Born of the Shower, and Colored by the Sun


I wasn't planning on posting today. But just as I was sitting in front of my computer, suddenly there was a ping! An email came in. From whom? God. Seriously? Yes, He was online.

Ok, it was actually from a friend. But I believe there's a reason for the email. He just wanted to share a poem on rainbows. Rainbows?

A sudden memory of recent events came to mind. It has been a rough time lately. Many gloomy days. But one early morning changed that. It was barely seven when I walked into the kitchen and the sight of not one but two rainbows caught my eyes. Two lovely arches across the sky outside my kitchen window (1st picture below : The one on the left is more visible than the one on the right).

Seeing the rainbows made me feel so light. But in a matter of time I was back to carrying more rocks LOL!

The second rainbow appeared a few weeks later. It was again just after seven and almost at the same spot from my kitchen window (2nd picture below).

What a comfort! I remember doing a thankful post on a rainbow before here. Now I feel so much lighter again.

I'm thankful for God's glowing covenant. Are you?

O beautiful rainbow; all woven of light!

There's not in thy tissue one shadow of night;

Heaven surely is open when thou dost appear.

And, bending thee above, the angels draw near,

And sing - "The rainbow! The rainbow! The smile of God is here"

Sarah Josepha Hale.

Bright pledge of peace and sunshine!
The sure tie of thy Lord's hand, the object of His eye!
When I behold thee, though my light be dim, Distinct, and low,
I can in thine see Him Who looks upon thee from His glorious throne,
And minds the covenant between all and One.
Henry Vaughan


I'm thankful that I woke up LS woke up early this morning. Since she had ample time, she made some sausages for me. Yummy! The smell of grilling sausages made me so excited that I kept going round and round LS. She said I'm one crazy dog.

Yeah, when we go round and round in circles, we are crazy. But when planets do it, they are orbiting. Sounds familiar?

Does this dog look crazy?

Territory Mom said...

Rainbow is one of the first words my son said. He saw a rainbow one day and yelled, "rainbow". It was God letting me know he was going to be allright.

Jerralea said...

Isn't it neat when God gives you a little reminder that He cares about us? Sorry you've had a rough time lately, but glad you got to see some rainbows!

Lovely pics of the rainbows. It's great to see two! I remember reading somewhere that if we fly high enough - maybe it has to be into space - we can not only see our one and only planet spread out below us, but if there were a rainbow, we could see the whole circle.

Thor said...
