Color Quiz

I visited a new friend, Keely, and took the Color Quiz from there. It was most peculiar. As an artist, I agree that color choice reflects your mood but I am still shocked at how well this pegged me.

You see, I've been going through a lot of turmoil with my parents these past two months. If you remember back in March, they bought a new house and wanted my family and me to move in with them. It was a great idea. The house is divided well enough to give us all a lot of privacy. Well, I'm not sure what went wrong. My parents have not been able to sell their other house on the lake (they still live there and were planning to move when it sold), they are pressured monetarily . We pay the same amount of rent to them as we did when we rented a home of our own.

But they are scared.

We didn't have a fight or anything but last month they emailed Dave and me to tell us that they have decided to sell the house we are in as well. They have decided that they want to move back to California after the houses sell. They told us that it was all a mistake and that we are not compatible. They also judged our spiritual walk (we go to a Baptist church, whereas they go to an Assembly of God church) and feel that we are lacking. They say they sense a bad spirit when they come into the house and they cannot live like that. They also told us that we have a different kind of lifestyle from them.

I'm not positive as to all they refer to. They do not know me nor my husband as well as they think they do. It is so sad.

Anyway, I have had some major battles with stress from all this. I know that I shouldn't worry. I do feel assured that God will provide. He will not forsake us...there must be something better in store for us. But the bad feelings I have for them are overwhelming me. I wrote a little about it on this Bible study post.

Okay, so now that you know a bit of what I've been going through, let me post what this color test said about me. I am truly amazed:

Your Existing Situation

Imaginative and sensitive; seeking an outlet for these qualities--especially in the company of someone equally sensitive. Interest and enthusiasm are readily aroused by the unusual or the adventurous.

Your Stress Sources

Wants freedom to follow her own convictions and principles, to achieve respect as an individual in her own right. Desires to avail herself of every possible opportunity without having to submit to limitations or restrictions.

Your Restrained Characteristics

Willing to become emotionally involved. Trying to calm down and unwind after a period of over-agitation which has left her listless and devoid of energy. In need of peace and quiet; becomes irritable if this is denied her.

Your Desired Objective

Needs a peaceful environment. Wants release from stress, and freedom from conflicts or disagreement. Takes pains to control the situation and its problems by proceeding cautiously. Has sensitivity of feeling and a fine eye for detail.

Your Actual Problem

Does not wish to be involved in differences of opinion, contention or argument, preferring to be left in peace. Your Actual Problem #2 Wants to be valued and respected, and seeks this from a close and peaceful association of mutual esteem.

Thank you for using Color Quiz.

Wow, that's really incredible. I have other friends who have had some interesting results from the color test, too.

Keep on keepin' on. This will all work out.

Sorry you're going through a rough patch right now, MC...I remember how happy you were when all of this started. Who knows? Maybe it's for the best.

I'll have to take the color quiz. It looks pretty interesting.

Lord, please send a buyer for the old house and give Mimi and her family perfect peace and security.

I’ve been in your parent’s situation myself. It took 4 years for the old house to sell, we nearly lost everything..., and I mean everything.

I didn't know you were having problems with the house. I remember how good it sounded when you first brought it up. I'm sorry it didn't work out. Sending my prayers along with the others.

I agree; colours can set moods.

I'm so sorry, Mimi! What a mess.

I pray that this situation will end in the best way for you and your parents, and that they'll see more of what you have in common, rather than just focus on the differences.

Hang in there, Mimi. You are a child of God!

I'm so sorry things aren't working out with the living situation, and that these "problems" couldn't have been forseen before moving, and I'm really sorry regarding the problems from denomination differences. That is truly unfortunate, for we are all one Body.

God does provide.
