The Color Of Rain

The Color Of Rain…

I was just 12 when Grandfather passed and it was like losing my best friend. It rained that day and mom told me it was tears from heaven letting me know the Angel’s were crying with me.

It is a good feeling knowing you are never alone in the world, even though it seems like you are. Grandfather would always tell me that God watches your every step and is always there to take your hand and comfort you when all seems lost.

I remember one day while we were hiking in the canyon he asked me what is the color of the rain drops falling from the sky? I looked at him and responded clear, the rain is clear.

Are you sure? I thought for a moment then responded I’m pretty sure. Then how come a rainbow has so many brilliant colors? Why is it when the rain comes the brown grass turns green? What is it about rain that restores life to almost everything?

When you stop and really think about it, rain is just about every color known to man. Rain is like hope for it fulfills the needs of mankind. It nourishes the land, fills our rivers and reservoirs and replenishes our strength. It clears our air and gives us the fragrance of newness after a storm.

Rain is a gift from God and like all His gifts we are blessed through His grace. So does rain have a color? Yes, it is the color of life.

And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. Revelation 22: 1-3

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
