Green leaves, blue sky, morning star

One of my favourite colours is green because so often as I look into the trees, into every leaf, into the forest, and into every plant rising up from the earth, I am seeing God creating new life and a new order emerging beyond this present darkness.

It is the kingdom of His Son breaking forth that dispels the darkness and says to you who are barren, “What was lost, I am restoring to you. I give you a new name. I will give you a heritage— a posterity that is better than the women who bore ten sons. What I give to you will endure even beyond the farthest star you see through the night sky, even to the morning dawn.”

I am also fond of blue because of the ocean, the sky, and beyond the sky are stars. When those stars are no more, we will replace their brightness, for beyond them are the words of God.
