I have always had a thing for rainbows..
They are so beautiful. I believe it is God's way of telling us, that although we will face the rains, the rainbows too will come our way.
There was a saying I found on a sticker after my daughter was born. After our daughter endured so much with her open heart surgery as an infant..we were so worried about her future...The sticker said just a few short words,
"After the Rain the Rainbow"
It's almost as if God promises us that it will all be ok after all.
I have always held tightly onto that saying in my heart, for it seems that each event that passes in my life that seems too difficult, eventually we do get through it.
After all..if you wait, the rainbow does appear after the rain. You just have to look for it!~
On our drive home from a long journey the past couple of days for the funeral of a very dear friend of ours..we drove through a bad storm. Then the skies opened up, and the sun peeked through. My son said from the back seat "Hey! Look out the window~" There to our surprise was a pretty rainbow.
Perhaps a promise that our dear friend is indeed in the arms of Jesus.
