Something About The Rain

Here in Texas, we are as dry as a bone. We need rain in a bad way, and some parts of our country it is flooding and they can't catch a break. It seems to me that there should be a balance in the powers that be and spread all of that much needed water to the places that need it most and give the areas that can't catch a break from all the moisture. I am sure someday, someone will figure out a way to manipulate the weather and everyone will be happy. Ahem......

Click photo to get a great shot of this.

After the rain, there is always a promise of hope and renewal. Pray for the people of the great state of Colorado who are experiencing devastating flooding. The weather in the mountains can be catastrophic and it comes sometimes without much notice and quickly.  

My husband and my brother are at our cabin in Colorado. They have had some rain but nothing like what other parts of the state are experiencing. Last night, my brother sent me these photos they took while on their way to dinner. 

I always love to take photos of the rainbows in Colorado, and my husband sometimes gets annoyed because I will have him stop a hundred times for me to get the "right" shot. I am sure he was relieved that my brother just took the photos from the car and with his phone. Not bad....but I would have stopped and snapped several shots because that is just how I do it!  This is on the highway by our cabin, if you look closely on the edges of the main rainbow, you will see the double rainbow on top. Very pretty.....wish I had been there to see it in person.

At the foot of those hills, is the road that leads to our place.  This is the place that calms my soul, the place where we recharge and detach ourselves from the rest of the world. A real treasure. I am most thankful we share this little piece of  Heaven. Please remember the folks struggling with disaster and pray the rains move on. The one thing about the rain, even if it's flooding...if you look up, you will always find the rainbow and the message of hope in the end.

“Gratitude is the real treasure God wants us to find, because it isn't the pot of gold but the rainbow that colors our world.”

  1. Beautiful quote, and photos! I hope your husband and brother continue to have only a bit of rain :)

  2. Hi Suzanne,

    What a beautiful rainbow! I hope you soon get the rain you need, and less in Colorado. It is raining here now in central NJ. Have a great week!



Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
