We wrongly believe that we don't matter much to God and that we are mostly on our own until the day He decides to rescue us. The truth is, we are already receiving the unshakable kingdom of God that Jesus Himself prayed would come to earth. When it has fully come we will know without doubt because nations will be filled with sons and daughters who know the heart of their Heavenly Father. These sons and daughters will be so convinced of His goodness that they will access His better way of doing everything and establish it on earth.
Creation and the nations will rejoice , not because Christians are "in charge" or dominating, but because Christians love and serve in such a way that the lies of the enemy about who God is can no longer be believed. He will become the Desire of the Nations when we display, through culture, the God of all of life - the One who indeed cares for His creation and is more than willing to provide solutions that help us know our value to Him.
Throughout history we see that God has always desired to have a people who knew the "real" Him. From the beginning He wanted us to have a relationship with nothing between us, face to face. So what is the "real" Him? It is significantly more than the God we have shown the world. The answers to these questions are critical because we are not able to show the world a God that we haven't seen Him as ourselves.
We must see Him as this God before we can reveal Him as this God. Are you ready to be a part of a generation of Christians who say yes to the most privileged assignment of all? This assignment is nothing less than displaying to a world of "orphans" the correct reputation of our beautiful God - One who loves His creation so much that He cares about every area of life. If you are ready to go deeper in your understanding of God's colorful nature, then we invite you to This 9-lesson class was created to help you personally encounter the seven primary faces of God as Communicator, Papa, Creator, Provider, Redeemer, Teacher, and King.
The Rainbow God Class will challenge you to recognize any potential lies you may have believed about God through the ways you personally experienced the broken systems of our culture - as well as discover the truth about God that we were meant to display in society. Throughout the nine lessons of the Rainbow God Class, you will be inspired to let go of any "orphan" mentality you may have had and experience transformation into your true identity as a son or daughter of God.
Get ready to know a God who is eager to trust you with the solutions that society needs for every problem that exists. We are honored to have the opportunity to invest in you as you are being prepared to display His 7 colors of love! Revelation tells us there are 7 lamps of fire blazing around the throne and these are the 7 spirits of God. We'll see how the truth about God, viewed through each of His 7 faces, reveals His love and overcomes each specific lie that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
The true battle front is always the knowledge of God His correct reputation being seen in the earth. To the degree we have a limited or diminished perspective of who God is, to that degree we ourselves are limited and diminished. In every nation there are 7 primary areas of culture in which we were meant to reflect an aspect of who God is:. This Rainbow God course is about the idea of the faces of God being restored to society - a more advanced understanding of the 7 Mountain Mandate. This is the relational understanding of our assignment, which is of utmost importance, because our God is love.
Everything about God has to do with good news and redemptive conversation - that which is uplifting and restorative, His point of view. His communication always expresses His plan of redemption for everything. Even when God requires repentance, He always contextualizes it with a promise of a good outcome. He's an encourager, an uplifter, a promise maker, with mercy dripping from His lips.
He loves with His words and with the way He communicates. We all have an assignment on the Mountain of Family. Our initial and most important assignment on every mountain is to first see that aspect of the face of God that is relevant for that mountain and then study and gaze at Him long enough to understand our mission.
We usually go after family matters in a backwards way - going after behavioral manifestations and seeking to work at things from that end. Therefore, we're usually trying to stop divorce, abortions, homosexuality, adultery, fornication, abuse, etc. He was Creator and He is still Creator and He's actually a compulsive creative. If we can't see Him in this way, we're going to have a hard time bringing successful reformation to the Mountain of Celebration of Arts and Entertainment.
Many think our primary mission on this mountain is to bring values and the message of salvation to the big screen, but it really isn't. Those are assignments for those on the Mountain of Religion, where we showcase the Redeemer face of God.
He's joyfully creative and that manifestation of His creativity brings heaven's wow factor with it to earth. His creativity always reveals His glory and it's meant to touch our emotions deeply. Mammon gets overthrown when the lie behind Mammon gets overthrown by the truth of who God is as Provider. Therefore our starting place is gazing at our Father as Provider and absorbing that truth into our ever-expanding perspective of who God is.
This is an important understanding of God. Not only can He provide, but it is in fact something He is. He doesn't need to try to drum up a business or provision strategy to assist us. He is Provision. We've celebrated this aspect of who He is so much that we've preached and lived as though this were all He is.
It's clearly the greatest facet of His face for us as lost humanity. A redeemer is one who gains possession by payment or ransom. It's the payment for a prisoner. We believe we all came from the heart of God before He put us on earth, but we're born lost and in need of being ransomed. Highly entertaining, emotionally thrilling and engaging cuddled up in bed reading. Now have the overwhelming urge to go back and read the beginning of the series. Sharon Sala has created a community filled with very believable people When they all come together, the result is a wonderful, caring community.
I loved this book with lots of fast paced exciting action. It started out strong and just kept going. It helped suspecting this relationship from previous books and the bond between people in the town. These were two of my favorite characters in the series.

