Thunderstorms and Rainbows

After a particularly noisy summer thunderstorm, the sun again shone brightly and the sky took on a golden hue.

Looking out my second floor window, I saw a spectacular double rainbow that seemed to begin at a church spire on a distant sun drenched hillside and end behind my neighbor's house.

I grabbed my Kodak Instamatic and snapped several pictures of this awesome sight from my upstairs vantage point. When I got the developed photos back, there indeed were the rainbows, but they were eclipsed by various power lines and the assorted hard edged shapes and angles of the neighbors' rooftops. They were obstructions I hadn't even noticed because I was totally focused on the beauty of God's miraculous display.

Those pictures helped me to realize how easily we overlook the blessings in life due to an "obstructed view", because not all of our blessings are so spectacular or attention getting as a double rainbow arching through a golden sky.

Some of our blessings arrive as a handshake, a phone call, a letter, a loving touch, or the simplest of gestures given or received midst the daily complexities and obstructions of life.

The next time that you are the recipient of one of these "simple" gestures, consider that it might be a personal rainbow, a gift of love that begins in God's heart and ends in yours.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
