Finding the Rainbow

Courtesy examiner.com

Lately, Micah has been helping me water the lawn. It is a contemplative practice of sorts, quiet and serene.  A patient time to do little more than direct the nozzle so that the water can replenish the earth.

But with Micah as my helper, the chore takes on a whole new dimension.  He loves to run through the water; to help hoist, hold, and recoil the hose.  I marvel at his sheer delight in such a simple task.

What a joy to have his company in the garden!  Perhaps this is what God intended when He created Eden.  That is what I think of again and again as an arc of rainbow appears.  Micah is my living hope.

For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.  (Psalm 100:5 NAS)
