this week's applesforpoppyanne.typepad.com quest... yellow.  i found this charming fire hydrant and water department access just steps away from my home.  until the search for yellow began, i had no idea they existed.  it's so strange how, with a focus, you can see something you have never seen before.  quite a significant lesson to be learned.  this creative challenge has now turned into a much deeper challenge indeed.

Bright yellow is the color of the sponge painted wall in the living room of our apartment. I hated it from the first day I saw it, but the landlord was unwilling to repaint unless we paid for it. I learned to get used to it.

Yellow is the color of a little bird that I saw in my dream on May 1st....it told me that our lives were going to change in 3 weeks.

It is 3 weeks later, and yellow is the color of the sticky note I put on the fridge...words of encouragement that everything will be okay since my husband has just become the latest victim of a layoff due to the poor economy.

I am grateful when I look at that yellow wall now...I'm happy that we have a place to live, no matter what that darn wall looks like!

Maybe yellow will be the color of the new door of opportunity that God will open for us!

Luv

Aunt B
