It starts with communication - dialog - conversation - body language. 
A reflection of one's soul, longing for connection but how? 
Maybe the question isn’t how.. but who.  

I don’t know about you - but for me I find myself thinking and drifting in and out of life’s deep, dark, questions of humanity. It doesn’t help with media blasting which political party is ‘correct’ or has the solution for the truth of humanity. If I incline my ear and tune my attention towards the things of this world, I find myself feeling suffocated.


Sometimes I allow my life to return to a black and white movie - dull, lacking color, and mundane. This life of mine becomes repetitive as the days count to weeks often feeling lethargic, and slowly I feel the pain radiate throughout my body with the diagnose of ‘bitterness’. My heart of flesh is slowly hardening into stone…

How do I escape? When does this movie end - where is the color?

The colors sing with the melody of life and suddenly I see, our eyes lock and I feel the pain leaving and purpose returning with the whisper of relationship. I am called into a relationship with the divine artist - and when I find my life with the giver of life my world becomes full of color. This melody of life has a name in which every knee shall bow, and every tongue declares that He is Lord - Jesus. I wanted to share song lyrics with you - that helped me write this piece.

“This is my awakening
I'm never going back to sleep
How could I after what I've seen
This is my awakening
There's color now in everything
Color now in everything” -Amanda Cook
