Whatever is it that I spy

Is that a rainbow in the sky,

The colors are so crisp and clear

Is it the first for me this year ?

Those seven colors that I see

Bring such great joy to giddy me

Red, orange, yellow, green and blue

Indigo and violet too.

Quite a vision that all may share

I wish that I could fly up there

And touch that rainbow God did paint

To find out if it is or ain’t.

God left His mark there in the sky

Reminding us He does not lie !

EXCUSE ME but have you been searching for the rainbow ?  Did you know that Methuselah of Genesis fame lived 969 years and was the grandfather of Noah, known for his construction of the Ark ?  Wow, a mouthful !  God introduced the rainbow as a reminder to all that He would honor His vow to never again flood the world in perpetuity !  I learned that when I was but a small girl and since then each rainbow I have seen reinforces my belief.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our leaders could instill in us that kind of trust ?  Oh how I wish !  Remember Daniel 2 and his feet of clay, well welcome to reality !  Clay just reminds me of a lot of mud !  How about you ?

If I were a rainbow my home would be the sky

You would see my colors if mist were passing by

The sun must be behind if you’re to catch the glow

There through tiny raindrops it’s time to see the show.

Only seven colors the spectrum is complete

Oh what a sight to show majestic and so sweet

And such a great reminder that God is ever there

Keeping every promise that we were meant to share !

This morning I awoke with lyrics in my head, “look, look, look to the rainbow, follow it over the

hill and the stream”.  It reminded me of God’s promise to Noah after the deluge that He would

set  “His bow in the sky” as a token of His covenant with mankind.  Isn’t that a lovely thought?

Just the image of a rainbow brings quivers to the heart and gladness to the eyes,   so very

magical . Good choice !  Lyricists romanticize rainbows as in “Finian’s Rainbow” ;  “The

Wizard of Oz” with its wistful classic “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, which leads us to

William Wordsworth in a similar vein:  “My heart leaps up when I behold  a rainbow in the

sky:  So was it when my life began;  So it is now I am a man;  So be it when I shall grow old,

Or let me die !  The Child is father of the Man;  And I could wish my days to be Bound each to

each by natural piety”.  Wow !  However, today I choose to embrace the last stanza of “Look

to the Rainbow”.    “Look, look, look to the rainbow

Follow the fellow who follows a dream

Follow the fellow, follow the fellow

Follow the fellow who follows a dream”.

I’m okay with that, how about you ?

Sincerely,

Claire B.
