A weapon against the flood waters stored on high, lighting up the firmament by its brilliance,
Behold the rainbow! Then bless its Maker, for majestic indeed is its splendor;
It spans the heavens with its glory, this bow bent by the mighty hand of God.
We had a tremendous amount of rain this weekend (thank you, God!) which helped our drought-stricken area, and on Sunday afternoon the sun began to come out. We went outside and there was this beautiful double rainbow in the sky over our monastery! It was like a gentle reminder from God that he is still taking care of us. Truly, "the favors of the Lord are not exhausted, his mercies are not spent. They are renewed each day, so great is his faithfulness." (Lamentations 3:22-23) May his name be praised forever!
