“Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue… I can sing a rainbow!”
Song by Delta Goodrem
It is a thing of beauty - every time I look into the sky and see a glorious rainbow, my heart lifts. It seems that we can return to our childhood memories – become child-like ever so briefly, and trust in God. The sparrows will be clothed, the sick will be healed, and as promised the flood will come no more.
Life is good!
