This past Friday was rainy and dreary. I had been sad all day because of thinking about John.

But when I was going to get Elizabeth from work I had prayed a little prayer that God would give me hope.

I looked over to the East and there was this beautiful Rainbow..It had divided the sky with its color. It was breathtaking. I immediately pulled over and took a picture. I also took a picture of the sky next to it.

Then I looked to my left and the dark sky had parted and there was this beautiful ribbon of light emanating from it.

I said a silent prayer of thanks to God. He never leaves or forsakes us even when everyone else does. He will not...

I leave you with this quote:

The risk that may break you, may be the risk that will save you too.
Author unknown

If you have been having a hard time lately. Don't give up. God cares and so do I.

He hears every prayer you say whether you feel like He does or not. Please believe that...

Nothing better than a sunset! And a rainbow how unusual, looks like a sign to me.

What a beautiful post! And God is so like that. He is there with us and just when we think we can't make it through, He shows up and wraps His arms around us with love.

Awesome displays for God to say he's there aren't they?

I have been so busy lately that I haven't visited my favorite blogs - i.e. yours - in a week.

I am very touched by your post. I am sending you a hug through the Internet. I am grateful that you felt comforted from the Lord. He is Great and Good.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings and for your wonderful faith.

God bless you!
