It rained the other day. As the mist was coming down, the sun was still shining so my friend and I were looking around outside – wondering if there would be a rainbow in the sky. Sure enough. We spotted it.
The defraction of light was stunning – like a prism projecting its beauty across the heavens.
A meteorology professor at Penn State once declared that every rainbow is personal. The rainbow that you see is your own specific rainbow – stimulating your retina and no one else’s in the exact same manner.
At the conclusion to the biblical story of Noah’s Ark, God placed a beautiful rainbow in the sky as a reminder to all living things that he would never flood the Earth again.
The rainbow is God’s covenant with the world. Like the calm after the storm.
