I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.
My husband, Danny, and I can't get enough of our most recent cabin in the breathtaking Nantahala Mountains of North Carolina overlooking the majestic vistas of the Great Smokys. The interior of the cabin offers all the comforts, and then some, of home.
The views from our windows are incomparable, ever changing, ever inspiring.
If you've followed Meditations of My Heart for any length of time, you already know that we are bi-annual visitors to these gracious, inviting mountains, which by their very presence, remind us of the God who created them and dwells among us. We have witnessed, over the years, every imaginable cloud formation, stunning sunrises, and night skies that defy description.
But on this visit, we are graced with the one phenomenon we'd barely glimpsed before and never witnessed in full. A rainbow!!! And not just any rainbow; this one begins in the valley and arches onto the mountainside high above in a single, unbroken curve.
We stand speechless, in awe yet again of the wonders in God's handiwork. And we are gloriously reminded by this rainbow of His everlasting covenant.
Do you have a special memory of a rainbow? Please share!
Prayer: Father, we thank You for Your signs and wonders all around us that remind us of Your constant presence in our lives. Help us to live humbly, giving You all the honor and the glory, each and every day. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
