Spinning with Lisa Jo and community again today.
A five-minute spill from a word prompt.
Today it’s about color . . .
I consider Kitchenaid mixers, and my head spins.
So. Many. Choices.
Not just over features and styles.
Like a tilt-top or bowl-lift.
Like a 4-quart or 5-quart or 6-quart bowl.
Can’t we just make it simple?
I have to choose between green apple or caviar or buttercup or persimmon or bay leaf or cornflower or empire red or . . .
How about just plain white?
White white? Or meringue white?
Or maybe stainless?
Would that be imperial gray or brushed nickel or metallic chrome or . . . ?
He is not stingy or simple when it comes to color.
Consider . . .
The vibrant red of a cardinal on a pure white snow blanket.
A blood orange that drops out of pink and lavender chiffon.
Pine, dune grass, and Lake Michigan greens that border granulated brown sugar.
The deep blue of a dew-dropped berry or an azure overturned china bowl.
A flaming gold leaf or a vivid yellow finch.
Consider the fireworks or softness of a field of wildflowers.
Or . . .
It makes my head spin.
If you decide for God, to display a life of God colors, don’t drive yourself crazy about fashionable mixer colors. Has anyone become a better cook by so much as a teaspoon of the hue of their tools? Do you really think it makes a difference? All this time wasted on these choices. Just. Go. Outside. ~Me (personalized from Matthew 6:25-29 in the Message) and yes, this part took longer than five minutes.
