For Sunday, April 3rd, 2011
The rainbow is one of those natural wonders that has touched the hearts of the world. It gives beauty, hope, and sometimes fear through those that fear it. Legends surrounding the colorful image span the entire globe.
The Irish legend is one of the most famous. Probably because to the listener there is the chance of finding that elusive pot of gold. According to the story, there is a pot of gold hidden at the end of the rain bow that is guarded by a leprechaun. Everyone searching for the end of the rainbow, but usually finds that the little creatures have already spirited it away.
We may run, walk, stumble, drive, or fly, but let us never lose sight of the reason for the journey, or miss a chance to see a rainbow on the way.
When things look their very worst,
Just when the skies are darkest gray,
Look for the rainbow first. The rainbow is a sign of God's promise,
That He will guide us through any storm,
That He will see us through all our troubles,
No matter what their form. When you feel battered by life's storms,
And you are filled with doubt and dismay;
Just remember God's rainbow is coming
It's only a prayer away.
