Rainbows and Tears


Most people love God’s colorful writing in the sky when rainbows stretch across the horizon touching the earth with ribbons of pigment. But most people sigh, grumble, and fume over clouds and rain—predecessors to vividly tinted sky.


Just as one really can’t make lemonade without lemons—so, too, one can’t have rainbows without rain.


Life is like that. Poverty, illness, injury, sorrow, death—life is filled with lemons and storms. No one likes hardship and pain. Yet, hardship and pain grow, strengthen, and develop us for success.

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:3&4

  1. You’ve topped yourself, Steph. For you to find a positive in rain shows what a remarkable human being your are, dear. A lovely post with beautiful images. What a rainbow! You’re quite a photographer as well!!

  2. Goodness, Val. Thanks. I just point the camera and shoot. Your Koos is a real photographer, and you take amazing photos also. But thanks for your kind words. I have to admit that I am looking forward to Florida and Texas. I talked to my brother in Florida last night and he promised to save some sun for us!
