Meteorological Phenomena

I took this last night while driving... actually, for once, I was sitting still at a red light. Can you see there are two rainbows?!?

Whenever I see a rainbow, it not only reminds me of God's promises, but also I remember the day, several years ago now, when I was in Seattle. I was going through a really hard time and I had just finished telling my friend, Christy, that I'd never seen a "full" rainbow. She stopped me mid-sentence and said, "Mer, look up". And there in the sky was a FULL rainbow!!!! God doesn't always answer me immediately like that, but I think He knew I really needed the encouragement that day!!

I just looked this up on Wikipedia, "Rainbows are optical and meteorological phenomena that cause a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere. They take the form of a multicoloured arc, with red on the outer part of the arch and violet on the inner section of the arch. More rarely, a double rainbow is seen, which includes a second, fainter arc with colours in the opposite order, that is, with violet on the outside and red on the inside." Isn't that amazing?!?

That's so cool! This summer Mark and I were coming into New Orleans and saw a huge vivid rainbow over the city. He said ,you know, somebody from the city council should be out here taking a picture for the Bring-back-New-Orleans campaign!

Thanks! I love taking pictures of nature! God's given me an eye for it. Someday, I think it'd be fun to create a coffee table book full of pictures, Bible verses and perhaps some of my poetry as well.

Did you and your husband stop and take a picture of that New Orleans rainbow?
