Five Minute Friday...Red is the color...

Today is Five Minute Friday. One word, five minutes, no editing. Today's word is RED....


go:

When my girls were little they had a song they loved to sing...it went like this...

Red is the color of my favorite rose.
Green is the color of the grass that grows.
Yellow is the color of the sun that shines.
Way up high in the blue blue sky.
Jesus, you sure know how to color.
Jesus, you sure know how to color.
Color my life with love.



They loved this song, they loved expressing their child-like faith with much enthusiasm.

Today I find myself thinking back to those precious days. Twenty years ago, our oldest daughter became a Christian. She was young and in the back our minds we wondered if she was old enough to understand exactly what being a Christian meant. At her age, she knew she loved Jesus and so the decision was easy for her. She began her life as a Christian praying for her little sister to become a Christian. Just over one year later, our Ashley led her sister Abby to the Lord! That just amazes me. To both of them it seemed so easy, they loved Jesus, so of course they wanted to serve Him and please Him.

Today both of these girls are now young women who still love Jesus. What a joy it is to watch these young women grow in their faith. Jesus has certainly colored their life with love!!!!!
