sea foam break down

As I was walking this morning, I had a mini revelation about my fave colour.

I absolutely love sea foam/pistachio/moss green.

And today, as I was quietly listening to my Abba, I heard about why it is suited to me, why I am drawn to it.

Sea foam is a mix of green (made up of blue & yellow) and gray (black & white).

The blue represents both the ocean of my tears, and my delight at water & sky.  Blue purifies as it flows.

The yellow is the touch of sun my body craves, and the Son-light my entire being longs for.

Green is the life and growth colour, how God can grow new life from the seeds He waters and shines His light on to grow in His Presence.

The black represents the dark places that need to be uprooted, the white the purity God brings to the mix.

And the gray? The times where I could not see beyond the storms, when God broke through and let His light brighten the dark times, and the gray we can find ourselves overwhelmed by when we take our eyes off of Him.

All this makes up my favorite colour. 

When I wear it, I feel more like His daughter. I sense His closeness, and the pleasure He longs to reveal to me, His beloved.

I feel the prettiness and purity God sees when He looks at me.

People around me notice the difference when I wear this color, without knowing why.

So, I will continue to love my favorite color in the various hues I wear or decorate with, for it draws me closer to the One who absolutely adores me, and would do anything for me….which He has, and continues to do.

What colour helps you draw closer to Him?  Have you ever thought about that before?


shades of green

Tied with blue, certain shades of green are my favorite color.

So I decided to see what the color green represents today…. states (italicized, with my comments in regular font, interspersed with my fave green items ;):

Green is life. Abundant in nature, green signifies growth, renewal, health, and environment.
I feel I come alive when I am surrounded by green. I find it an energizing color, especially my sea foam moss green fave shade.

On the flip side, green is jealousy or envy (green-eyed monster) and inexperience.
Ummm. I have my moments, but I associate green more with this guy:

Green is a restful color with some of the same calming attributes of blue. Like blue, time moves faster in a green room.

Okay, that is a cool fact that I did not know before now…time moves faster in blue & green rooms 😉 I do feel cozy on my sofa:
Or when i’m looking at my accent pieces, against the mint walls in my kitchen:


Because of all the green in nature the color is reminiscent of Spring.
Which might be why my spring jacket & favorite scarf are, you guessed it: sea foam mossy green!

It’s also the color for “go” on a traffic light.
I like to wait for go signal before I move, especially when taking giant leaps, so that confirms this is a good color choice for me.

But as I tend to like more bluey greens, I think I should dig some more for what my fave shades of green means…

  Green (excerpted from:

Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility.
Mmmm. The first three appeal to me, but I guess as spring is a time of new growth, fertility can apply 😉

Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety.
Interesting. I never thought that green makes me feel safe, but I think I agree. Must ponder this from under my moss green throw blanket 😉

Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision.
Aha! I knew there would be a reference to sight. I find I see more clearly when around my fave green shades, so this quote means that might actually be true!

Green suggests stability and endurance.
I am fairly stable and can go the distance….again, a good fit. 😉

In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope.
AHAH! As a wordsmith, or herald, this resonates big time with me!
My favorite word/attribute is HOPE!
My favorite color (green) indicating hope is not what I expected, but again…COOL! And it fits me so well!
The tea pot in this one reminds me of being welcomed home.

Aqua is associated with emotional healing and protection.

As aqua is kind of one of the bridge colors between green and blue, this is also a good fit with me.

All kidding aside, I feel the most me when I am surrounded by natural more neutral colors- moss sea foam minty greens, walnut browns, sky blues, watery aquas, driftwood greys, sandy beiges.

I feel I connect with the Creator when I see, wear or are surrounded with those colors.

I do appreciate all the colors he has provided, but not all of them speak to me like my fave clothes (or my purse) do when i put them on.

What I like doesn’t mean you need to like those colors too.

I am me, you are you.

We are all free to enjoy what God has placed before us through our own uniqueness.

And that is fine with Him.

So today, I am extra thankful for sea foamy mossy green, and how God speaks to me through it. 😉