Ruby has a secret admirer who has been sending her gifts. I also enjoy when the misbehaving characters in these stories get what is coming to them. It is so satisfying. The Color of Love is a charming story. I was wondering if this would be the final story in Blessings, Georgia but a hint at the end of the wonderful epilogue suggests there will be more. Feb 04, Book Lover rated it did not like it.
Everybody knows everyone and their business. There are many subplots going on at the same time. The writing is simplistic and, frankly, boring. Nutt Butterman is the town lawyer. What a ridiculous name for a lawyer, even one in a small town. Rolling my eyes. Wimpy guys are so not my forte. Ruby Dye has lived in Blessings, GA for the last 15 years. She escaped a physically abusive ex-husband and started a new life. Somehow, in those 15 years, no one, not even her best friend, knew anything about the abuse, just the divorce.
The Curl Up and Dye is her business. Her ex-husband drives several hours from Tennessee into Georgia really? So this is a DNF for me. Jun 29, Tonya Lucas rated it it was amazing. I never hesitate to buy a Sharon Sala book. She can write books that draw me in, grab my attention, and leave me amazed at her talented storytelling. I have loved all The Blessings, Georgia books, each one has been phenomenal. Charlie and Pitty-Pat stole my heart. All the wonderful folks of Blessings coming I never hesitate to buy a Sharon Sala book.
All the wonderful folks of Blessings coming together during a tragedy, just reaffirms how small towns take care of their own. And true to Sharon Sala fashion, she threw in several curve balls and unexpected twists in this one. View all 4 comments.

The Color of Love revolves around the whole town through each book focuses mainly on one couple.
Second chances are the main theme and Sala applies it to series of people who more than deserve it. The story shocks as we open the book an assault and kidnapping. Sala gives us the background on this couple so we can understand the who, what, and whys. Rescued almost immediately, we watch as the town tries to deal with one of their own being hurt and how they try to help them heal. This story engages from page one as Sala sets the tone and scene. Solid characterization, charming narrative, and a multifaceted storyline make this a feel-good story with some added spiciness. Plenty of humor and wit keeps the story moving at a steady pace while the usual heart-pinching scenes that are indicative of these stories dot the landscape.
Reading this series is like wrapping up in a soft blanket on a cold day. There is comfort in the familiar and the soft emotional response it elicits. There is a strong inspirational tone that has in my opinion only grown deeper since the beginning of the series but it matches the world in which it is set. Small towns are often built on the faith of its residents and that faith is what sustains them during the bad times while giving them cause to rejoice during the good times.
Having met the protagonists in earlier books, I enjoyed getting to spend more quality time with Peanut and Ruby. Peanut, the town lawyer, has been in love with Rudy, who owns the Curl Up and Dye hair salon, for a while now. He had been playing her secret admirer but her near-death experience forced him to declare him and now these two are courting one another. They are both strong, kind, intelligent people who, despite the trials and tribulations of their lives, remain strong in faith and heart.
As this relationship has been developing over a course of a few years, starting out as a friendship only to develop into something deeper, the physical aspects occur a little faster then some may expect. Peanut helps Rudy to heal physically and mentally from her assault, allowing them both to move forward with their romance. Using Peanut and Ruby romance as the base, Sala introduces some new residents to the town while taking others in new directions. You just have to have the courage to walk through it.
Watching each person this little town find their footing place is fun to watch and Sala does a wonderful job of continuing to define and develop the various relationships of the town. I did feel Sala manipulated the events in order to exploit the emotional tone of the book. Regardless, fans of Sala and small towns filled with southern charm and huge hearts are sure to enjoy her latest story which tells us all second chances belong to all those who have the courage to reach for them.

