Leave this splash of color; don’t wipe it up!
Here creation and re-creation converge.
God gave us His sun* to light our world.
He gives us His Son** to light our hearts.
Still brilliant and burning, the sun provides life on earth.
Once battered and bleeding, the Son prepares life in heaven.
A temporary yellow is covered by an eternal red.
Savor the orange; soak it in!
Thank God for birth and re-birth.
Thank Him for Life.
*Gen 1:3, 4 [RSV]
**Jn 8:12 [RSV]
