light light light up the sky..

Thursday, October 04, 2012


This week has been a little rough for me. Not in any big way. Just one of those weeks where I feel tired and I just can't get everything done and function normally. I've made goals to get up early so I don't feel as rushed and I have time to check in on my quiet time Good Morning Girls group. I have still failed miserably but some days have I have been up earlier which helps me function better at work in the morning. Yesterday was especially bad. Road block after road block came up and I wound up changing a diaper in the car, smelling like poop, and taking the scenic route to drop Jonah off. The whole day just felt rushed after that and I let anxiety take me over (I hate that feeling)!

I made plans to go to my sisters and do some sewing for Jonah's birthday party/pictures, so I took another detour home before I went to get Jonah. I put on comfy clothes, fed the dog, and grabbed my supplies. 

As I headed back on the interstate and turned east, I saw a rainbow (I didn't even know it had been raining)
These aren't great photos taken obviously through my windshield while driving not really even looking at the phone. 
Then, as I headed on and the road turned a little more, I saw the REST of the rainbow. a full arch. like it was just encircling the city. I feel like it's rare that you see a full rainbow like that.

Then I heard on the radio:
Light, light, light up the sky. Light up the sky to show me You are with me. I, I, I can't deny. Oh I can't deny that You are right here with me. 

In moments like that I always quote (in my head) the Mandy Moore line from A Walk to Remember..."How can you have moments like this, and not believe." I needed a reminder that I am never alone and nothing is too much. I just wish I could maintain that feeling all the time.

Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking. Ezekial 1:28

anyway. I shared this on instagram, so sorry for the repeat. Here's the full song for those of you who don't know it!
