This time of year can be exciting, and sometimes stressful and even a bit scary as we and our children head off to new opportunities and adventures at school and even at work. We need to remember to look for the rainbows and dwell on the promises for a bright day and a bright future as we face the oportunities and challenges, and sometimes the rain and the darkness that life brings. Sunlight will surely come again, as will the rainbows, and as will our Savior, Jesus Christ.
11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
Genesis 9: 11-17
