This is a ‘panoramic stitch’ of the solar halo in Omaha yesterday. I saw it in the morning on my way to take Mom to chemo. I wish I could have captured it all in one picture, but alas(!) my Canon in on the fritz and my cellphone’s camera wouldn’t take it in its entirety.
The one thing I truly would like to have gotten was the beauty of the colors. The bright spots on either side of the sun’s halo were rainbow colored. I was actually so distracted by it I had to force myself to concentrate on driving into town to get Mom.
It wasn’t raining, and I just couldn’t help but think that God was just letting me know that His promises for our lives are still as true as they were when He made them. I really needed to be encouraged by that – because even though I know it, some days it is hard to remember. Especially on days when I see my mom hooked up to IV bags of poison that are running into her body to kill a cancer that will never really be cured. Sometimes it is hard to readily embrace that “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called in accordance with his purpose”. (Romans 8:28 )
I’m just saying…
