The Promise

After The Storm

We had quite a storm here today. Not as bad as predicted but heavy winds and rain. It didn't last long though and I had no damage here from it.
I was getting supper and glanced out the front window and it looked like the trees across the road were on fire.
I went outside with my camera and the sun had come out and was setting and the trees to the east were the most brilliant oranges and reds.

Just breathtaking!

Then I saw it. The most perfect rainbow.

It stretched in an uninterrupted arch across the sky.

And when I looked through my viewfinder again, it had turned into a double rainbow.
I stood there in the rain until it was gone.
God puts on amazing shows.

Have a great Wednesday everyone. It's babysitting day for me!


  1. The double rainbow is glorious. We have a lot in common as I am a retired RN and we have a very old house also. Isn't retirement great? hugs♥olive
