A Rainbow of Promise and of Hope

For a full size rainbow photo see link below**
We live in bleak times, or so we are led to believe. Perhaps things aren’t as bad as they seem, and there will be a future?

 The U. S. election results are out today, and President Obama has been given another fours years to fulfil his promise, i.e., his pledge to lead the States forward to great heights. In his victory speech* he said that by their spirit people had triumphed over war and depression and his desire was for them to press forward with the goal of perfecting the Union. He maintained the best was yet to come and that by pursuing their dreams it would be accomplished.

Times have indeed been bleak, and the darkest months of the year are upon us. Our British Bulldog spirit has flagged as we’ve been in mourning at the loss of so much: Our troops have been sacrificed in Afghanistan; our banks have suffered near bankruptcy; thousands have lost their jobs; the economy has been in recession; people of repute have been disgraced; devolution threatens to fracture our Country; the Government is divided; Europe is in tatters, and it seems our troubles are never ending.

And yet, there is hope! When we can see beyond a dark winter to spring’s bright rainbow, we can believe, and have hope that summer will provide a golden harvest.

‘And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.’ Genesis 8:12-15
