Topic: It's a Colorful World (12/03/09)

TITLE: Our Colorful World of Emotion
By mary wolf


Our Colorful World of Emotion

Each part of our lives are compiled of a multitude of emotions. Many
Influence our life's decisions.

Laughter is such a pleasant influence, one we all enjoy and need. "Laughter is the best medicine". Once quoted, has much truth! Perhaps we could color this emotion Pink, or yellow.

Sorrow, will touch each of us, at one time or another. Perhaps it is the loss of a loved one. Even a loss of a pet can bring sorrow. This emotion is often shared because of another's loss also and can bring friends or family closer to each other.
It is bittersweet, no one wants to experience it, yet it is as much a part of life as laughter. Through it we grow stronger. We learn to have compassion for others who suffer. Sorrow gives us an appreciation for the pleasant components of life.
It is colored dark blue or Black time, in my mind

Worry involves many things, none of which we can control. Perhaps it is the most useless emotion we endure. It can not change the fact or situation that we are worrying about. I can not fix others or even offer comfort about the things we are worrying. Yet in knowing this there are times when we worry.
It must be gray because it is neither black nor white. It has no defining purpose.

Oh yes, an important one is anger. Did you know it is ok to be angry? It is what you do with that anger that matters. Some thoughtlessly use this emotion for their response to anything that does not gratify. Others use this as their responses to hurt or pain.
My Mother always used this emotion to give her energy to clean. When I was a child my father would advise me, "Better behave, mother is polishing door knobs to day". Meaning she was angry about something and rather than taking it out on others she quietly worked it off.
We may find our selves in the hands of an angry God one day, if we reject his only begotten Son.
Surely this must be the color red.

When we have a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ we have a peace that passes all understanding. It is faith that offers a calm assurance that He is in control. Peace is an emotion that only He can bring about.
No matter what our emotions are doing to us they will change, He will always be the same. Like a calm lake or a clear sky, peace reminds me of the color blue.

It takes all of these emotions and more, to complete us as a person. They make us individuals, and keep us growing. Like the seasons of life, they will change in time.
Growth is a picture of the wonderful green trees and vegetation?
God gave them for us to enjoy life; Emotions offer an opportunity to grow in the knowledge and wisdom.
I think the color green would be used for growth.
Whatever emotion we are going through, think about what color you are adding to your palate of color and appreciate this wonderful gift that enables you to express your feelings to others . It is a colorful world in which we live.

A good way to describe emotions. Good work.
