One thing about the valley

is amazing rainbows! Sometimes there are double bows! It does not rain much here, but when it does, it is usually big! And there are rarely storms like we use to have in San Bernardino. Storms that last days with street flooding. This last batch of storms were a little scary. I mean it was HARD rain! And COLD! But yesterday morning I looked out my window and saw that lovely bow. I love them because I always think of God's promise to Noah:

And God said, "This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth." Genesis 9

While looking at it, I thought how scary it must have been to have been in that flood. Especially, since there is no record of rain happening like that before. Seems the "gentle mist" spoken of in the garden was nothing like the flood!

I'm glad I captured it! Maybe I can catch a double one!

We were driving back from Cambria during the last big storm in January and there were rainbows along the entire drive. Most were full arcs across the freeway, and you could see the "ends" down in the valleys along the side. Unfortunately, there weren't any pots of gold that I could see! It's such a beautiful reminder of God's grace!

I think you might have to be Irish to see the pots of gold! ;-) I wish you would have gotten a picture of said rainbows! Thanks for the comment Lucky Luke!
