Just after we arrived at the hotel today from the hospital, it poured rain for about 10 minutes. As we stepped outside again, we saw this rainbow...
To be honest, I'm pretty sure it's been well over a year since I've seen a rainbow, and considering that rainbows don't happen in January in NC, we definitely paused for a few minutes to watch.
Rainbows are meant to remind those who see them of the promises of God, and, as we smiled at this rainbow, the day before Gwyneth's first birthday, I couldn't help but be reminded of a particular promise that God has made to Tricia and I:
"I came so you can have real and eternal life,
more and better life than you ever dreamed of."
(John 10:10b - The Message)
Promises are usually made before the storm.
Rainbows are usually seen after the storm.
The three of us have been given a life more abundant than we could ever think of or ask for. I pray that this year, you might experience that same abundance of life.
