I’m joining Hooked on Houses because I’m hooked on fresh starts. And here’s to a beautiful life full of color at The Inspired Room.
I grew up playing with dolls.
I enjoyed pretending I was a Mommy.
I tucked in my precious babies every night, whispering sweet words.
I loved playing house.
And then I got a house.
With my own real babies.
Two in two years.
And then I wasn’t playing any more.
When I look at this picture, I see past the precocious toddler stuffing her long-legged baby brother into her doll bed. Playing, pretending.
I see the gray.
It was the color of my soul.
Our circumstances helped shade my world. We were working at a church that didn’t honor us, both of us working several jobs because the first wasn’t honorable.
My marriage held lies and secrets.
Loneliness was my shadow.
Depression my friend.
Money my need.
And then, God.
He became the light, the ray of Son to break up the darkness.
He delivered us from the dishonor.
He healed my broken marriage.
He met every financial need.
He colored my world.
And now red is so red.
Green is very green.
Have you seen yellow?
I’m still playing house.
Only this time, in color.

John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
