rainbow photo by kirsten16 october 2007
Ah, the rainbow. Beautiful. Secret? I love the rain too. The sound, the feel, the fragrances it stirs up from the earth.
Yay, how pretty! And I just noticed the beautiful new pictures on your sidebar, representing fall. Yay again!
Laura -- I love the rain too! There are no scents like those the rain stirs up from the earth. I also love to listen to it pound down when I'm inside & all else is quiet, the only sound is the rain ... Christianne -- it was so beautiful, I had to capture it! While I miss the summer, autumn is just so intensely & fiercely beautiful in a way summer is not. The autumn photos on the sidebar are some my sis actually took (with the exception of the one at the very top) one morning when she snuck off with my camera. With shots like those, I'm glad she did!
What a great picture. What a great reminder of God's promise to his people. After all the lamenting for Charity and all the news that is not so good in our lives, here is a visual representation of God and his promises. Cool indeed. I love the rain as well. I would live in a shack with a tin roof in the mountains if I could just so I could hear the rain hit the roof.
Read your other blog - know you aren't taking comments/etc, but wanted to say that I am interested as you continue this process. Thanks for being willing to share.
lovely, kirsten! and i love the quote from G. K. Chesterton that you have in your heading.....
Gyrovague -- thanks for visiting again. I, too, thought of Charity when I saw that rainbow. God's promises are precious indeed, and especially important to remember during trials. I know when life is difficult I tend to see God in light of my circumstances instead of the other way around. I pray that God may grant Charity the grace to trust Him and rely on Him for every ounce of strength during this time. How much I have to learn!Ilse -- Thank you. Glad to know you are reading and I look forward to sharing more. It helps me, and I hope that in some small way, it blesses you.Blue -- Isn't that a great quote? I love the idea of God creating the same things over and over again, but never getting tired of it, but displaying childlike enthusiasm in His every individual creation. How many rainbows has He made since the first? Yet how much He must delight in them!
