What color is joy?

My Spiritual Director once asked me to describe the joy I was feeling. I told her it was like a big bouquet of flowers.

She then asked, “What color are the flowers?”

“All the happy colors,” I replied.

I felt a shock of joy on this cold January morning when I had the idea to pair this Bubblegum-Pink cashmere scarf (thank-you little consignment shop!) with my new Tangerine sweater. Bright colors give me such energy, such delight.

I wonder what colors you associate with joy? Are there ways you can incorporate those colors into your life this winter? Might time spend with your happiest hues be its own form of prayer?
