I am with Ailsa! As the days grow shorter and colder a good shock of color helps bring back the cheer that can be so easily sapped away by the cold and dark!
One of the things I loved about the city of Cork was the bright colours of the homes and shops.
The juxtaposition of these lilies and the green of the falls in Blarney’s rock close made for an incredible splash of color!
But then perhaps the brightest of colours are to be found in the hearts of people. Colorful people can’t be hidden by the dark or the cold of winter. Their hearts bring warmth wherever they go. These folks are from one of the Bible study classes I taught last year. I am so thankful for their colourful personalities and for the bright faith they pour into the world around them.
