Why are there so many....

Songs about Rainbows, what's on the other side....... Rainbows maybe visions & only illusions, but I've seen a LOT more than 15 in my 28 years!

These are pics of an almost completely full rainbow taken from right inside my front door not 5 minutes ago. In the last hour we've had a little thunderstorm blow in over us, and out of nowhere (it seems) the rain starts & all the sudden here is this rainbow starting over one neighbour's house & ending over the other neighbour's. I just had to share them.

I'd heard a trivia clip on the radio last week stating that some poll indicated that the average person reports seeing only 15 rainbows in their LIFETIME! *shaking head* Unbelievable. I've seen 4 in the last 3 days. On Thursday I saw a short (about 3" long) "piece" of a rainbow that was unbelievably brilliant & vivid, just as I was leaving work. Yesterday I saw 2 on the drive home, one that was very bright & vivid & almost complete & on the outside of IT was a second that was a mere shadow of the first, but definitely there. And today, this.

I've now seen at least 10 this year (4 in the last 3 days, at least 6 more prior to that), I figure that if I've seen only 6 or 7 a year, that in the last 27 (I'm going to assume that I didn't "see" any rainbows in my first year of life) years I've seen almost 200 rainbows by now.

That cloud-burst is almost over already and the skies above us are blue again. But I just had to share.

May you see many, many more rainbows in your life!

Love the pics!

I think you'll find that it's not so much that the average person only sees 15 rainbows in their lifetime, but more to the point, that the average person only notices 15 rainbows in their lifetime. So many people walk around with blinkers on, and as a result miss seeing all the beautiful things around them.

Tee-Hee... Try living in Hawaii... I see Rainbows almost every day! And I'm reminded of God's Promises everytime I see them.

Love you!
