Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2021-295: Wildflower Watch: The Colors of Life

October is not a big month for wildflowers in Texas.  I did notice a few things as I walk and observe life struggling to stay that way.  There are three colors I am seeing:  Green, Yellow and a sort of blue/purple.

I wonder if we could think of these as the basic colors of life.

Green is the common color of life.  When you fly over the country you can tell where things are growing.  You can tell when spring comes.  There are even different greens for new life.  The mesquite trees in our yard are a very different green in spring than the rest of the year.  

The second color that seems to endure all year is yellow.  It is common during wildflower season too but hangs around in some form even when it gets cold out.  It is the color of dandelions.  It can be the color of roses.  I see the roadside sprinkled with yellow when I walk.

I have also been seeing those blue/purple flowers.  They are not numerous but they keep showing up.  

Meanwhile, beware of green meat, yellow snow and people with purple hair.
