I’m missing hue

February 24, 2015

I believe there are colors that have never been seen on this earth.

I want to see them.

I am not sure how they could be more glorious than the colors of a sunset, the brilliant oranges and golds glittering and fading into the deep blue of night, with streaks of throbbing pink fighting sleep.

Could the tail feathers of a peacock be more beautiful if they only had a little dab of something? Is it possible?  What about the intense velvety purple of a lemon-throated iris?  Could that lily be gilded?

Does God see the colors we see when He looks at His creation?  Or does He have a different type of eyes, ones that see eternity and the unknown and all the colors at once?

Maybe love has a color.  Maybe forgiveness does too, and grace and courage.

Maybe laughter has a color.

Maybe laughter is all the colors.

    Reminds me of the scene in The Shack when his eyes are opened to see beyond, and colors explode and the vision is beyond this world. Thanks for a wonderful thought this morning!

    I think laughter is all the happy colors exploding into the shape of a heart.