When those feelings are found to be reciprocated, look out! Watching how they deal with her past while hoping for a future was both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Seeing the support of her friends was touching.

There are family and friends and the community as a whole that pulls together in the time of need. There are many stories being told and all are woven seamlessly together. There is a depth to the characters and small town living is depicted — both the good and the bad. Sala writes from the heart with well-developed plots and characters. I will be adding many of her books, not just the ones in this series, to my always growing TBR pile. Jan 27, Becky Condit rated it it was amazing.

Peanut is in his 40s, never married, and has no family. When Ruby is the victim of a terrible crime Peanut realizes he has to step out of his shell and declare his intentions to Ruby before he loses her. There are many other characters in this story. Some are background people, others move forward and become secondary characters with their own stories to tell. In Blessings good things come almost as fast as bad things and for Melissa, a godsend saves her. There are deaths and weddings and as in most small towns they are intertwined.

Sala weaves minor stories into the major storyline of Ruby and her secret admirer. If you are looking for feel good story, this book is for you.

But true love wins out in the end. This book is very uplifting but has some dark and down moments, but it is what adds complexity to the book. There are some lessons that everyone can take away from this book, especially in how to treat someone. If you have not read this series, definitely start with the first book as each book builds on the last one. Feb 14, Tina rated it liked it Shelves: audiobook , romance-contemporary , reads. It is nicely soapy.
This one features a main couple whose romance catalyst is a kidnapping, but we also get a few side stories including one featuring a woman who comes into an unexpected windfall as well a family who has hit hard times. That said, I can't give these books higher than 3 stars. They are a bit too sweet for my personal taste in places and I would even say this one is inspie adjacent.
Jus 3. Just way to much talking about praying for my taste. Feb 25, Ellen Anderson rated it it was amazing. Loved it! Sharon Sala keeps the citizens of Blessings, Georgia in your mind and heart. What a great book Ruby and Peanut's story is. The pages just keep turning as you can't help but wonder what is going to happen next with all of the wonderful characters in this town. I am, as always, looking forward to the next book and can hardly wait! Apr 24, Carmen rated it it was amazing. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this book! I have loved the Blessings Georgia series from the beginning and this is the latest though there is another coming soon.
Her past comes back t I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this book! And although things go backwards for a moment, Ruby finally gets what she deserves. There are other people you meet in this book as well. The end just leaves you with a feeling of great joy. This is the perfect quiet Sunday afternoon read—the perfect end or beginning to a week. Jan 26, Yvonne Cruz rated it liked it. When given the opportunity to read this book in her Blessing ,GA series, I did not hesitate. It was definitely different from the previous stories I had read by Ms Sala, and I have to confess, I was taken aback.
The style was totally different. Seemed more like a book written by a new YA author and not a seasoned one. It was quirky, and old fashion, and at times the dialogue seem stilled. More like a s Mulberry story with lots of characters thrown together each having their own idiosyncrasy but none fully developed. Sadly, a disappointment. I was gifted this book by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own. Dec 03, Katie babs rated it did not like it. The Color of Love is a strange book.
It's a combination of plot devices that doesn't make sense. A comedy? A drama? The heroine who is 35, and the hero, 10 years older than she, and has the name of Peanut because of his real name- P. Nutt act like they're much older than they are. If I didn't know how old they were, I would assume they were near retirement.

