A Morning Gift

I was feeling rather lazy this morning so I was lying in bed watching this glorious  sunrise. God is so creative!   I finally couldn't stand it any longer.  I had to try to capture the beauty in a photo.

Of course, when you live in the woods it is difficult to take in all the beauty because of the trees, but still, the pink glow was mesmerizing.  As I walked past the front door to get my camera I saw the whole sky was pink and then I realized there was a most beautiful rainbow stretching across the western sky.  It was a perfect rainbow but I couldn't get far enough away to capture both sides.

 I grabbed my coat & shoes & in my pajamas, I walked out into the horse pasture to get free of the trees so I could have a clearer view.  It was spectacular!!!  What a precious gift!  In the beginning God sent a rainbow as a promise and today He sent another as a testimony of His power and goodness.

 I was reminded of our grandson, Parker's comment when he was about 3 years old.  He was riding in the car with his mom after a rainstorm.  A beautiful rainbow appeared.  He shouted, "Look a rainbow!  I believe in God!"  That is the response I felt this morning.  Who but a loving God would create such beauty for us to enjoy for a moment and then He is on to creating other things?
