This week we were able to witness the beauty of God's creation in a couple of unique ways. Sunday we were driving to First Reformed Church in Bulacan. It was raining off and on and the sun was shining, so a huge rainbow was stretched across the northwestern sky, for most of our two hour drive there.
Notice the double? Did you know that when there is a double rainbow the second one is a mirror image of the first? The order of the colors is in reverse.
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. Genesis 9:16
Tuesday night was the lunar eclipse. We climbed to the top of the grassy plateau (the second floor, we found out it's called) in the subdivision at about 5:30PM just as the sun was setting. There was a beautiful cooling breeze, but at first no moon. Then right at 5:45 the moon appeared over the distant hill and showed itself in all it's beauty. We quickly called the Smits and they all joined us.
To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth forever: The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth forever: The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth forever. Psalm 136: 7-9
