Under the Rainbow

God said: This is the sign of the covenant that I am making between me and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.  When I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and every living creature—every mortal being—so that the waters will never again become a flood to destroy every mortal being.  When the bow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature—every mortal being that is on earth.

Genesis 9:12-16


We had a series of storms blow through last night and during one of the breaks, we had the luxury of this beautiful sight.  It seems to happen often that we see a complete rainbow out the back of our house.  I joke that anyone who lives in that log cabin must be blessed to always be living under the rainbow!  My kids, of course, always wonder if they can find the pot of gold.  I was reminded of the above passage and the testament of God's love.
