Two weeks ago we had a terrible thunderstorm followed by
 a gorgeous bright sky as if the clouds were simply pushed aside.
Everything was so fresh and clean, bathed in clear sunlight.
After a few moments of enjoying the 'clean' green foliage
 of the bushes outside my kitchen windows,
I jumped from the chair and quickly opened the front door.
 And there it was, right over my neighbor's roof top -
a beautiful rainbow, my favorite creation of my Heavenly Father.
The next morning our local newspaper had a picture
of the entire rainbow, end to end, on the front page.
I only saw a small portion of it, but was still thrilled!
Do you love rainbows, too?
God's love for us is awesome and Rainbow's are a sign of the love.
He promised never to destroy the earth with a flood.
He loves us so much He sent His only Son to die for our sins.
John 3:16
Have a blessed week and look for rainbows after a storm!

I still feel the magic of rainbows. Will run outside in the rain to not miss a bit of it and stay out there until it has completely faded away. Thanks for sharing yours,

Yes, I love rainbows and the meaning of them. God's promise that the world will never be destroyed by water again. He did good!
