Greetings, all. And happy Friday.
Here at 7 Days Time, Fridays can only mean one thing… It’s time to link up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday.
It works a lil something like this: Lisa-Jo gives us a prompt. Then we write. For five minutes. No overthinking or strategizing. Just write.
Pretty simple, yes?
Then let’s get this party started.
Today’s prompt: RED
When someone asks my favorite color, it’s never red. My instinctive answer is blue. Followed by purple (Go K-state Wildcats.)
Then as the color list progresses, perhaps green, because folks say it’s “my color” to wear.
But never red.
However, as I look around my house, apparently red is a bigger player than I thought. My living room curtains match our recliner… Both a burgundy-maroonish red.
My kitchen walls? Bright American red.
And if I am feeling fiesty (and baby girl gives me half a moment) my go-to fingernail polish choice… Yep, you guessed it, red.
When I stop to think about “red,” I think about the candle burning on my table. I think about my dad, who we refer to as a “Red-Headed Irishman.”
When I think about the color red, I think of Christ. The blood He shed for us, to give us a hope of eternity in heaven. How He bore our sins as the red rivers of pain and sorrow pooled underneath that cross.
How His red blood washed us white as snow.
Red. It’s not my favorite color. But maybe it should be.
I always welcome your thoughts, friends. Feel free to comment below… And thanks for stopping by.
Praying you have a stellar weekend as we strive to keep our eyes on the cross moment by moment, day by day.
“This is God’s Message: ‘If your sins are blood-red, they’ll be snow-white. If they’re red like crimson, they’ll be like wool.'” ~Isaiah 1:19 MSG
