Written In Blue

I'm really enjoying these Memorial Box Monday's

My Mother-In-Law gave me permission to share this story with you.

Several years ago she read in a daily devotional book that if you are doubting God's love you should ask Him to specifically show His love for you in a certain color. 

This idea stuck with her, and so she asked God to show her his love in the color BLUE.

The day proceeded without any special circumstances, and she did her housework.  Frequently she would wonder  "Had God heard her prayer?"

As the day was drawing to a close her heart felt heavy--she hadn't seen anything unusual in the color blue, and she felt sad.

About this time my father-in-law came to the door and urgently called her to come outside. 

They have a beautiful pond in their back yard, and he hurried her toward it.

.....And there beside the pond



was a whole mass of Japanese Irises.....



in the most vibrant shade of blue she had ever seen.

  1. Beautiful story! I can so relate to that feeling of sadness thinking something should have already happened, only to be surprised by what God had in store just around the bend.
