Rancho De Colores
Is a Rustic Wedding & Special Events center located just outside of College Station Texas. This beautiful 163 acres is the perfect place to have your wedding or celebrate any type of special occasion & take advantage of the beautiful Texas outdoor scenery that God has blessed us all with.
“De Colores” is borrowed from the Mexican folklore song, which expresses the joy of living and exhalts the beauties of creation. It was readily adopted by the first cursillistas as a reflection of their inner feelings after they truly experienced God’s presence. The story goes like this… a group of Christians were on a bus trip traveling to a place where they intended to experience God. Along the way, a severe storm traps them in the middle of the journey and they find themselves alone, and probably a little nervous too! At the right time, in the midst of the pouring rain and the failing expectation of completing the journey, the rain stops and they look out the window and finally notice the beautiful scenery of colorful flowers that they had been too busy to notice during their travels. Also, a rooster revealing his magnificent iridescent feathers in the sunlight captivates their attention. They become humbled by the Rooster’s natural ability to reveal God’s glory of being a rooster, right where he was. The cursillistas are overwhelmed by the undeniable realization that God is there with them, and has been the entire trip, and afterwards, the song “De Colores” was written into existence. The realization that we are being loved by God in a way that is unparalleled and unconditional, creates in our inner self, a feeling which is like an incredible rainbow. After this experience, life is not the same; we have a new vision of the world, We act differently and we discover, in the Christian community, the many faces of Christ. Just as a light prism distributes white light into a scale of various colors, so do those who are around us. Everyone of us has a different color, each one reflects an aspect of Christ. And sometimes, it takes a journey away to an unsuspecting place to understand this. It is a joy and an honor to share Rancho De Colores with you.
