed me what I needed to know, and threw out all the old coloring books, and replaced my old crayons with ones that had His glow.

He taught me how to color my days with the blue of hope, the red of joy, the pure white of peace - and gave me a pad of blank paper to use, for now the pictures He gave would never cease.

Each part of my day was outlined with His grace, the colors so pure and bright, it was as if each picture, once done by my hand, was sprinkled over with His forgiving grace.

The day finally came when God let me know that single colors were no longer the ones for me to use, for He had in mind to make me complete by adding the colors of you.

Oh what joy was mine when we first met, for I know God directed that meeting
from above; and my heart knew right from the very first moment, that you would fill my life with your love.

Suddenly all the colors of my world were filled with mixtures of two, for every one was a reflection of our love, a bit of me mixed with a bit of you.

Now we both color our days, each day making a design fresh and new drawing our own stained glass beautiful hours, filled with love and joy so true.

I thank God each day that the colors are endless, that each day we discover them anew, for each day brings another wonderful collection of ways to show how much I love you!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
