Autumn rainbows

Election Day 2008 brought a gift - beautiful rainbows all over the sky. First we saw this one in the field across from our home. It was so wide at times, almost like it was double-width.

Eventually, we had a double, but it only lasted a couple of minutes.


We left about ten minutes later and drove ten minutes away to Ethan's football practice and got to see this one and all the beautiful foliage around it.









Ethan forgot his cleats and as I drove home I saw another rainbow in a different direction towards the library.

Then as I neared home the most amazing one of all - a complete and absolutely HUGE arc across the sky in front of me and it seemed to be right there near the end of my street as I turned in, but I knew that it was too dusky (and I was in too much of a hurry) to get pics of that one. It was such an amazing experience and friends all over my area were talking about the rainbows on facebook that night. :^)

It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23

So is that the end of your driveway? If so, I must see the rest of your house. ;-)

Haha. I wish. That would be the end of the YMCA driveway where Ethan plays flag football. I'd be embarassed to post the end of my broken up concrete driveway. :^)
