Five Minute Friday- Beauty

Flex your fingers, and let’s play Five Minute Friday.

Where we throw caution (editing, revising, and worrying) to the winds and just write. Without wondering if it’s just right or not.

For five minutes flat. Then link up here

Today’s prompt is:  Beauty.. ready? GO!

Beauty is God’s promise reminded. God’s promise fulfilled.

I find it interesting the prompt today. Just as I was walking out of my house after having executed the “Honey, here are the kids- I’m leaving for a bit-” hand-off, exhausted and feeling tattered, ready for a little quiet time, just as I am running- no escaping to the adult-ness of a nearby coffee shop not just a little annoyed by the question, “Will you be home to put the kids to bed?” Just then,  God stops me in my tracks.

Out my door, still dripping with a refreshing, heat-busting, life-giving rain shower, was a full rainbow.  Bright in all it’s colors, a second fainter rainbow shimmering just above it.  From end to end you could trace it…almost reach out and touch it.

I paused for a minute, thinking I should continue my escape while before my husband had second thoughts…but then, when was the last time I saw a full rainbow? I ran back in the house and gathered all my family on the front porch…awestruck  silence filled the air for a moment, and then my 9 year old turns to me…”It’s beautiful. It’s God’s promise. Thanks, Mom, for reminding me.”

Beauty is God’s promise reminded…remembered…fulfilled.
