Photo-A-Day: Colour

“What’s your favourite colour?” I was asked this question soon after arriving at work this morning. A friend of mine, affectionately known as Uncle Foff, just returned from a missions trip to Cambodia — and he came bearing gifts. He held up a selection of these cute coin purses and offered me a choice.

It was an easy decision. I’ve always loved red — most of all deep wine red, or burgundy. It reminds me of royalty and richness. Pictures of plush velvet drapes flash through my mind, along with deep red roses, glamorous satin dresses, plump cherries, the red carpet that is saved for VIPs, and sparkling rubies.

But this deep red also reminds me of the blood that was shed for my sins upon a cross. Jesus. And with Easter only days away, it is appropriate once again to reflect on the life sacrifice He made in love for me. Yes, that red represents the colour of love to me.

So, today I am grateful for gifts in red, both small and great. What is your favourite colour, and what does it represent to you?

  1. Any berry colour is my favourite. Cherry, raspberry, blueberry and plum. Yep all the ruby fruits, I think. 😉

    • Great colours, eh. Such depth. Love ’em. 🙂
