The color purple...

"I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.  People think pleasing God is all God cares about.  But any fool living n the world can see it always trying to please us back."

-- Alice Walker, The Color Purple

The other night I spotted this beautiful flower on my way into a restaurant at 7:30pm. As I stopped to snap a picture with my phone, my husband asked with an impatient sigh, 'what on earth are you doing?'

I have never forgotten the quote above from Alice Walkers' wonderful novel  The Color Purple.  I try never to walk past the color purple without at least pausing to appreciate it.  So, there in the dark, I stopped to appreciate and take a pic.  Any fool can see that God is trying to please us back.
