Although it is a bit cold in some mornings, the dry spell has actually arrived. The river I pass by each day is totally dried up. One can cross the river without getting his feet wet. Ain't that a thought? But alas, there was a slight, very slight drizzle the other day. And by some wonders, the heavens displayed a beautiful rainbow. My daughter was in awe at such a sight. She said That's the sign, mommy,of God's amazing love. Have you seen many rainbows? I have seen many and I couldn't remember anymore the last count. So I had always been assured that life will be better tomorrow. That is God's promise. Life is good today. I am happy.

Do you see the rainbow as a sign of god's love?That is poetic indeed to narrate it like that.Well,I live in a hot country and rainy days are boons for us.And I have seen a lot of rainbows in my life but I didn't have a count on them.Recently,I happened to take a snap of a rainbow which I add to this post.Just enjoy and give feed backs.

I don't count either but I think somewhere in our planet, a rainbow appears everyday. I have seen double rainbows in perfect arcs. I can even differentiate indigo from blue and violet, ha ha. Don't you ever wonder why there is no indigo in the basic crayon colors? Someone must tell the crayon company to look at the rainbow so we can have indigo in our art materials. Yes, the rainbow is a sign of God's enduring love for me.

Is it?Rainbows daily somewhere around the world?that would be nice to see.And I have seen this double rainbows too.But that is not an actual double thing as I thought first.Looking into the rainbows keenly,I saw that one is the actual one and the other is its reflection.So,the next time,if you happen to see a double one,observe it carefully.

Yes, rainbows signify hope. No matter the turmoil we experience in life, hope springs eternal. You are also a heaven watcher! The cumulus clouds are majestic today. It is bright and sunny. But last night, the moon was full. It was not as big as last month's but it was still beautiful. God is great for giving us heavenly sights, ain't He?

Hi cher913, ain't that most amazing, capturing God's communication with us in a photograph! You are truly blessed! Not only did you see God's glory, you also printed that image for many to believe.

Hi, eileenleyva. I have seen many rainbows in my life. I can't count how many they were. But my kids adore rainbows, they think they are very neat. And, I feel at peace when I see them. It makes me know that God is real and that he loves and cares for us all.

Hi cream97, I hang on to that promise whenever I receive devastating news, as in the Haiti quake, and the massive flooding almost all over the world. God actually keeps smiling at us, peeping through the rainbow. And I know that He has beautiful tomorrows for our children.

hie eileen its me from soggy California where its still raining and more threatened. I will be glad to see this rainbow for sure. I am a senior citizen so have seen many rainbows too. God's promise to us we will never flood out again. they are so beautiful too. I have never counted them. I am glad life is good for you today. its not that good for a lot of us, my son is still out of work, I am stillhere in Gold Crest where I dont want to be, but I am happy each day as I make my self happy. each day is a new gift from God and he will help us yet I am sure.

Hi Hatley, I did have a glimpse of the Southern California rain in the news yesterday. I do hope today is not as bad and that you and your son are safe and warm. Tomorrow, I'm sure, the sun will shine again and you will see another rainbow. But tonight I'll keep a prayer for you.