Ruby Dye, the heroine with the ridiculous sounding name is not only attack by her abusive ex-husband, who appears for no rhyme or reason, but his brother who wants to take Ruby out also because she dared to fight back against her ex who kidnapped her and left her bloody and beaten. Peanut, the respects town lawyer, who maybe should be been named Peanut Butter because he comes across as exciting as peanut butter has no real personality, whereas Ruby's personality is too cartoonish and a caricature that makes this small town romance grating on one's nerves because it's too one-dimensional and poorly plotted.
Sharon Sala is a well respected author in the romance genre, but this latest should have not been published as is. The editing that is very much needed is missing here. The overall story is a poor attempt at being quaint and cutesy, which doesn't fit, especially when the heroine is the victim of two criminal men you expect to slink along while twirling their mustaches like some silly cartoon.
A big pass on this one. Apr 08, Donna Repsher rated it it was amazing. The Color of Love is the fifth novel in Sharon Sala's Blessings, Georgia series, and going back to Blessings is always a treat, just like a visit with dear, old friends. In this installment, hair salon owner Ruby Dye is featured, and having grown up in my parents' hair salons, it was a lot like going home.
It also reminded me of the film Steel Magnolias, and Ruby and the cast of characters in this novel are as steel magnolia as it gets, and it gets 5 stars from this reader. If you're following th The Color of Love is the fifth novel in Sharon Sala's Blessings, Georgia series, and going back to Blessings is always a treat, just like a visit with dear, old friends. If you're following this wonderful series, you already learned that Ruby had a secret admirer in the last book, and in this one, we finally find out who he is, but before we learn his identity, Ruby gets an unexpected and unwelcome visit from her abusive ex-husband, who beats her, kidnaps her and plans to kill her.
Thankfully, she escapes, her ex is caught and arrested, and Ruby gets to spend time recuperating from her ordeal at the house of Blessings' only lawyer, Peanut Butterman no, I'm not kidding, and yes, Sharon Sala has quite a sense of humor , which is when Peanut announces that he's her secret admirer, and Ruby echoes her feelings for him, but don't think you're even close to their happily ever after yet.
This novel also has concurrent subplots galore, each one a gem, from Ruby discovering a destitute family and marshaling the townspeople to help them, the death of an elderly man from Blessings and the settling of his estate--his 3 greedy heirs getting their comeuppance, a long-time employee at the hardware store being a victim of nepotism and being let go after working there for 19 years, an old lady missing from her nursing home and the search for her, and that's just for starters.
There's also the brother of Ruby's ex-husband, who's been called upon to finish the job her incarcerated ex-husband started by killing Ruby, and Peanut coming to her rescue and stopping her from being shot by taking the bullet meant for her instead, and then losing his memory as a result--and that's not even the end of things for Ruby and Peanut either.
There are lots of ups and downs in this novel, but through it all, the people of Blessings are there for each other, and to call this novel and this fictional town heartwarming is the understatement of the year. Through all the trials and tribulations of these wonderfully drawn characters is the most amazing feeling of community in Blessings, Georgia--a place where everyone knows everyone else, everyone is willing to pitch in and help, and where even the gossip mill is kind.
It's the kind of place that warms the heart, and if, by the end of this charming novel you don't wish you could move there yourself, I think you need to re-examine your value system. If you're not already addicted to this series, I'd suggest starting at the beginning, but no matter which of these five novels your start with, I think you'll fall in love with Blessings, Georgia too.
I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of t his novel. The opinions expressed are my own. View 1 comment. Feb 06, Barb Lie rated it it was amazing. Having read all the books in this series, I was looking forward to reading The Color of Love, as Ruby Dye is the heroine. Ruby has been from the start, the heart of everyone in Blessings, Georgia, as she is always the one who will help them when in need.
She is the one everyone loves, as they know they can always count on Ruby. Now this is her story, and it was awesome from start to finish. In the last book, we learned that Ruby has a secret admired in town, and she prays its Peanut Butterman the local lawyer. Before he can tell her how he feels, and he is her secret admirer, Ruby is attacked and brutally beaten by her ex-husband. She manages to escape, and hurt her ex, who is then captured.
Everyone in town comes forth to help Ruby, and in no time she is able to return to her salon, and helping others. She is also thrilled to know that Peanut loves her, and soon their romance becomes known and the town is happily congratulating them. The wonderful town will support Ruby, who will force herself to get back to work and help others. There are also two side stories that are nicely done, especially with the great people of Blessings. When Peanut suffers a seizure that once again puts him close to death, Ruby prepares herself for his loss.
Blessings, Georgia is a wonderful small town, with great characters, and couples that you always root hard for. Sharon Sala writes another fabulous story that had us hooked from the start. She amazes me that she continually gives us such great couples that we become invested in, with each and every book.
