Rainbows and Sunsets

There was one sweltering July day in Georgia, when our neighbor Hazel gathered all us kids and headed for the public swimming pool in the next town. We were so excited thinking about our afternoon of fun. About the time we got in the pool, a big thunderstorm blew in and she herded us back into the hot humid car. We were some disappointed kids riding home in silence when we rounded the curve at Papa's farm and caught sight of the most vivid rainbow I can ever remember. It stretched from one horizon to the other. An unforgettable sight.

Have you ever walked outside in the evening after a long day to glimpse the sky ablaze with a glorious red sunset? It is like the Lord placed it there just for you, and then had you look up just at the right moment!

The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord.
By the word of the Lord the heavens were made
Psalm 33:5-6

Karen, I believe that it is a gift when we see a rainbow. I received a gift today on your blog, and I appreciate it. Rainbows are spectacular and wonderful and so very special. You didn't get to go swimming that day when you were a kid, but you received a gift as well. :)

Happy Fourth of July, friend.
