The Brightest Thing Since the Sun

I’m so thankful that my desk resides directly next to my window.

Though it may be cloudy in Seattle the majority of the time, or raining (or misting as the case would usually be), I always enjoy the view. 

The trees outside my window are currently a fiery orange, and their color becomes even more illuminated when the sun hits them just right. 

Yesterday I was contentedly blogging as it rained and I turned to look out my window as I normally do when trying to find the right words.

There, spread across the sky, was the most glorious rainbow I have ever seen.

Considering I don’t see the sun very often in Seattle, seeing a full rainbow was indescribable.  

I immediately began yelling at everyone on my floor to look out the window.  I started taking pictures and posted about the rainbow on the Ashton Facebook page, telling people to look outside.  I wanted as many people as possible to get the chance to see it. 

Why shouldn’t everyone delight in the beauty of a promise?

I call rainbows “promises” because they remind me of all the great things that God has in store for me, and everyone around me. 

Before I knew it people throughout the dorm were yelling out their windows, “Look at the rainbow!” and everyone was hooting and laughing. 

Within minutes Facebook was full of posts talking about the rainbow—everyone was posting pictures and glorifying the beauty of God’s nature!

It seemed as if God was saying, you can get through this and I am here every step of the way.


Yes, promises that will never fail.
