Sesame Street had a show devoted to Rainbows.  The actor gave this name ROY G BIV to help the puppets remember the colors of the rainbow.  It was one of those things that stuck in my head.

When you spot a rainbow it may catch you by surprise. It is like seeing a red cardinal bird in the snow.  Or perhaps you are one who knows the scientific results from water and light creates the prism to produce a rainbow.  So after a rain are you looking to the sky for that rainbow?  My daughter when heading to her Drs. appt. 6 years ago and saw a double rainbow. And that day she found out she was having twins!

The Legend of the Leprechaun is an Irish mythology and folklore that a Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. And then it is attached to a rainbow because of searching and hoping for the wealth of gold.

God’s promise was a rainbow. In Genesis 9:11-17 And I will establish my covenant with you: neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy. Verse 13: I do set my bow (rainbow) in the cloud and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. (a promise).

I believe he will keep his promise. Does the rainbow help me to remember that or is it an alert of God’s other promises. I might not have found my pot of gold but when I see a rainbow it makes me smile and forget the cares of that moment and enjoy the rainbow with a light heart.

With God all things are possible.

God will take care of you.

Many books talk about rainbows: A Rainbow of My Own by Don Freeman, The Rainbow Book by Kate Ohrt and All the Colors of the Rainbow by Allan Fowler to mention a few. Even songs talk of rainbows: Kermit the Frog sang “Rainbow Connection” and In the 1940’s a song I’m Always Chasing Rainbows”

So if you are chasing rainbows or searching for the Pot of Gold.  
                       Remember a Promise is a Promise no matter who says it.
