Painting Rainbows

rainbow with quote

“Sometimes you have to paint your own rainbows.”

This innocuous mantra was written on a pad of “sticky notes” someone gave me as a gift.  The phrase has been stuck in my head and my unconscious mind since late elementary or early jr. high.  I don’t remember who gave it to me, but I got the message:  “Sometimes, Cheli, you have to make your own happiness.”

Hearing this phrase lures me out of a place of safety and comfort into the unknown.  Landing me in a true-to-my-God-given-purpose place.

We…………..see God’s original purpose in everything created.  For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels – everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him.                Colossians 1: 15-16 (MSG)

And so, here I am again painting my own rainbow.  Seeking to find my voice, a personal expression of who I am and who the Creator made me to be.

Exploring why?”

and

what am I going to do about it?”

Will you join me on the journey of “why?” and “what am I going to do about it?”  Even if you have to paint your own rainbow?

Cheli
