Mosaic Reminder of God's Faithfulness

In my last post, I told you I used to work for an interior designer. Even before everyone else was doing it, he worked primarily with taupes, creams, browns, and sage, although he was not opposed to pops of color as pillows or other accents. He maintained that walls should fade into the background, never "screaming" for attention.

I use way more than "pops" of color and my walls do, indeed, scream for attention. I often describe my house as a Crayola box, filled with color. I love that. I consider it one of the greatest benefits of singleness, along with being able to turn the TV on when I wake up at 3:00 in the morning, or squirting whipped cream directly into my mouth before putting the can back into the refrigerator. (Don't worry - I would never serve whipped cream from that can to my guests!)

I've always thought that my house was filled with happy colors, or maybe tropical colors. But this winter, as I reflected on that other winter filled with glorious sunsets, I realized that my house is filled with sunset colors. See for yourself...


Without realizing it, I have gravitated to colors that vividly remind me of God's faithfulness. What do ya know?

Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23


  1. What a lovely post. Thanks for the great words.

  2. Thanks, Mary. I'm still laughing about your neighbor!

  3. The sunset is so glorious - prettier than anything man could make!
