A friend invited me to go on an antiquing trip to Ohio recently. I thought it would be a good idea for me to get away for a few days. It was a hard thing to do, recipe but I did it. At the end of six days, it was time to drive home. There were so many rainclouds in the sky, and here and there the sun was peaking through.

My friend, Lynne, said, “look for a rainbow”, to which I replied, “oh, Lynne, I have not seen a rainbow for a few years, and when I do see one, it seems to disappear so quickly that I hardly had enough time to enjoy it.”

Less then ONE minute after I said that, a beautiful rainbow started appearing. We could not believe it. It was so beautiful and it made a huge arc across one side of the highway to the other. I grabbed my camera and started taking photos. As I was taking them, Lynne said, “wouldn’t it be great if we saw a double rainbow.” I have never in my life seen a double one, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when soon after she said that, a double rainbow appeared!

It is said that rainbows occur when it is raining and the sun is shining simultaneously. These lasted for almost ONE HOUR!!

It is also said that rainbows are God’s promise. Genesis 9

My photos do not do them justice. The colors were so vivid and it was huge.

By this time we had arrived at our hotel, and as we walked inside , I turned to get one last look, and when I did, it had already started to fade away.

I choose to believe it was a gift from my son, in fact, I am sure of it.

    Dear CARole, I had no idea about your son until I read your blog today. My heart breaks for you and your family but I am so glad that you have your faith to get you through this. What a beautiful blessing God gave you, in your son, and now in this breath-taking show of His creations and His love for us. You are in my prayers always. Love, Lana
