We have had sunshine, rain, sunshine, and a little more rain the last few days. After Wednesday's rain, I walked into the kitchen and glanced out my window as usual. The photo above is what I saw.
All thoughts of what I was going to the kitchen for were forgotten as I grabbed my camera and made a mad dash out the door to get a better look at this most beautiful rainbow that appeared to be taller than I've ever seen! It was incredible and so large that I couldn't get the whole rainbow in my viewfinder. It was also a double rainbow which you might have noticed in the first photo.
Here's the other end that didn't get captured with my little Elph camera. After a few clicks, I just stood and gazed at this awesome sight and I thought of God's promise when he set the bow in the sky.
I also thought of many promises I've made....some I've kept and some I've broken. We can be assured that God always keeps his promises. He sent his son to die for our sins and raised him up again on the third day so that we who believe in him will not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus said, "For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” John 6:40
That is what Easter is all about. Not getting baskets of candy or shopping for the perfect outfit to wear to church or coloring eggs. Those things are fun and part of our celebrations, but we must remember the real reason we celebrate Easter. He Is Risen! Amen.
I wish each of you a most wonderful and blessed Easter holiday! I will see you next week.
