 Light is where you’ll find truth; truth is where you’ll find color.

 Color is where you’ll find God.

 Color is God. 

 It’s his love for you.

I know it’s obvious to people with sight that light is what makes color happen. 

Color is a product of light and God IS light, so color testifies!

To the everlasting goodness of a good God.

One who wants us to fill us with COLOR.

Have you ever thought of color this way?

How about the rainbow? Have you considered that perhaps the reason it resonates so powerfully within your heart is not only because it paints goodness in the skies after storms, but because it reminds of God’s love for us?

The colors we see here on earth, aren’t even close to what we will see in heaven.

My husband, Kevin, is colorblind, so he doesn’t see earth’s color the way most of us do. Oh, he can see a rainbow and other colors, but colorblindness means it isn’t the same for him as it is for me.

Our guest today is going to talk about blindness, but in a way you’ve probably never considered blindness before. You see, her son is blind, but no one knew that for many years.

Because, Sebastian is a living miracle.
