TODAY THE WORDS are RAINBOWS OF LIFE and it could be a great day to move forward in our lives. We are not promised rainbows every day. As a matter of fact, if we did see rainbows every day we would start to diminish in our minds the spectacular view of a rainbow. I think most of us are mesmerized by the colors, and we know that science can explain why the colors are formed……yes, I get that…..but what I get by believing in Our Higher Power is the rainbow is one of His Gifts to the world. What about the rare times we see a double rainbow? Wow, we relay this experience to everyone we see that day! It seems a rainbow is the signal there is a change coming our way after a dark, and sometimes dreary experience. Usually, when a child starts drawing pictures, they will paint a rainbow. Think about your children’s pictures in the early years and you will reflect rainbows frequently appearing. This reflects a happy memory, colorful and exciting. Dreamers will refer to others, “When I find my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” meaning good fortune will come to them. Several children’s charities, Rainbow Trust and Rainbows Children’s Hospice (I believe both of these great charities are in the UK), use the rainbow in their logo, reflecting hope and beautiful skies. My point of this message is that sometimes we have to have the darkness to see how brilliant the light is; sometimes we need the rain before the rainbow; sometimes we need the tears before the laughter of relief from that pain; and sometimes we need to hurt before we can love without condition. God furnishes us a palette of emotions; it is how we combine those emotions to create a beautiful portrait of life. Like the ole saying, “You gotta take the bad with the good!” I feel this is how life matures us and prepares us for the total appreciation of what we receive in the form of rainbows. Live life to the fullest , love life and in life, love!! Look for the rainbows, try to not dwell on the storms of life, and during some time in your life, look to the skies and Heaven for the real pot of gold which is eternal life with God and loved ones.
DAILY FEATURED BIBLE VERSE:
And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth
