My world is slowly being colored white during the first snowfall of the season. It is the day I’ve been waiting for, this first whiteness to cover the dark colors of the dying season. Snow makes my heart smile. Perhaps it is the pristine color of unblemished white remind me of the purity of Jesus, my Savior. Though white isn’t really a color, it is something I can see with my eyes. I can almost taste it. It calms me. It recalls the beauty of hope.
My world was darkened by the recent passing of my 17-1/2 year companion, Charlotte. My heart was heavy with the loss of her sweet presence in my life. Her two brothers have also been struggling with missing her. Our circle is smaller.
This week has been one in which I didn’t do much coloring. Toward the end of the week, I managed to color. Also, I can share the pictures I colored for the color along with two of my daughters as it is the last day of the month. One version I colored with pencils, the other with markers. I’m also sharing a pic I colored the week before, but forgot to post last week from the Chibi Girls book.
My house is now decorated for Christmas and I’m settling in for a comfortable winter as the snow continues to accumulate. May your world be filled with beautiful colors…until next week…God bless you and yours.
