Cherry Bloosoms

Tuesday, October 12, 2010


Today on the way home from my new job (temporary though), the sky was so dark. Gray does not describe it. The down pour was over and as I wound my way through the "Napa Valley-like area of Birmingham" as a friend so affectionately put it the other day, back towards all of suburbia, there was a bright spot of trees glowing amongst the shadows. I looked and looked. Where was God's promise? I continued on the two-lane to my designated intersection and as I pulled in the turn lane and stopped. I looked up.

WOW!!! I haven't seen a rainbow like that in a while! Well, Adam and I saw a full one this summer but this one was more than full. It threw me in a trance that said, "Come follow me. Find me pot-o-gold. Go under and have fun." Well, under would have been towards the trafficked interstate and rain. As I sat there in awe, I didn't even have to count. I could see ALL THE COLORS OF THE RAINBOW. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet!!!! ROY-G-BIV as I so fondly learned as a child. Special Ed and Navy; well I just can't help but live and breathe acronyms. But, I digress....

The rainbow was the widest I've ever seen! And I don't mean from side to side, but it was, hummm...fat! Beautifully full-bodied colors blending together stretching across the sky for God to say, "Remember!"

And then I turned left and headed on home.
