Sweet Scripture Sunday....

Red, the most beautiful color in the World?

Ms Betty over at BettyjCrowe-throughmybackdoor.blogspot.com
posted about using the color red in her home.   
I think every home needs a little touch of red.
Regardless of what your predominant
decor color may be,
 red just makes things pop!

The color red is everywhere in creation.  It is apparent the color red
is a favorite of our Lord's too.

Red birds, red apples, red cherries, red flowers.......
There is even red Velvet cake.....Yum!

Yes, the color red is a favorite of mine!
You will always see it somewhere in my home.

but it also carries a special place in my heart. 
Because of the blood that Jesus shed for me on the cross.

This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ
 to all who believe.
There is no difference,
for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,
and are justified freely by his grace through
the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
God presented him as a sacrafice of atonement,
through faith
in his blood.

Romans 3:22-25

Yes, I do believe Red is a beautiful color!




  1. beautiful perspective and good reminder! thanks for sharing. i too love the color red as an accent in decor. thanks also for stopping by the farmhouse with your warm sentiments. ;)

  2. Red is truly a lovely color that I use a lot in my painting. You have given me even a deeper appreciation of it. I love to read your posts. They make me feel better about the world and keep me centered in my life. Thank you so much for taking the time to share with all of us.

    Bless you Patty! :)

  3. I had never thought of the color red like that before, ever...now I am not one who is drawn to red at all, but I do have a few things that are red, and now they will mean something more to me as I pass by them. Thank you for the awakening!

  4. Loved this post. I have read walls in my family room...so pretty. Loved the reminder and verse.

  5. Oh Patty, thank you for reminding me of the most beautiful red in the world. Jesus blood redeeming me. I always feel so uplifted by your post. I am so looking forward to visiting again. That red velvet cake is a favorite of mine!

  6. OH, I LOVe the color red. It is my favorite color :) :) Thanks for remind us about the blood of Jesus...so precious!!! Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  7. I love red as well and have it woven in and around my home. Had not thought of the correlation between decorating our earthly home with the color of the thing that makes our heavenly home possible. Great post.

  8. And...so cool you live near Mount Vernon. Where do you live?

    1. Shanda, I live in London which is about 20 minutes south of Mt Vernon. If you were traveling North I-75 you would take the Livingston exit to get to my house. It is the exit directly after the two Mt Vernon exits. It is so exciting to find folks who are Ky related. It is a small world!

  9. Hi Patty.../I love your Red's...I use a lot of it in my decorating as well...I even did a post on Reds being I don't have any Hearts to show for Valentine's...
    Thanks so much for the 'reminder' - it is so needed these days isn't it?

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comments...always fun to see you there.

  10. We just redid our room in red! My hubby loves it just like his late mom did! Your post was beautiful! When I read about people who are non believers I wonder how they will feel when they meet Our Lord. If He does not exist why did He give His own blood for us? It is something to ponder in todays wicked world! I am glad I am His child! Blessings, Anne
