Quiet colors, a bit off the beaten path for this artist, but really nice for a change. The muted violets and the soft yellow greens bring intrigue into the painting...and for some dissonance a bit of orange.

We all have that in our lives you know... that dissonance... the part of us that flares out different from the core of who we are. Mine is the color red that 'flares' up in my life occasionally in clothes and now in the color of my car.  It is like the 'rebel' in me I guess. Red was my Dad's favorite color and when he was in his last year of life I bought my car, my red car, and it's name is Gerald after my dad.

 My kids are laughing if they are reading this.  My youngest told me at breakfast last Sunday that before I died he wanted a written confession of all the bad things I ever did because I am such a 'quiet' person that really tries to do good.  I told him I had a few major hiccups in life... ones I still regret this day but know that God has forgiven me.  I sin daily and I know all sins are equal in God's eyes...but there are these certain ones that I learned from and they passionately changed my life for the better...making me a better person. Do not think they are up for "sharing", but maybe they are... read the bible verse below from James.

So even though dissonance sounds like 'rebel'... it does not have to be... it is simply part of the facet of who you are. Dissonance in a piece of art actually makes it stronger, so why would it not do that for us in our lives?

James 5:13-16
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
