"I will see it and remember"

Wednesday we had a CRAZY/amazing amount of rainfall in the DFW area.
I got out in the rain at 5am on my way to the gym. At 7am on my way to Starbucks. And at 7:55am to head to work.  The roads were crazy- so much rain that I was afraid to go more than 30 miles an hour because I couldn't see anything in front of me!
It also happened to be the day that I made homemade cinnamon rolls for the office. 
So here's what you need to picture:
I pull into work. I am balancing 3 pans of cinnamon rolls- i have my purse on my shoulder, and my cup of coffee in another hand.  Which leaves NO room to carry an umbrella.
Also- there's a small river in the parking lot that i could have avoided if I'd jumped- but you can't jump while balancing 3 pans of cinnamon rolls.  So i trudged through the parking lot river. 
I walk into the office completely drenched.  My first thought was " glad I spent time blow drying my hair today!!!!" 
Anywho- I was out in the rain a couple more times yesterday and each time- I came back in DRENCHED.....and i mean drrrrenched!!! (anne of avonlea, anyone?)  Ok.  So yeah.
There were crazy storms.
As I was driving home I saw a ginormous rainbow covering the sky (no 'double rainbow' jokes for you here).....and I know that this is SO simple- but I just was reminded of His promise.  The REASON we even SEE rainbows is because God created them to give HIMSELF a reminder of His promise.....That He would stay true to His Word.
The Lord said: "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the sky I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13-16
And here we are- thousands of years later- and it is still a reminder to us.  That He is true to His Word.  That He does not fail in keeping His promise. It is a reminder to God- but also to us. That He keeps His promise.
Do you have reminders set up for yourself to remind you of His promise?  As I saw that rainbow- I couldn't help but grin in excitement of knowing that HIS PROMISE IS SURE.
I have verses posted all over my office at work...all over my my car..... To remind me of His promise.
He is Good.




  2. MMMMMMM....Homemade cinnamon rolls... We could have been best buds girl. And praise the Lord girl. I admire your enthusiasm about your religion. I am right there with you. Only through Him is anything possible.


The one about moving to a new city

Moving to a new city is not for the faint of heart. Moving to a new city as a single adult is for SURE not for the faint of heart. I&#...
