The Hidden Rainbow

The clouds are really big here in Florida.  The past week, like clockwork, they roll in during the late afternoon.  Rain comes, watering the lawn and flowers, giving me a reprieve.  Yesterday afternoon something amazing happened. We were about to get in the car when my attention was drawn to a bright white mountainous cloud behind me.  High up in the sky, through a large portal in the center, I could see a patch of blue sky, along with part of a rainbow tinged in golden light! I wanted to run back in the house and get my camera but it soon faded out of sight.

I was thankful for this beautiful metaphor in the sky, teaching me that those big thick clouds are like my ego thoughts blocking out the joy of truth--the rainbow of God's promise is there all the time.  In reality, the clouds have only the power I give them with my mind. Today I'm going to be more vigilant for what thoughts I'm entertaining.  Love or fear?  One is real and the other a misperception.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.
