Though the little rainbow bird was merely a bright picture painted on white poster board, I loved it and the message printed near the bottom, “Believe in you and you’ll come through with flying colors.” I hung the poster on the door to my workshop where it spoke to my heart every time I looked at it. How I needed to be reminded of that message! How many times had I not followed through with a goal - lose more weight, finish a project around the house, write a story - because I lost belief and faith in myself and floundered. I wished I could fly through a rainbow, especially the one that appears after a particularly hard storm.
Then a dear friend, who was struggling with a life threatening illness but still had a great faith in life, gave me a tiny, heart-shaped prism which I hung in my kitchen window between the white curtains. Everyday when the sun came up and shined through that little heart, several, miniature rainbows, the size of a dime, emerged and danced on the white walls and even on the kitchen table. I caught my breathe when I touched one of the sunny rainbows and the beautiful colors moved onto my fingers. I felt a tiny stirring of hope deep in my soul. God was sending gentle, colorful reminders to believe in myself and in Him.
