The Rainbows after the Rain.

Why would you worry?
God's handling it all.
If you don't believe,
Start with something small

You go to bed not knowing,
What the next day will bring,
You know the night will pass,
And that the birds will sing.

Look for the signs in everyday life,
They're there in smiles and in greetings.
So count every small thing you see,
For life is worthwhile--but fleeting.

Every day is a chance to do kindness,
To check on an old friend or two,
What pleases others pleases God,
And joy will return to you.

Quote of the Day

I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning to sail my ship.
Louisa May Alcott

A couple of days ago, while it was rainy and gloomy, I looked up from the computer to see a rainbow suddenly appear on the trees below me outside my window. It was across the trees–not in the sky. A little beam of sunlight had shined through the drizzle. It gave me a huge thrill and I felt that it was meant for me and my dark mood. By the time I grabbed my phone for a picture–the rainbow was already fading. These are the little things that tell me, “God is bigger than all our trials and He is always there.”

As a trained Stephen Minister, I have picked up a lot of knowledge about humans, especially myself. I hope my writings will help others. I am a mother to four and grandmother to nine. I hope to see you all on my blog. If I'm not there, I am probably reading!

  1. How are you doing, Connie? It’s not easy at first. It took me a couple of years to get to my present set up, but I enjoyed the process. 🙂 🙂 Rainbows are so magical, aren’t they?
