Remember the saying "April Showers Bring May Flowers" ?
Rainstorms are common in Spring and Summer and with them sometimes you can catch a glimpse of a rainbow like this photo taken during the storm this past weekend.
Rainbows are a visual reminder of God's promise to us. Here is the Message Bible version of just one of many promises... so when you see a rainbow in the midst of a storm this spring or summer, remember God's many promises to us :)
Genesis 9:12-17 (The Message)
12-16 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. From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud, I'll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will flood waters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I'll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth."
17 And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I've set up between me and everything living on the Earth."
Blessings to all,
