Word-Filled Wednesday ~#152~ God ~ Color Coordinator Extraordinaire

"And God said, 'This is the sign of the covenant I am making between Me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set My rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth." ~Gen. 9:12-13

If you have read this Marmee's Pantry blog long enough, or maybe searched through some older entries, you may know that I modeled from the time I was 9 years old until I was 25 and was also a make-up artist for 17 years. So, even though I've technically been out of "the business" for years, I still love to play with new colors and now make some of my own make-up.

So, since the make-up and fashion world involves so much color, it's sometimes hard for me not to notice certain color combinations and how they just naturally go together . . . or . . . don't. :-/ lol

And if you will pay close attention, you will notice that God ~ as ALWAYS ~ is THE Color Coordinator Extraordinaire. His natural combinations are the ones that catch our eye and are often copied in color palettes. 

If you have seen The Devil Wears Prada, you've gotten a small, but true, glimpse at how self-important high fashion icons think that they are in world events. Amazing, but true. But these people, in their tight little high fashion worlds, do not realize that all they can do is merely imitate the Master Designer ~ God has already put all of those incredible fashion colors together . . .  

The bright and cheery yellow and black of bees and black-eyed Susans~
The striking red and black of a Scarlet Tanager~
The sweet, restful greens and pastels of Spring wildflowers~
The bold blacks and browns of a Bay horse~
The happy combination of a blue sky dotted with white clouds~
And who isn't made a little happier by a bouquet of white and yellow daisies?~
And even our favorite seasons have their own color pallets ~ the bold, crisp natural tartans of fall ~
And the merry reds and greens of winter and the Christmas season
And lest we forget, God's ultimate color palette, the rainbow ~ the source of every color imaginable encompassed as the sign of His great promise. (Gen. 9:12-13)
Oh, don't we think we're so smart?

God is so good to give us such beauty. Enjoy it.

Blessings from Ohio . . . Kim<><
