This morning, as I read my devotions, the passage was Psalm 8, and the reading was an encouragement to revel in the wonder of creation. I was reminded of a recent moment in time when God's creation and promises shone brightly in front of me. I'm hoping I can give you a word description that will help you to see what I saw.
DH and I were driving home from Vancouver area, so travelling east, later in the afternoon and the sun was setting behind us. It had been raining quite heavily. In the south we spotted a rainbow, as usual arcing up and disappearing at the top. Then we noticed the rainbow rising up from the north and meeting at the top. It's not often that one sees a complete rainbow. But as if that wasn't miracle enough: a little further down the road, the rainbow was reflected on its west side. Two rainbows, complete arcs, colors as brilliant as if somebody had taken crayons and drawn the arcs and filled them in. The second rainbow was slightly shadowed as if reflected in a still lake, but still each color was individual and distinct.
We marvelled at the site - wondering once again at God's goodness to us individually and to the world as a whole, revelling in the promise of eternity that is contained in the rainbow, and glorying in the fact that God gave us this special few moments in time. My heart was filled with awe and praise for the wonder of the world that God has given us.
May God bless you all, and give you all moments that encourage and uplift you.
