Rainbow Over the Sea

Lately I feel as if someone pushed the 'on' button in my life and has forgotten to turn it off. There is so much to get done and so many things on my mind that I have to do. The great thing is through all the busyness I am feeling God's presence and I feel like I am right where he wants me at the moment. It's amazing what a difference it makes. This last weekend I escaped with two friends to a friend's beach house an hour and a half drive away. It was such a refreshing time, we left Friday night, spent Saturday down there and came back early Sunday as we all had lots to do! It really was a snatched break and one that was needed. On the Saturday afternoon we dodged the raindrops to go for a long walk to the end of the beach. It was beautiful (and freezing cold) and as we walked back we happened to look back to see one of the most stunning rainbows I have ever seen. The photo doesn't do it justice, it reached all the way from the horizon of the ocean across to the edge of the hills on the other side. Exquisite. And a beautiful reminder of God's compassion towards us.

Hi Sarah. I just tried to post a comment and then it disappeared. Hmm..Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for sharing this beautiful picture! I'm glad that you were able to get away with your friends for a break and that the Lord gave you this visible reminder of His love and faithfulness! He knows when we need that extra bit of encouragement. Praying that He carries you through this busy time!
Blessings,
Silvana
