The Rainbow

I wonder, sometimes, how many people step out of the grocery store, into the sunshine, and ask, "Where's the rainbow?" Maybe, it's just me, but I love rainbows, and when I get that combination of elements, I start searching!

I looked. I didn't see it. Not enough rain, I decided.

So I loaded my groceries, and headed back to finish my reading for my class. The drops were heavier on my windshield, and as I turned to look for oncoming traffic before turning onto the main road, there it was.


It was bright! Deep, rich colors that lasted and lasted. For nearly ten minutes, I watched the rainbow over my left shoulder.

It doubled at one point. At another moment, I noticed it had made the complete arch. I don't know that I've seen a complete arch before, but tonight, I did.

Periodically, I say "I should carry my camera with me", and this was definitely one of those moments. I snapped a few shots with my phone. Compared to the real thing, they were incomplete.

They didn't capture it - not at all.

Thank You God for the undeniable rainbow and for Your undeniable presence in my life.
