Today’s picture is a detail from The Summer Bach painted by Auckland artist Nanette Randall.

When the early settlers arrived in Aotearoa, those who tried to paint landscapes discovered they didn’t have a sufficient colour palette to capture the light here. Sometimes we don’t have a sufficient language palette to capture the wonder of the resurrection. Imagine what it must have been like for the first disciples, encountering the risen Christ!

This video shows what wonder looks like, as colour-blind people see colour for the first time. Today, consciously use your eyes to delight in the world around you. What might you be blind to, which God might be bringing to your attention? Reflect in your journal.
