TITLE: Yellow, the Color of Joy

When I think of yellow, I automatically think of a bright fluorescent color; that shines through the darkest hour. Just as the color blue describes oneís feelings of emotional distress, the color yellow can represent an emotional uplift; that engages in pure delight. A form of sunshine; bright, awakening light that shines through oneís emotions, bringing forth a sense of spiritual awakening.
If I had to describe the joy of the Lord by color, the description would be that of bright yellow, with a never ending glow; because of the brightness that it brings to oneís heart.
If I had to associate the peace of God with a color, the color association of Godís peace, would be yellow. Though bright as the sun that shines through the clouds, the color yellow also has a calming effect that could associate with the peace of God. The peace of God brings a spirit of calmness that passes all understanding. When the stress of this life gets you down, look up, watch the sunset, see the beautiful golden yellow skies settling through the clouds; Oh what a peaceful sight. Oh what a delight. The earth seems to be at rest during a sunset; this is what makes the sight of a sunset so peaceful, and calm. Looking up to those golden yellow skies gives me a sense of comfort, and security.
If I were to describe my emotional state right now, I would have to say that I am yellow; because, I feel blessed, inspired, uplifted, bright, and shining for the Lord. The joy of the Lord is on my life.
When you are feeling down, and blue, allow a ray of bright yellow sunshine to come through. Think of something that brings you joy, happiness, and gleam. The situation is not as bad as it seem. Get up, awaken from your distress. Remember God wants for you His best. Think of the joy of the Lord, a bright, happy color yellow, and the peace of God, that is oh, so mellow. My God forever fill you with His joy, and peace. Remember, when your sunsets, all troubles have ceased.

Nicely done! Be sure to put double spaces between your paragraphs. It makes it much easier to read. Laura
