After the Storm

“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 problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.” - Irish Blessing

A week or so ago we had quite the storm here with torrential rain and even some hail fell on our farm but after the storm passed the sun began to peek through the clouds. That is when I saw this spectacular rainbow, what a blessing.

These pictures just do not do this beautiful rainbow justice at all. It was really quite stunning to see in person. The lighting was lowered on the first picture to try and make the rainbow more visible. The second picture is with normal lighting. This picture was taken at the end of our drive-way, looking down the country road that runs in front of our farm.

Awesome! Doesn't it want to make you run down that road to stand in the middle of it?

Oh I love rainbows! Thank you for sharing this one with all of us! A rainbow at the end of the road. Even if the way is muddy, full of holes with dark woods lining the way, if we just put one foot in front of the other we can make it to the rainbow!

I do love how there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Throughout all of the challenges in life, we gain more hope and wisdom.

The photo is interesting, Jennifer.
