Five minute Friday – Red

Red always makes me think of love.  And love makes me think of my husband.  And how much he loves me and how much I love him.  Red makes me think of carnations and somewhere in my distant memory; I seem to recall that my dad used to grow red carnations in our front yard.  Red makes me think of happiness and joy and laughter.  Red stands out and is noticed.  And I hope that the love for my husband is noticed, as the carnations in my distant memory were noticed by all the kids walking home from school and who always used to pick one from our garden as they walked by.  Red makes me think of love.  And love makes me think of how much God loves us – in every way possible and how He always, always wants what is best for us, in every way possible.  Red is such a happy colour with such happy connotations.  And I love the colour red.  At one point I had a red handbag, mobile and wallet.  Love, love love red.
