Along the path of our life are scattered so many rainbows of hope.
There are times when we can’t see any joy or happiness or love.
Look closely – there are so many daily blessings.
The sweetness of a singing bird.
The smile of a stranger.
Sunlight streaming through the trees.
The scent of jasmine.
The wonders of nature.
Watching the perserverance of the ant and the load that it carries.
The perfection of the rose.
The unconditional love of a pet.
Having someone care because there are always prayers lifted for those hurting.
Every breath that we take.
I could go on and on and on …….
Yes – the best things in life are free.
Little rainbows are just as special as ones that encompass our whole day ……..
maybe even more so
for they are given in beautiful snippets and can lessen the intensity of our load.
Always remember that within each trial the Lord has scattered little rainbows
along the path of what sometimes feels like an empty, hopeless day.
Thank you Lord.
