A message during a rainstorm

It was a terrific rainstorm with such a hard downpour that small rivers ran down both sides of our street. But the air was warm, and the kids wanted to play in the rain. As soon as it was safe, we ran outside to splash in the puddles. As we played, the most beautiful rainbow appeared at the end of our street.

I love rainbows. As soon as I see a hint of sunlight during a rain, I am outside in an instant, looking for those brilliant colors in the sky. However, this time we could not see the sun. It was still raining, and thunder could be heard in the distance. But the sight of the rainbow was all we needed in order to know that the storm was passing and the sun would soon appear.

As I stood admiring this phenomenon, I was struck by how often God’s love had shown itself to me—through inspiration that had come when needed, sometimes right in the midst of a stormy situation—helping me feel the presence of divine Love and bringing me healing, safety, and protection.
