Yesterday was cold and rainy and honestly, it felt like pneumonia was in the air. I drove home in the rain, tensing my grip on the steering wheel with each puddle I hit. I was relieved to arrive at the comfort of my home, awaiting a hot dinner and two playful kittens to cuddle.
Before dinner Mom kept leaving the stove to look for one of our kittens. Ringing cat toys and clanking food dishes failed to fetch the attention of the curious feline and Mom and I started to get nervous that he may have gotten stuck somewhere.
Out of desperation, Mom decided to look out the front door, and to her amazement, a double rainbow shone in the sky. We could see the rainbows from end to end and the first one was the brightest and most vibrant rainbow I’ve ever seen.
As we took pictures, I was reminded of the glory and the beauty of God. The sight also made me think of the first rainbow in the Bible after Noah’s flood and how it was a manifestation of God’s promise. If we had gone out there a few minutes later or not at all, we would have missed the simple blessing.
I believe God wanted to remind us of his promises and his faithfulness through those rainbows because as soon as we turned to go back inside, our kitten was waiting for us at the door.
