Topic: Red (10/01/09)

TITLE: What I love about red

Some colors bring about hunger or sleepiness or an emotion. The sight of some colors can make you feel tired or excited, happy or sad. Color is important when we decide on our wardrobe, painting a kitchen, or even the food we order at a restaurant.
The color red means many things to many people. When I was a child the color red was not allowed in our wardrobe, because it was the color of “loose” women. To some, red is the color of anger, a color that indicates extreme irritation. Red is a stimulant; it excites people. When women want to wear a “power suit”, red is an effective choice, it exudes power, control and attracts attention.
To me the color red is the color of love. Not the love of Valentines Day, but the most amazing love of all. It’s the kind of love that surpasses all others, the love of my Lord. Red is the color of the blood he shed for me, the color that covers a multitude of sins. Red is not a color that is easily seen through, which is why it covers my sins. If I spill red cool-aid on my carpet, that stain is not coming out, red is there to stay, it is permanent. And so is God’s blood, it will always be there. Red is power, there is power in the blood of Jesus, the power to heal, the power to cover, the power to set free.
Red is an amazing color and I’m thankful for it, because when I see it, I see God.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the oolor red! I especially appreciated the last half of your piece where you talked about the blood of Jesus being permanent and sufficient to blot out our sins. My favorite line was: "Red is power, there is power in the blood of Jesus, the power to heal, the power to cover, the power to set free."

Short and sweet, like a mini-devotional.

For future weeks on the "color" theme, you don't really have to write about the topic--just use it in some significant way in a story or essay about...anything! I'd encourage you to stretch your creativity, and find new ways to approach the topic word.

I love many of the same things about red that you do! Thanks for this entry.
