God's Promise

Genesis 9:12-16 (New International Version)
And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living. 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."

Recently we were on the causeway which crosses the bay near our city. We were in heavy traffic but I looked out over the bay and said to my hubby, "Look at that!!" I had my camera with me because I rarely travel without it for just such occasions as this. He managed to pull over to the side of the road long enough for me to snap a couple of pictures of the most unusual rainbow I had ever seen. It almost looked like it was dipping down into the water. I hope you enjoy these pictures of God's reminder to us of His promises.

Be sure to stop by Susan's blog, A Southern Daydreamer, to see many more outdoor pictures. I doubt I'll be able to ever share beautiful fall pictures from our area as Susan did but we do have other outdoor beauty to share. God's handiwork is ever-present!
