Whose Got Your Back?

I have a continuing fascination with Olympians.  Women’s gymnastics was my favorite Olympic sport to watch in 2016. Several times the gymnasts told their teammates, “I’ve got your back”.  They didn’t say this randomly but just before a teammate was about to perform. I did a quick Google search through team interviews to see if they…

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…

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…

Like Adam and Eve; we can again walk in the Garden

It’s no secret- I love looking up words and their meanings. Today, I thought you might like something to meditate upon so I looked up some of the words and their origin from this popular passage. THEN THE MAN AND HIS WIFE HEARD THE SOUND OF THE LORD GOD AS HE WAS WALKING IN THE…

Look for others to help complete your puzzle

God gave all things to Christ.  He will not give any one man or movement a more complete revelation.  We need each other for full perspectives, to see a bigger whole, to complete our puzzles.  We can never do a complete work on our own.  ~Anne

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

There is greatness on the other side of your test

When you find yourself in an impossible situation I wonder if you are in a test of patience. While in a test of patience you will be under extreme pressure to make a decision.  You have two choices: Take matters in your own hands Wait for the Lord to act I would encourage you to wait…

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…

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…

The Inspiration of New Life: Innocence, Triumph, & Courage

Hi, I’m Anne from Shades of Color and Light. Happy Easter! It’s Spring and I’ve decided to try something new and do a sticker book. I’m at home, under a statewide mandatory stay at home order and everything has stopped still. Inside, within me, it kind of seems like a death of sorts but when…

Love is always flowing

Miles and Miles away is a day called yesterday.   From where I came to where I will go is miles and miles away.  Love was here for me then.  Love is here for me now.  Love is waiting for my tomorrow. Love is ALWAYS. The power to go back to yesterday to heal and restore belongs to Love….

Time for Unknowns to become Known

When God led the Israelites out of Egypt He wanted all of them to become his people and ascend the mountain into his presence.  Instead the people had a different idea.  They did not want to ascend or enter into a personal relationship with God. So, they told one man Moses, to ascend in authority…

Jesus: Willing to Wash your Feet

Recently, after taking communion I heard, “You are already clean”. It was certainly a most puzzling statement from Holy Spirit and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.  I’d like to take you to chapter 13 of John where Jesus told his disciples they were clean. In the passage Peter becomes indignant at the thought…

Begin Now doing what you love

Recently I read a book called “Big Magic- Creative Living Beyond Fear” by Elizabeth Gilbert. Elizabeth puts forth the idea that we give up what brings us joy because it does not produce an income. This idea is what hit closest to home for me and inspired my latest video. In my early twenties I…

Without Fear; Find Your True Self

“You’re always on my mind. You’re always in my dreams. Your worth and value exceeds all wealth. My thoughts toward you are good. My dreams for you are good. No matter what you’ve done (or not done) makes no difference to me. I’m not your boss! I’m not looking for performance! I’m looking for you…

Are you different than everyone else?

Maybe no one has anything nice to say about your family.  They may be deemed lazy by others. But YOU are different.  You are a hard worker. But why are you different? What purpose is there to being different?  You are different because God is in you to be the one who turns your family name around. ​ Purpose…

Ignore your feelings and hold on to Faith.

Feelings are based on the physical interpretation of our surroundings.  They communicate to us on a lower frequency than faith. Feelings are earthly in nature and can be manipulated by many things. Faith is a spiritual substance not able to be measured by  earthly standards. Therefore faith operates on a higher frequency than our five…

Are you tempted to quit on love?

Is there anything worse than being tempted to quit on love?  Sure, it might sound good to stop loving someone while your mind keeps fresh wounds alive. But if given the chance your inner spirit will eventually lead you away from the hurt. Then, after your heart softens you’ll wonder what in the world kind…
