What a Wonderful Sight!

 

Genesis 9: 12-16 (The Message) ~ God continued, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I’m putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth. From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will floodwaters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth.” Genesis 9: 12-16 (The Message)

 

Ezekiel 1:28 (NIV)

Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. When I saw it, I fell facedown, …

 

 

I’m always excited when I see a rainbow. And when I see double, that’s really special. How about you? We spotted this one late in the afternoon on Monday.

I’m linking up to Susan’s Outdoor Wednesday.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. That would entail moisture in the air….let alone rain actually falling. We are so stinking dry. I can’t even remember the last time it rained let alone getting to see a rainbow. You did a great job capturing them. Gorgeous

  2. Saw the first one I have seen in a long time a couple of weeks ago. They are always such a special surprise. What a neat gift from God and a reminder that He always keeps His promises! Your pictures are great

  3. Ellen, I absolutely love this post and the scriptural references to rainbows. Thank you for this reminder of how wonderful the Lord is to us and how he fills our world with beauty.

    Happy Outdoor Wed. to you, my friend…

    XO,

    Sheila 🙂

  4. I act like a kid when I see a rainbow! I call my neighbors out of their houses to stand in the wet grass and look at them with me. I call my kids on their cell phones and tell them to look! I call my husband at work and ask him if there’s one where he is.

    A rainbow is always best when it’s shared! : )

    (And yours were particularly wonderful!)

  5. I love rainbows and double ones are extra special. Great photos Ellen.
    When I see a rainbow I always think of God’s promise.

  6. Your photos are so gorgeous! Like you, I never can resist taking a picture of a bright rainbow, and especially double rainbows. Did you by chance see the third purple bow (the one double high above the first one?) Few people look for it…and it isn’t always visible.

    When I see rainbows, I think about “rainbow” teachings that I have read. The two multicolored bows are mirror images of each other, but both have green in the middle. Revelation mentions an emerald bow above the throne of God, and emerald is noted as being the stone assigned to the tribe of Judah on the Hebrew priests breastplate. Jesus was from the tribe of Judah..he’s the Lion of Judah. I find it interesting that in the end, it is the emerald green part that remains in heaven.

    Also that Zion/Jerusalem are words that when said in Hebrew include the suffix that means “both” or “twin”. I like to think that when I see a double rain bow with the “royal” purple above them, it assures us that both heaven and earth will never be destroyed and that our Royal God reigns over both!

  7. Hello Ellen, This rainbow is stunning. I adore rainbows, the one on my header is real and it was taken on our property. This is what we wake up to every morning. A lovely mountain view and a few times a year we get these awesome rainbows all across the mountain ranges in from of our home. Sometimes they are a double too. Your photos and your scripture are wonderful.
    Blessings and hugs, Jeanne
