WHEN I left school I worked in a general engineering workshop because a colour perception defection problem precluded me from a career in the electronic sector.
To some, colour blindness means that; they can only see black and white whilst my problem is with reds, browns and greens so playing snooker can be awkward and can give many points to my opponent. That is way I haven’t played the game for many years.
Incidentally, I do know the difference in the road traffic light system.
Today I have being checking out my model railway in the garden ready for our annual charity fund raise at the end of November and I have had to carry out some remedial work on the electric wiring, which I did successfully.
Colours feature on numerous occasions in the Bible and early on, after Noah and his family and the animals came out of the Ark following the flood, God made a wonderful promise.
He said, “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”
Then, as He gave us the Rainbow, He said to Noah, “This is the sign of the promise I am making between me and you and every living creature with you. I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the promise between me and the earth”.
Remember that promise as we once again celebrate our Harvest Festivals and let us give thanks.
