I’m working on a coloring page that is quite detailed, more so than I generally like, but I love the Bible verse so much that I have been working on it.
I am not a very patient person when it comes to finishing projects like this, but it’s a consolation to paraphrase that Bible verse. I think, “He has made everything colorful in its time.” Furthermore, the “time” may not be too far away.
Partway through the coloring this morning, I noticed that I was telling a story through the colors. I’m an INFJ, so I see meaning in everything, but nevertheless I think this is cool: The greens represent (A LOT of) growth. The browns represent soil, and I also colored small portion in the lower left corner to look like stacked bowls. The red-and-orange portion represents fire (destruction?), and the gray in the upper right is stones (obstacles?). However, among those there is a lotus flower, which is a symbol of new life and resurrection, along with plenty more green and a light blue “sky” surrounding the lotus.
I see a lot of my own life reflected in the way that I colored and interpreted this, as well as hope for the future (!!!). No wonder they had us do so much coloring in “art therapy,” haha. 🙂
A sijo inspired by the picture: Out of the flames of adversity, from rocks of difficulties, After eternities of growth, without even seeing seedlings, Rise pink petals of the lotus, under peaceful heavens
What do you see in the picture?
One thought on “Colorful in Its Time”
“Like a roller in the ocean
Life is motion, move on
Like the wind that’s always blowing
Life is flowing, move on”
