Five Minute Friday: Color

I'm linking with Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama for her Five Minute Friday series today. She encourages her readers to write for five minutes on the given topic, not worrying about editing, etc. Just write what comes into your mind. The word for today is Color.


Color is simply the reflection of light.

We see something as red because it reflects wavelength from the red end of the spectrum. White light is simply the combination of many colors of the rainbow. We are surrounded by light, and I find that comforting.

We live in a kaleidoscope world full of colors and hues that can be obtained from mixing red, yellow, and blue. I find it fascinating that centuries’ worth of all different kinds of music can be created from a combination of seven different notes. Music is intangible, and yet it powerfully affects our souls. Color is the same way. We see it, but we can’t really touch it, taste it or feel it. Music and color are some of the intangible ways in which our Creator God communicates with us.

Since color and music can powerfully move the soul on earth, I wonder what it will be like in heaven, where the source of light is Jesus himself?

    Following you from 5MF...loved how you shared the science and then pointed to back to Jesus, the source of it all...wonderful post!

  3. This is such an interesting perspective on color.. the most unique i've come across through the gypsy mama. i absolutely LOVE that you emphasized color as the reflection of light & how comforting it is to know we are surrounded by light all the time. Simply beautiful.
