Undeserved Love

I’m reminded of a morning several years ago when I woke up knowing it was going to be “one of those days”.  At that time, I’d developed an allergy to ragweed – which our home is surrounded plentifully by on three sides of our property. While I didn’t get cold-like symptoms; I did feel dizzy. …

Perfection is within our grasp

It’s hard to live in an imperfect world knowing perfection is within our grasp.  But being built up by the Word of God we know: Love keeps on in all things.  Love would have us to keep on going; to keep on bearing with our imperfections because within our jars of imperfect clay God’s magnificent…

Take a chance and let an idea flow through you.

“Out of a space of stillness all creative endeavor is born”. Eckhart Tolle Recently I watched a video from Oprah Winfrey in which she interviewed Eckhart Tolle. I was completely undone by his quietness and moving ideas about mankind and how we should operate. This video comes from the place of my contemplating his first…

Pray Simply; Savor the Words You Speak

One morning I began to pray, “Thank You Lord”.  I said this again and upon speaking it the third time I felt like I wasn’t just repeating empty words but my insides were getting involved.  Pray simply, savoring each word you speak until you feel your heart and mind deeply connect with your words. Wait…

Feeling Blindsided? Choose to Overcome!

The definition of blindsided is: to be hit or attacked from an unexpected position. This description will not come as a surprise to you but it can pin point areas of our lives which might become targets for a blindside attack. As an example, a quarterback does not have eyes all around his head.  If the…

What to do between the calling and the opportunity: Wait!

I know it’s hard to wait on God.  Sometimes there is an in between time from when you are called to do something and when the actual opportunity for it appears.  Don’t be tempted to go ahead anyway.  Wait for the right time! ~Anne

The Road Less Traveled

I believe nothing is ever wasted in our lives and that God can use it all for our good. In one chapter of Light from a Dark Night, I wrote about seeing my life as a funnel. A picture is worth a thousand words and I hope this picture will explain how I felt even more…

It’s ALL GOOD- even when life’s not perfect!

Hi, I’m Anne and welcome to Shades of Color and Light. It’s easy to say, “Life’s not perfect right now” and put our dreams on hold. But, even when life isn’t perfect we need to remember- It’s ALL GOOD! I believe we must pursue our purpose moments in the face of imperfections and not let…

You are more than a face in a crowd

YOU ARE MORE THAN A FACE IN A CROWD.  YOU STAND OUT. YOU STAND OUT NOT MERELY BECAUSE YOU LOOK DIFFERENT FROM EVERYONE ELSE BUT BECAUSE YOU ARE DIFFERENT FROM EVERYONE ELSE. NO ONE ELSE HAS YOUR SPIRIT.  YOUR SPIRIT MAKES YOU COMPLETELY UNIQUE. AND COMPLETELY KNOWN BY GOD. WHEN YOU HEAR THE GOOD NEWS, THE GOOD…

Communion: The Energy To Fulfill Purpose

Long before adoption of our daughter Bella became a reality were endless documents to process and training sessions to attend.  One such training session had my husband and me reeling with doubt.  What had we gotten ourselves into?  What gave us the idea we’d be fit to parent one who may have more needs than…

Stop waiting for all the details and Just Begin

Starve out what hinders you

Be encouraged today from the Holy Spirit who said: “I decree a fast. A fast in the land. A fast from the profane. A fast from the distractions, a fast from the meaningless. With survival on the line see and hold onto what is meaningful. Do not starve yourself on my account, nor in My Name, says The Lord. …

Follow the path of purpose and share your gift

Our life purpose is hidden within us and the discovery of it is the most important journey we can be on. One reason I feel our purpose can be so hard to find is we ignore the power of our natural gifts. Not natural abilities but gifts. Our gifts are something we’ve been given by…

Begin Now doing what you love

Have you abandoned the LAW of PROGRESS?

Are there not some of us, beloved, who have been trying a good while to get back an old experience? If we succeeded we should only be where we were, and if we are only going to get where we were, we have abandoned the law of progress and begun the downward retrogression. “The A.B….
