Color is like food for the spirit--
plus it's not addictive or fattening.
R AND R SUNDAY
My color for this SUNDAY is green
These words are synonymous with green or represent various shades of the color green: apple, aquamarine, emerald, fir, forest, grass green, jade, kelly green, lawn green, leaf green, lime, mint, moss, olive, olive drab, pea green, pine, sage, sap, sea green, seafoam, spring green, viridian
Green is life. Abundant in nature, green signifies growth, renewal, health, and environment. On the flip side, green is jealousy or envy (green-eyed monster) and inexperience.
Green is a restful color with some of the same calming attributes of blue.
With both a warming and cooling effect, the color green denotes balance, harmony, and stability.
The color green is one of my favourite colors - it's fresh, natural and beautiful.
In Germany - green is the color for hope.
So I thought it would nice today to think about the color green. From my deck at the camper the view is mostly green every where I look. There is the green grass, the green leaves on the trees, and we have green hills in the back ground. They are all varying shades of green and you wouldn't mistake one from the other. Grass is grass, leaves are leaves and the hills of course are hills.
It's beautiful and it is very restful. I once worked for a lady who would send out important messages on green paper because she said she thought it would soften what could sometimes be harsh words.
One article I read said that:The color green balances our energy so that in looking at it we feel confident that growth is inevitable
Green invites us to shed our layers and open ourselves to the outside world, not in a frantic way but with an easygoing excitement that draws us outside just to sniff the spring air.
Green reminds us to let go and let nature do her work, while at the same time giving us the energy to do our own
Today is my day of rest and relaxation and I'm letting go and receiving the blessings of nature all around me. Hopefully it will renew my energy so that the week ahead I'll be ready for what ever may come along on the WAY.
I hope that your Sunday will have a little of that green in it...rest and relaxation is so important.
Sunday resolution: Think before you speak
