Rainbows After the Storm

Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true…”

I’m sure you have heard this song on several occasions. I’ve personally always loved this song, but here lately this song has a whole new meaning. I look at “Rainbows” in a whole new light. Rainbows mostly come after a rainstorm. Rainbows are beautiful, majestic, and most refer to rainbows as having the classic “pot of gold” at the end. When I was little I remember asking my mom many of times to just keep driving because I wanted to see this pot of gold.

Many of people want this “pot of gold" or the“rainbow”…very little people want to go through the actual storm that produces these rainbows. But with all honesty, most storms are not fun—so it’s very hard to pay any appreciation to the actual storm and only to the rainbow. One often enjoys the rainbow while forgetting the forces that made it. It’ hard to look up rather than down when it’s pouring down on us

Life is a lot like “rain and rainbows”…we all have our own individual storms…some are heavier than others, some last days…some last seconds…but we all have some type of rainbow after these storms. Without the rain-there would be no rainbow—we need both “happy” sun and “tearful” rains to make all the beautiful colors appear.

We may walk…run…fall…stumble…drive or fly…but let us never lose sight of the reason for this journey. Struggles are not easy, only God knows what lies ahead but he does have a purpose for all his actions…don’t miss a chance to see the rainbow on the way.

Today I look at rainbows differently; I appreciate the struggles and this journey in life in a whole new light. God has something beautiful in store for my husband and I -as well as all of you. I can not wait till I get to experience my own personal rainbow, however I will never lose site at the journey that we took that led us to our rainbow.

May God give you, for every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every struggle life sends-someone faithful to share and an answer for each prayer. Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come shining through. No matter what the grievance, if we keep believing, the dream that we wish will eventually come true.

I love how you descrip this! It is amazing. There is definately something about going through the storm to get to your rainbow and pot of gold instead of missing the storm completely! Your rainbow is on it's way, building that perfect arch and just the right shades of of all those colors to lead you right to that "pot of gold"!
I also love eva cassidy, and that song!!!
