Rainbows -reminders of God's faithfulness

I am thankful most days, it is the way I am made. Once a week God shows me a rainbow, yes, I know I am blessed. Of course He puts it out there for everyone to see, but I know that most miss it.

As my 4 youngest dance at my girlfriend/adopted sister's dance school (Kandie was always like family, but last fall when her only sister died- I adopted her into our family)...God reminds me of His love and faithfulness, as I park my car and gaze at this strangers laundry line.

She must be an artist, because even her laundry is beautiful. I get such joy out of her rainbow and so thankful that God speaks to me through it. Who'd think that the Lord of the Universe would speak to me through a clothes line full of someones laundry!

Indeed He is faithful, counting the hours until our agency calls and gives us our waiting list number. We are getting close! Have a wonderful day!

I love that Kimmie!
What I love MOST about it though is that YOU noticed! I love how the Lord speaks of His love to us in so many creative ways, if only we are looking and listening.

I hope that I can slow down enough today to enjoy the sound of His voice and the Beauty of His creation.

Thanks for the reminder.

I love seeing laundry haging out to dry! You NEVER see that around here...with all the HOA rules and regulations clothes lines are forbidden....Heaven forbid someone see your undies out to dry!

One more reason why I want a house in the Country some day!
Hugs,
Robin

God is to be found everywhere we look. We have but to 'look'. :-)

Oh, that is so cool!

I know I missed your Sunday Prayer Request Day but can I add one? We stumbled upon an open adoption opportunity. I got a call out of the blue from a lady who knows a lady who's daughter is pregnant and wants to give the baby (boy) up. We need wisdom and we need it fast!

Javamama!

Praying for you, for wisdom, for protection and for abounding love that brings glory to God.

What an opportunity-honestly it is a desire of my heart!

May God's will be clear and exact to you, and may no fear rise against you to keep you from doing His will. (in Jesus' name, amen!)

Hi Kimmie :) What a lovely reminder! I think that having a heart that is open to seeing what the Father may have - even in laundry - is such a joy! Love, Q

That laundry just looks brilliant. Mine is much more drab:-(

There is nothing so lovely as fresh-dried laundry off a clothes line.
