What's your favourite colour?

Let's go back in time....da na na nahhh...da na na naahhh..to yesterday.

Oh, only yesterday? Didn't need that second da na na naaahhh. I just hate to waste sound effects.

Yesterday at the seminar thingymabob at the House of Prayer, Andy Hickman who spent 2 years at IHOP Kansas (International House of Prayer aka International House of Pancakes) was telling us a story about a girl on one of the prayer teams there. And now I'm going to tell the story to you. So grab your cocoa/latte/gin and sit back...

One day this girl Andy knows is driving along in her car in Kansas city. Suddenly Jesus appears in her car. In the flesh, wham bam, he's sitting there beside her. As you can imagine she was mildly shocked and excited by this turn of events.

Now have you ever wondered what question you would ask Jesus if you had the same experience? Not that we have to wait to ask him a question of course. Though perhaps you are storing up some good ones for heaven...you know, deep theological questions. I am just sitting here speculating on which questions each of you would ask...Gordon...ahhh now Gordon will definitely have some theological posers ready and waiting...but ANYWAY, I am really digressing now.

So back to this girl in Kansas. Well while she was thinking about what she should say, a question just popped right out of her mouth.

She said, "Jesus, what's your favourite colour?"

And he said, "Sunset"

"But Jesus," she said, "A sunset isn't one colour, it's lots of colours."

"Ahh, but in heaven sunset is one colour, because there are so many colours there that you can't imagine right now."

"Would you like to ask me another question?" he asked her kindly. Knowing that she felt like she'd blown it with her first question.

A second question leapt out of her before she had a chance to formulate it in her mind.

"Jesus, what's your favourite sound?" she asked.

And he replied

"The human voice".

Isn't he fab?

Well lo and behold if I didn't just look out of our window a few moments ago and leap up exclaiming (in a very reverent way)

"HOLY COW!"

We've just had the most spectacular sunset here - the sky was rose pink and then blazing orange. So I leaped up with my teeny tiny digital camera to try and capture a little bit of it for you. In the first pic you can see the river to the left hand side - in real life it turned pink.







Oh and if you click THIS you'll be able to hear my dulcet tones, just to add to the experience.

What do you mean it's not working?

Oh ok, you'll just have to phone/skype me then....

Hey Adele,

I actually know another girl who once asked Jesus while journaling what His favourite colour was, and He said 'pink'. This girl didn't like pink at the time, so she then asked him why and what kind of pink? He told her 'sunset pink'. True story!

Love the pictures by the way x

Jesus actually turns up in her car and all she can ask is "What is your favourite colour?" and "What is your favourite sound?" Incredible!
