'Dar's gold in ye barn!

Sarah: Get up my love, and do not dally for there's gold in ye barn!
Dan: Now, now, darling, for it's not gold at the bottom of the rainbow. It's #2 yellow corn and it's in our wagon not in a pot.

Yesterday morning when I went out to feed our calves it was lightly raining and yet brightly sunny resulting in a very nice rainbow. It went from left to right and was complete. There has been only one time when I saw a better rainbow and it was actually a double rainbow with the bottom one complete from left to right and one partial one above it. I like rainbows because of the spectrum of colors. It is quite amazing.

God immediately comes to my mind when I see a rainbow and of his covenant faithfulness to us. He brings us the sun and the rain but never again will he bring a flood to destroy the earth. As it is written in Genesis 9 vs. 13-16:

13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 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. 16 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.
