Seeing Rainbows

Thursday, April 09, 2020



I was sitting in my easy chair, staring at my laptop, when I looked up. Out of my window I saw this beautiful rainbow. the colors were so much brighter than I have ever seen in a rainbow before. I grabbed my phone and started snapping photos. I had not even realized it had rained. I stared at the rainbow and thought how blessed I am.
Even when it starts to feel lonely, I was reminded I am never alone.
I did not sleep well last night. today I am dragging. But I got up, got cleaned up, got dressed and put on my shoes. DO you put on shoes everyday? Then I made my bed. SOmeone once told me that it is important to make my bed every day. It gets the day off to the right start. SO I make my bed.
The weather is calling for rain all day, but right now the sun is peeking out.
When I start to feel down I am going to pull up this photo of my rainbow and hold onto that promise it reminds me of.
ANd I share that beautiful rainbow with you all hoping it ill bring you joy.

    God does paint a beautiful picture, and reminds us of his promises just when we need it.

    That is a beautiful rainbow!! Thank you for sharing with us, Ruthie!! The first thing I do each morning is make up my bed before I do anything else. I've been working from home for almost 12 years now and I always get dressed including shoes before I start work.

    That is a beautiful rainbow! Very timely. Our faith is especially important right now. I hope that you have a wonderful Easter.

    Beautiful rainbow and thanks for sharing! Gods promises to the faithful. I do make a habit of always making the bed first thing, then shower and get dressed---then coffee. I agree---no matter what; it is a positive affirmation when I make the bed, and then get busy. Just got back from a wonderful outdoor walk thru the neighborhood w/ my hubby. Was great to see others walking, children riding their bikes --laughing, and people mowing their lawns. Even seeing the mailman come at 1:00 every day--rain or shine--reminds us---Life is now and worth living.
    P.S. Just saw your Q... do you wear shoes every day? I do not like anyone coming in the house w/ shoes on--ask they leave them on the porch. Otherwise, I wear expensive good arch flip-flops and do not go barefoot---as I had plantar fasciitis for 8 years, and wear something w/ good arch support.

    I was taught also to make my bed first thing... funny story, when I was first married, I would make our bed first thing..well the new husband would just be going to the bathroom and I'd make the bed, he would go back to bed..surprised it was already made... his believe was why made it when you will just be sleeping in it that night. Sometimes that afternoon... it was stressful ...
    I dont wear shoes in the house either just when going out..I have shoes at everday... lol

    Many years ago, my mother insisted that we make our bed everyday. A habit that has continued throughout my adult life. We don't wear our shoes in the house, so unless I'm going outside, I don't put on shoes.

    The rainbow is stunning!! A message of hope from Above.

    Have a blessed day. Stay safe. Be well. emoticon
