THE COLOR OF JOY

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5 NKJV)

I can hardly wait to get to heaven to meet our Father, face to face.  I can hardly wait to see the unimaginable colors. 

When my Nanny was preparing to move from earth to heaven, she described the most beautiful flowers to my mom.  She thought Mom could see them.  Mom questioned, “Are you talking about the arrangements in the room?”  Nanny’s sassy-self replied, “No they are more beautiful than that.  Don’t you see them? Look at the meadow full of them. When you step on the flowers, they are not crushed.”

It has been a rather gray weekend.  Some things happened that truly saddened me.  The enemy tried to deter me from the mission.  Psalm 30:5 played like an old LP in my head. “Weeping may endure for the night, but joys comes in the morning.” When we trust in God joy always comes. Unspeakable, overwhelming joy!

On this day, Sister Sparkle sent me a sunrise pic, joy came!  It brought back great memories of my Nanny.  It was away with the gray of the previous days.   Although they were beautiful in the gray, there is nothing like the Fuchsia/Magenta sky to remind me of my Nanny and her Heavenly flowers.  I actually was stopped in my tracks because I was reminded to celebrate Nanny’s home going, February 10, 1999!

I enCOURAGE you to believe that no matter what happens, if a friend betrays you, a repair needs repairing again, your sister-in-law has a bad car wreck, you lose a grandmother, a father, a mother or a son…weeping may be for the night. However, joys comes In the morning just like the beautiful sunrise that turns the darkness to light.
