"In the beginning God created....."
The colors of the rainbow
Colors! I just love this picture I took in Petionville (south of Port au Prince), I loved the setting. The top with the lush green, the bottom is the top of a building of some kind of a tea room? with the Roman numeral clock, the upper center right with the unpainted houses and all the other beautiful colors of houses all stacked on each other up the hill. This is not a sight you see much in Port au Prince, but more of trash and unpainted houses in an unorderly fashion.
But the more I looked at this it made me think about how God created the different colors of people. Something I read today triggered some thoughts...If God wanted all white people he would've created them all white, or black, blue ect... But I wonder if order was just too plain and boring for God; so he mixed it up? He wanted the best of all worlds, so he blessed us when He created all the variety of colors to choose from the rainbow!
Somehow I think of it more in Haiti, when some days the color of my skin stands out and yet how I love how He created us all uniquely different. But for one main purpose; to serve, honor and glorify Him.

I have never been to Petionville. But since you gave me an idea that it’s going to be worth it to be there, I might try to visit it as soon as possible! When I visited one of the countries in Asia, I saw this concept already and it was wonderful. It will certainly give you an impression that life may be hard, but there is no reason for us not to put color on it. Thus, we are all encouraged to look at the more positive perspective in life. We need to keep on pushing until we find the happiness that we want!

This blog was inspired by the creativity of the Haitian people. The ideas of how they "Go Green" is because they have to save and make do with what they have. Unlike the American people with too much, that they don't think about waste. Their gardening and produce is grown mostly without pesticides, because they don't have it or they cannot afford it. In 2012-2014 our family had the opportunity to serve as missionaries in Haiti. We learned a lot and made many new friends there. Although we are now back to our home in America, we left a piece of our hearts there and try to visit and help where we can.
