My mother actually cringed every time some well-intentioned friend sent her a pink card for a special occasion. My mother hated pink. For all the years we lived at home, the three of us girls never had anything pink hanging in our closets. We still don’t. But who would know?
People who know me know I love chocolate. But with increasing age and girth—I’ve become selective about chocolate. Other than my favorite chocolates, I rarely eat sweets. If I’m going to intake extra calories I want it to be from something that I really enjoy.
However, I appreciate gifts of kindness regardless of what color or flavor they are. It really is the thought that counts. Kindness looks good in any color and is sweet on any tongue.
God is kind in every language, and to every person and creature.
God knows everything about us—right down to our color preferences. He even knows our secret flaws and failures—and yet—He loves us anyway. “O LORD, You have searched me and known me; You know…You understand…” Psalm 139:1
“We love Him because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19.

I love chocolate too! I’m so curious as to why your mother despised the color pink. There’s a story there somewhere. God is in the details of our lives, even our favorite colors. Thanks Stephanie.
Thanks for your comments, Meghan. I often wonder why Mom hated pink. My sisters and I don’t hate it – we just don’t like it because Mom poisoned us against it! God bless you and Tom.
Ha, Steph, I am not a fan of chocolate or pink, although it depends on the pink. I like it very pale, just as a biscuit with a thin layer if chocolate is also good. But you’re right about gifts and kindness. They are always appreciated, heaven sent or not. Bless you, Steph and thank you for another lovely post!
Thank you for your lovely comments, Val. You are always the right flavor – Good!
I love chocolate. Milk preferably. Even if dark is better for you.
Chocolate is good for us – all kinds! And it is really good at making us feel better! Thanks for the comment. Enjoy your day.
It sure is! I love chocolate.
HaHaHa! Me too! God bless.
