Rainbows. They are in fairy tales, enchanted princess tales, and Wizard of Oz tales. However, my favorite rainbow story goes right to the Sorce - the Bible. Genesis 6:8 says "Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord". Noah pleased God, so he and his family were saved. Then in Genesis 9:13, God tells Noah "I have set my rainbow in the cloud as a covenant between Me and the earth". Wow-most people think of rainbows as just light reflection, but I think of God and the beginning of the world. I love the story of Noah (hence my son's name), and I love rainbows. I used to love drawing them on my pictures. I used to think I could find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Now I just enjoy seeing their beauty and thinking of all of God's promises and know that He ALWAYS keeps His promises. It is something I can "bank on".
This morning has been all about thunder storms and rain showers. I looked out the back door and it was raining, then I looked out the front door and the sun was shining and this rainbow was in the sky.
