Somewhere Over the Rainbow

When the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the covenant between me and earth. 
                                                                    Genesis 9:16

Today was a very strange weather day. One minute it was sunny, the next minute it was raining. The sun would warm the air then the rain would immediately cool the air. At one point this afternoon it even hailed!

Just as the sun was setting, I was finishing the preparations for dinner and realized it was sunny with a steady rain falling outside! I knew this was the perfect scenario for a rainbow to form. (I have been known to chase rainbows!)  Emily and I raced for the front door and sure enough....a double blessing was awaiting us outside! What a blessing to see it's enormous size covering both horizons! Emily and I squealed in delight and proudly snapped this picture as proof of our amazing experience!

We made such noise outside about seeing this double rainbow that Josh came running upstairs from the basement because he thought the house was on fire! I will not apologize for not being able to contain my joy when witnessing such a beautiful display from our Creator!

Seeing this miracle right outside our front door was such a gift and beautiful reminder of the power and majesty of our Savior.
