Rainbow Blessings

The color Orange is rare in a rainbow. That is, it's more obscure than say, purple or yellow. Some of the most beautiful things in life are not always the obvious. One day a lady came up to my gospel tent wheeling a bent and deformed young woman in a wheelchair. Because she could not look up, and therefore I couldn't see her face, I assumed that it was impossible to communicate with her.

The other lady and I carried on a conversation for while about the what it means to be “born again” – a question I often put to people who stop by to see what I'm all about. I was showing her one of my banners inside the tent which asked the question, “Are you 50, 75, or 100% sure you're on your way to Heaven?” when I heard a sound coming from the direction of the wheelchair. It took me a minute to realize the younger woman was speaking. I asked her what she had said.

Straining to make her voice louder, she thanked me for being there and for doing what I was doing. I said, “ Are you a believer?”

“Yes.” she answered. “I know I'm going to heaven someday and I'm looking forward to it.” She attempted a smile that drew my heart toward her.

“God bless you, I would appreciate your prayers for me as I continue in this ministry.” I said. And as I thanked them for stopping by, I knew that although the older lady was not interested in talking further the younger woman – in spite of her outward unapproachable appearance and obvious suffering, would be praying for her and maintaining a witness before her.

Glad that the "orange" showed up in this rainbow of life. The most "unexpected" people can share God's love.

Hmmm, I'm trying to figure out how the young lady's handicap figures into the obscurity question of orange? A little expansion of what you are trying to get across would be helpful. You definitely have more words to use before meeting the word count limit. Keep writing.
