Sunrises and Rainbows

I was out early this morning and got to see not only the sunrise (which I never view) but also a HUGE (big, fat, juicy!) rainbow over the city.  Absolutely gorgeous!

I was struck by how I normally only get to see the “EFFECTS” of the sunrise ~ I am usually getting ready for work or church in the mornings, and I watch the outside get lighter and lighter from the window of the upstairs bathroom.  But today?  I got to the see the sunrise, ITSELF!  Gloriously bright and multi-hued (bright oranges, pinks, purples, and eventually yellow and light blue) as it climbed up over a somewhat overcast and rainy sky, just enough clearing in the clouds to see the violent fireball blazing at the center….

I could not help but see there was a parable, here ~

How much more glorious! to see and know the REAL THING (God), than only be satisfied with just the “effects” (his good works, the “salt and light” effect in the world).

To follow that up with the rainbow was yet another reminder that God keeps his promises!  What a great way to start the week!

Happy Monday to all!


About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at and, or follow her on Twitter at
