Gratitude Friday...rainbows

I am grateful for rainbows...

This morning, in particular, I am incredibly grateful for the rainbow that arched across the sky above my backyard. The graceful curve and brilliant colours brightened my cloudy heart.

I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
~ Genesis 9:13 (NIV)

Leroy bet me I couldn't find a pot of gold at the end, and I told him that was a stupid bet because the rainbow was enough.
~ Rita Mae Brown

Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
~ Lord Byron

What a privilege to be here on the planet to contribute your unique donation to humankind. Each face in the rainbow of colors that populate our world is precious and special.
~ Morris Dees

Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty. There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail.
~ Navajo song

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Anne, rainbows are something that I am also very grateful for. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photo collection and for posting these beautiful quotes.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love your rainbow photos. I also love rainbows :) I am very lucky to see them often in Hawaii (many times even double rainbows).


thanks Kathy, the photos aren't as good as I hoped because a certain young M had my new camera stashed away in her room, so all I could get my hands on was a really old one. My new one has a landscape setting that likely would have captured the full arc in one photo. But still, the colours shine through in any case!

girasoli, aren't double rainbows glorious?! We get a few of those here, but not often. How lucky that you get so many rainbows in Hawaii!


Great rainbow photos, even if you had to take them with your old camera!

Thanks for sharing.


Thanks Nancy, it was my REALLY old camera too (not the one I dropped in the bucket of water in Nfld, but the one before that...the one I dropped in the street in Florence...oops!)


Beautiful photos, Anne! I've seen a lot of rain lately, but not enough rainbows. Thanks!


My pleasure Sandra :) I've now recovered my good camera from underneath the mess of M's room, so when the next rainbow comes along, I'm hoping to get a panoramic shot of the full arc!

Great shots, I love rainbows too. One of things I miss about living on Maui, rainbows were always in doubles.


Candi, that would be awesome to always have double rainbows! We don't get many, but oh they are gorgeous!
