Signs of Grace

On Sunday, my husband called out from the kitchen and asked me to come quick. It was one of those kind of days where everything seemed to be breaking or leaking or otherwise going wrong, so I rushed to the back of the house. My husband stared at the sky at a double rainbow. Even though I understand the science behind rainbows, I still find them magical--especially a double rainbow, which I've only seen a few times in my life. I understand why the Genesis writer used it as a sign that God loves the world and will never destroy it again.

Amazing! I've never seen a double!!
Can hardly wait to read the poem that will surely be written about this one...
Love you, Sue

At the beach last month my wife and I saw a rainbow, faint but unmistakable, the full arc, between us and the sea-cliff fifty yards away. The sun setting through a fine mist behind us. It was lovely and startling.
