The Rainbow - Sign of Hope?

Rainbows in Fall, Rainbows over Bldg. Rainbows are for everyone.

Like everyone I'm always so delighted when I see a rainbow. I try to take a pic if I see one. I remember from the Bible that a rainbow is a sign of hope to hearten the people. After the Great Flood their was a rainbow. The other day I even saw a double and very intense rainbow as we drove into our building but by the time I could get in a spot to take a photo, it had faded and disappeared so fast. I always do feel better if it's a disappointing time in my life and hope the rainbow is telling me things will get better. And usually it does. The picture is of another rainbow I took not long ago in early September.

I once followed a rainbow to its end to see if I could find the pot of gold. I did find it, sort of...the rainbow ended at a liquor store! haha

I love seeing rainbows and especially double rainbows. A double one appeared behind my son and his new wife on their wedding day but now I can't find the photo to show you.

I've only seen a double rainbow in pictures, never seen them in real life. Must be an amazing sight. That's a very beautiful shot.

Rainbows to me appear like a gift from God. The pop up so suddenly and look so amazing! Rainbows will put a positive light after a rainy day
