A Rainbow Followed Me Home

In the past 6 weeks, I've been home a total of 13 days. I'm grateful for a home that receives me, grounds me, fills me and lets me go again.


I love you. I miss you.

You and your people were so good to me.

Physically, we can only be where we are, but in our hearts we can go many places.

On the night before Diane's baby was born, just before the full moon rose up, a rainbow appeared over the stucco rooftops. There was even a faint double rainbow. As we sat taking in the beauty and peace of it, an AZ micro storm sent a powerful flash of lightning right through the middle. Amazing!

On my way home yesterday, just before sunset as I was leaving Cedar City, another rainbow appeared. I was on a back road, the only car, and the vertical rainbow piece stood straight ahead of me. My first impulse was to step on the gas and drive Li'l Red right into it. Instead, I stopped, paused, and breathed it in.

And today, my first day home, the best rainbow show ever! Spread across my backyard was a full, perfect, brilliant prism of loving light - double even! I caught myself saying "What does it mean?" Move over Double rainbow guy of youtube fame!

What does it mean? A heavenly sign that God knows my heart? I think so. He is a keeper of promises. So am I.

Thsnk you for keeping your promises. I love you. We all love you.

I imagine if we could see inside your heart it would be filled with rainbows, too.
