Rainbows Artist Joe Roter
Brings a smile
to all those who view them,
Send a Rainbow
to someone you love today.
"Rainbow at night, shepherd's delight;
Rainbow in morning, shepherds take warning,
"If there be a rainbow in the eve, It will rain and leave;
But if there be a rainbow in the morrow,
It will neither lend nor borrow",
Rainbow to windward, foul fall the day;
Rainbow to leeward, damp runs away."
Describing a rainbow as "one of the most spectacular light shows observed
on earth". Indeed the traditional rainbow is sunlight spread out into its
spectrum of colors and diverted to the eye of the observer by water droplets.
The "bow" part of the word describes the fact that the rainbow is a
group of nearly circular arcs of color all having a common center.
Some have said that the arc looking like a bridge or gateway, is our passage into
Heaven." Believing that the rainbow is a ray of light falling to earth
lighting our pathway into heaven. Thus the saying of finding your pot of gold at
the end of the rainbow.
" The falling rain dissolves into mist
And the thunder begins to die
As the sporadic lightning fades
An arch of color pours from the sky.
Rainbows appear after mighty storms
When things look their worst
Just when the sky is darkest gray,
Out of Heaven does a rainbow burst.
God first sent the rainbow to Noah
As a sign that His word is true
The rainbow's eternal message
Still speaks to me and you.
The rainbow is a sign of God's promise
That He will guide us through any storm
That He will ease 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,
For blessing, you have only to pray."
