Today I share with you the color ORANGE. It is, if not my favorite,

it is right there at the top of the list ... I enjoy feed-back and

comments - you may leave those in my guest book. It is in the

menu at the top of the page. "Thank you"


Orange Cake with Orange Glaze

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 small box of orange gelatin
1 cup orange juice (the kind you drink)
3/4 cup oil
4 eggs
2-3 tsp orange zest (see note below)

1 cup powdered sugar
3 tbl orange juice
1 tsp orange zest

Heat oven to 325
Beat cake mix, dry gelatin, orange juice, oil eggs and zest in a large bowl on low speed 30 seconds,
then on medium speed for 2 minutes or so. Pour into a generously greased bundt pan.
Bake for 1 hour.
Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Meanwhile, whisk the powdered
sugar, orange juice and zest in a small bowl. After you move the cake to the
serving plate and while the cake is still warm, prick the cake with a fork.
Pour glaze evenly over the cake. Allow the cake to completely cool before serving.

NOTE: ---- ZEST:  Its the very outer skin of an orange. You rub the orange on a zester or on

the smallest holes of a cheese grater to get the orange coloring off.
 Just make sure you dont get too much of the white part
of the skin. The white is more bitter where
as the orange part is more pleasant.

Yesterday is gone, but its experiences will be reflected in those of today.

We learned from both the good and the bad situations of yesterday. Where we travel

today, likewise, will influence our direction we take tomorrow. We can't do over what has

gone before, but we can positively incorporate all that life is

offering us from this very moment forth

You need never to go back in time again and if you do, just recall those memories

you love. They will nourish you always. Remember however your destiny lies

in the days ahead of you. Be certain they will bring to you all that you

desire, and more ....

When feeling anguish, remember it is making our spirits whole.

Combine it with laughter and it can be the healer of the soul.

It can lift our loads at the same time it burdens. Most importantly,

it prepares us to better receive life's other gifts ....

Speaking of anguish. If you can ever help another face some anguish they may be feeling.

Do so. It brings people together. It softens you. And it makes way for the

laughter soon to come, you will see ....

Think about this ....

Happiness is a byproduct of an effort to make someone else happy.

~ Gretta Brooker Palmer

Do not wait to be loved today. Go ahead and love someone else, fully.

Don't doubt that you too, are loved. You will feel it. Everyone sometime,

someplace and somehow will find unconditional love.

Remain focused and positive ....


Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck's color is orange. I have been told that if a change of any kind is need in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights.

Orange Energy

While red is associated with fiery heat, orange is associated with the benign warmth of the sun. A dynamic color to be sure, orange offers a more thoughtful control than explosive red. Curiosity is a driving characteristic of orange, and with it comes exploration of new things.

Put some orange in your life when you want:

  • to spice things up when you feel time is dragging
  • to become more involved in something
  • to increase creativity
  • relief from things becoming too serious

Orange gem stone properties

Orange gemstones contain some of the fiery energies of red, but are gentler with a more creative spirit. They are used to promote personal power and are useful for people who could use more self esteem. Carry or place orange gemstones around your home or office to stimulate creativity, mental quickness, ability to adjust to changes.

Wearing Orange

Wearing orange during times of stress, or shock can help to balance your emotions. It can bring about the willingness to embrace new ideas with enjoyment and a sense of exploration and creative play.

All your children shall be taught

by the LORD, And great shall

be the peace of your children.

Isaiah 54:13

I hope you have enjoyed all the orange things! I would like to do more color pages

in the future. They take me a bit longer but I don't mind as long as I am not pushed

for time. Have a great weekend and I will be back on Monday.

Always remember to stay safe - be aware of everything and everyone around you.
