It has been pouring rain here in "sunny" southern California. A few days ago after a particularly bad day at work I got into my car to drive home and grumbled at the weather. "How appropriate" I thought as the gloom reflected my mood. Then, suddenly I saw it or rather them. Not one but two rainbows flashing colorfully in the sky. A sign perhaps. A gentle whispering from God. I'm still here. I care.

"
God continued, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I'm putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth."
-Genesis 9:12-16

Very nice post. God always provides a rainbow during our stormy, rainy days. It is our responsibility to accept it, though.
God bless you today, too!

Thanks for the great post. I'm always seeking God in my days, and thanking Him for His presence.

"He leads me beside still waters,
he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake... You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me." - Psalm 23
