What Difference Color Makes in Life

I realized at a young age that when my mother spoke of her childhood, I pictured it in black and white. She tried to tell me about buying a RED outfit on CREDIT...which she later got in trouble for doing and had to take back the outfit. The store clerk told her about credit and she thought it was the most amazing thing since sliced bread! SHE WAS STILL A CHILD when this happened...nowadays, that clerk would be contacted by Child Welfare for doing such a thing...lol. For the life of me, I could only picture a GRAY outfit. After pondering it awhile, I decided it must be due to the fact that I had only seen black and white photos of her childhood.

Anyhow, take a look at this black and white photo and see if DEPRESSION and DIRT aren't written all over it......

Ok, now look at what a little color does for the picture....they actually all of the sudden appear HAPPY.....wow, amazing if you ask me!

I still can't picture the red outfit even after seeing these colorized pictures.....sigh.......

Cute pic! I'm seeing them both in color tho?

Hmm... could your sister be moving to Pevely perhaps? Or Pendlton?

LOL! That's funny! I also think in the sepia toned picture they look so poor, but in the color pic they look well off! Your title is dead on: what a difference color makes!

To answer your question about the Campus Cuties? I have no idea what a good price is for them. But I do know that there are 2 sets of them, and if I saw the set that I don't have for that price I would definitely buy them. I guess it depends on how much you LOVE them and have to have them! I know I could probably count on 1 hand the times I've ever seen any singles, let alone a whole set. Just make sure they are all different!

Let me know if you buy them and if they are different from mine!

Thats very true,one does look poor and the other not.I guess you never realize how much a color or 2 can change feelings/thoughts/attitudes/etc.

Hi Traci!
I wrote that post about fluffy churches because honestly the one I have been going to is the one whose board just told the pastor he had been too serious for too long and needed to lighten things up. I am now hoping to find a solid, biblically based church that isn't afraid to preach what the Bible says. There is a group in our town that has started meeting for prayer and they are all people who have had the same experinces with "fluffy" churches. Sad really.
I am glad you have found a group that shares your desire to delve deeper!

Blessings and thanks for stopping by!
