Beautiful Gatekeeper (aka Cage?)
I see the Joseph-Jesus connection too. Thown in a pit to die by his brothers, but God took that evil act and made it a Victory, just like the cross and the resurrection.
My girls are going to love your rainbow suggestion. My seven-year-old has one painted all across one big wall of her room. Oh I remember the days when I put rainbows on everything. Great idea: rainbows are symbols of God's promise and our hope.
Ahhh, you remember me!! Yay! Yup, tis Cage under a new persona, lol. It's funny this thread came up today because it hasn't been very long since I came up the the whole prism, and rainbow theory - It was nice to put meaning to color, and define the color of what I believe, ya know?
How ya been, btw?
I've been great, thank you. So good to see your posts around the forum too. I lurk much more than I post.
I love the idea of the light through the prism, making all the beautiful colors. Light is a great metaphor for God's love shining on us, warming us, energizing us, and then reflecting back out from us to the rest of the world.
Yup, and it's better than a pot of gold ...
I remember my papaw [pappy] would always tell me that there were pots of gold at the end of a rainbow. Boy oh boy did I want that pot of gold! So much so, that I would dream about me and pappy going out in the rain with shovels in hand, out to get it!!. Good memories, and not too far from the truth - there's streets of gold in them there rainbows. [A bridge to heaven]
I don't know if I've answered this thread before... too lazy to check em all... anyway...
my "spiritual colour" would be brilliant white, yet flecked with brilliant white, dazzling, like starlight, or lightening in the sky... the same colour as energetic, kinetic energy...
The , ferret and lunamoth delegations are wondering (as I am) how the "InLove Memorial Quilt" Project is coming along. (I hope you don't mind me calling it the "InLove Memorial Quilt" Project. )
By the way, my colors haven't changed.
Apologies Phyllis! I saw your question and in my mind I answered it. Just didn't get around to actually posting the answer.
Currently my mom duties have kept me from doing much of anything creative with sewing. I have a kindie girl and a third-grader, and we are on this weird year-round track schedule where they have school for a few weeks and then a few weeks off. When they are home we are out and about doing things, and when they are in school I seem to be spending a lot of time helping them with projects and homework and extracurricular activities.
In spite of the busy-ness and lack of large blocks of time, I have tried to be more intentional about nurturing myself, mind, body and soul.
I've started a work-out schedule and am training to do a half-marathon in September.
I'm taking a theology seminar course (second year now) and have taken on a couple of extra roles at my church.
And, as if that were not enough, I'm looking to get back into science/teaching part-time, so I'm job hunting.
Oh yeah. I decided to read the whole Harry Potter series start to finish. I'm on book 5.
This is just a long-winded way of saying that I've been a real slacker on my spiritual quilt sewing project!! Lovely of you to remember and ask about it.
This thread always reminds me of InLove.
