My Colorful World (with a little help from K.C. Procter)

Pink!

That is a REALLY COOL CAR – by the way – who WOULDN’T love that car?  Oh yeah.  It’s pink.  I LOVE pink!!

But I digress.

Yesterday I was making a schedule for my music students.  I had been using the same old boring excel program through word – now ‘word for mac’ and it was really not doing what I wanted it to.  I began to search in the programs that I already had on my computer and even went online to search templates for sample schedules to download.  I came up empty.  It was confusing and frustrating and putting me in a VERY BAD MOOD.  I asked my husband to look and see what he could find – he was sure he had a good template on word and proceeded to print a couple out for me to look at.  In the mean time I stumbled onto a template website for word and found one with amazing  BRIGHT COLORS (tried to change my font to bright colors but failed miserably – but you get the idea).

The ones that Greg had picked out would have done the job – they were business like and professional.  But the one with bright COLORS really spoke to me!  And if you have ever been to my home and in particular in my music office/studio – you are greeted with pretty green walls – a Thomas Kincaid wall border and other music motifs and bright pictures on the walls.  Color definitely speaks to me!  It makes me feel happy.

All that said – and knowing that I am FEMALE – it should be no surprise to hear that I like PINK and other BRIGHT PRETTY COLORS.  My friend and fellow blogger, K.C. Procter wrote something on this subject which is RIGHT ON – in his article Pink-versus-Blue It’s very clever and I think he really gets it – with a little help from a couple of books 😉  I mean – do men really ever get women?  I mean totally?

You will get a good chuckle reading what K.C. Procter has to say.

And now – I’m going to go shopping with my daughter for shoes because I have “nothing to wear” in my closet 🙂

Enjoy and God Bless

What’s Your Color?

My husband was the minister at a memorial service this morning – for a dear “saint” of God – who, in her own writing of her testimony – told how she had a life  of struggle and circumstance – and was NO saint.  Just a grateful recipient of God’s favor, grace and mercy.  Sound familiar?  Yes – it does for me too.

Greg then mentioned how each person on her life journey had impacted her life – and was like a “color”.  Each person we meet through life – touches us and adds “color” to our lives – and when they are gone – that “color” is gone.

I have thought about this off and on throughout the last several months – people in our lives that represent “color” to us.  Each one a different shade – giving us something we would not have without them.

As a musician I often use “color” examples to my students.  I like them to know what it means to use the “tone” in their voice to match a certain color.  Sometimes the student sings too “bright” or “yellow” and I need to use a dark color such as “deep red” or “deep purple” to get them to change the tone in their voice.  This works well with students – because everyone can understand what a color represents – and then try to mimic that sound with their singing voice.

I am “dark pink” – not bright and sunny like “yellow” – not too dark like a “deep red” or “deep purple” – I am positive – but sensitive and at times complicated.

I have some friends that are “yellow” – very up and positive ALL THE TIME.  I also have some friends that are very “deep red” or “deep purple” they are dark and mysterious, complicated and in their own right – fascinating and ever changing.  And I have friends in the middle with various shades of green and blue.

My husband is “blue” – easy going – uncomplicated – predictable and cautious.  He is simply the best and kindest of men – with a heart of gold.

My son is “dark green” – he’s a little like me – deep and sensitive – but also like his father – easy going and laid down.

My daughter is “fire engine RED”  She’s a black and white – no nonsense girl – who wears her emotions and feelings out in the open – there’s no hiding with her – she’s unpretentious and authentic – irreverent and wonderful.  You never have to wonder where you stand with Ashlee – if she doesn’t tell you – her look will knock you over.

My sweet son-in-law is “blue” like my husband – easy going, uncomplicated – with a good kind lovable heart.

What’s your color?  Is there anyone missing from your color palette today?  We all need each other – for that perfect balanced rainbow of color in our lives.

Have an awesome weekend!

God Bless
