happy color

4There is not one blade of grass,
there is no color in this world that
is not intended to make us rejoice.

i agree.
i'm all for happy colors,
which all colors are!
(i say that phrase "happy color" quite a bit. ask anybody.)

What about the idea that every colour is associated with a certain kind of emotion (not all of which are happy)? Or at least, deep blue makes me feel a different sort of happy than hot pink does.

They had never seen hot pink in Calvin's day.

No...I'm pretty sure the Geneva Psalter was hot pink...

actually, i'd say that's true.
most shades of purple make me inexplicably unhappy-- almost always.

so maybe not all the colors are quite so happy after all. but i do think God created them to make us happy.

dear heavens, what if everything were black and white?

i suddenly appreciate purple.

I've always liked purple, but in small tasteful touches. I'll bet they'll be colors in the world to come that we can't even imagine. I think it will be as dramatic a change as leaving the womb was.

I love purples and blues.
