I’ve always loved rainbows. Every time I see one, I think of the Bible verses in Genesis Chapter 9:8-17. Of course, I don’t think of every word of these verses, just the general gist, since I am a “general gist” type of person. Basically, I remember that it’s God’s promise to us not to destroy the entire world with a flood.
When it is raining, whether lightly or like cats-and-dogs, and the sun is shining, no matter how dimly or brightly, I always look for a rainbow. If there is one, I always have a child-like sense of wonder and joy upon seeing it. It is not only a token of a promise God made to all of us, but also just a beautiful, colorful sight in the midst of what is usually a gray, dismal-looking sky. There’s a metaphor for life in there. I’m sure you can figure it out. It’s kind of like the “silver lining in every cloud”, except with a rainbow…. 🙂
