Long before sunrise this morning, I was up and selected an angel card messenger for today. The Angel of Communication seemed important, but I wasn't sure what to write about... Maybe a suggestion to reach out to someone I hadn't contacted in a long time. Or maybe to just remember all of the wonderful ways God will communicate to each of us through His representatives. The angel blog was put on hold. After breakfast, Elliot and I were prompted to go for a walk. A gentle "angel" nudge came to me to bring my phone for a photo, but I didn't pay attention.
Stepping out the front door, I noticed how the rain from last night made everything lush and green. I stood in the yard admiring a bright yellow flowering bush. (Last year I almost gave it up for dead.) A light drizzle spritzed my face, and I looked up, wondering if we should walk.
That's when Elliot pointed to an amazing sight! High above the trees, a big beautiful majestic rainbow arched the blue sky!
Like a joyful kid, I ran into the house to grab my phone to get a picture. Through a sunny mist, I snapped away, hoping to capture the colors before they faded. I knew the rainbow was a powerful sign to be shared.
I love it! A rainbow is like a sermon in nature: "Look up! Something wonderfully beautiful is happening. The storm is over, and this is what it brought! Hallelujah!"
We hurried to walk underneath the colorful arch, feeling the glow of its blessing.
To me, the rainbow speaks of God's greatness, His Love, His majesty and promise as we lift up our eyes.
Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him
Enjoy your day with the Angels, and listen for their gentle, loving nudges. Then step out in faith.
Love and joyful blessings,
