Painted Thanks

In the midst of barbed wire fences and muddled gray skies, His promise prevails. Dappled in color, each a brushstroke, a reminder for all to breathe gracias.

2. Red cherry stained lips giving popsicle kisses to mommy
3. Orange bounces, shooting hoops on a basketball court in all places our backyard, teaching the goose neck to boys reaching for stars
4. Yellow post it with 8 year old penned words "I love you" stuck straight to my heart
5. Green snuggle chair throne room entrance, a place my own with my King.
6. Blue boyhood eyes sparkling with joy and hint of mischief.
7. Scarlet paper scraped crayon, the chosen favorite in budding artists box
8. Black sweetness wrapped up in puppy fur

holy experience

I like the contrast of the picture. Grey, dreary structures yet there's a colorful rainbow that's really great too look at.
