"find some colour in this black and white world"

Of the five senses humans were given, I value sight the most. To not be able to see everything around me would be one of the hardest things to deal with. After seeing the beautiful colours of a rainbow, or the vibrant shades and hues of a flower, I can't imagine a world without colour.

Colour makes everything more delightful. It brightens a dull situation, adds flair to the mundane, brings life to things that seem common and turns them into something special. I believe colour is God's touch of happiness on this planet for when life seems a little dark or dim.

Colour is a way for people to express themselves. When I'm happy and in a good mood, I like to wear colours that pop and stand out. Each colour holds a variety of emotion and meanings. For example, the colour red is used to express love and passion.

Though not all colours are the same. The light blue headband on your desk is not even close to comparing with the various blues of the sky. We have the ability to mix colours using paints, dyes, and pencil crayons. But the colours we create will never be as radiant as the green grass that grows, or the red apples in the trees. God is the ultimate creator.

And there's not just your average red, blue, and yellow etc., but colours within a colour! Like in the colour category of blue there's aqua, teal, navy, indigo, turquoise and so many more! Who knew colours could be so complex?
