Self Portrait Tuesday ~*~ Red

(Blogger ate my post...and some comments :(...mean blogger)

In my mind, red is a pretty safe color. True, it can be loud and is often associated with rage, it is one of the chosen colors that swirl on the top of a police car as a warning (or worse) it is often painted in dining rooms because it has a reputation of making one feel hungry, but with all that, red, to me, is special. Men have the power ties, woman have the lipstick. It is a primary shade and next to blue, is in almost every color.

But, one of the finest things to me about red is when I put it on my toe nails. Look out...I'm feeling sassy and my feet feel sexy dressed in red. I have special shoes that I like to wear, set aside waiting for the red polish to come out. But more important than anything...is the red blood that was spilled for you and me. Jesus hung on a cross and shed his blood, so that you and I can be a family. Not just pen pals, co-bloggers or email buddies....Family. And that makes red a very special color indeed. Yes, I am a person of faith and have been since I was a little girl. Red is special to me, indeed.

I wrote a comment yesterday, which apparently has been lost in the blogger dimension (or else you dumped it). It dealt with your profession of faith, but I think I'd rather express what I said to you privately, if that's okay and if you tell me how.

I love red toes too! A few years ago I was on some sort of spiritual pilgrimage and we were dipping our toes in some water that was supposed to be sacred (I'm still not convinced). I was the only one their with bright red toenails. Make me wonder, "Do pedicures slow down the spiritual process?" Fortunately, the answer is no :)
