Rainy Days

There's this part of winter that I dread; the time when everything starts melting and April rolls around. It's some strange weather phenomenon, I suppose, where everything turns gray: The sky is gray, the ground is gray, as is everything in between. The sunshine that manages to filter through the heavy, swollen clouds merely highlights the monochromatic world.

They say that when God first created the world, there was no rain. But during the time of Noah, when sin was so great upon the earth, "all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights." (Gen 6:11b-12) When all was over, God put the rainbow in the sky, in remembrance of His promise to never again drown the earth - the logical conclusion is that they never had rain before, so there could have been no rainbows before that.

I think about that on days like these. Thanks a lot, oh great people of the early days of the Earth. If you'd kept to the narrow path, we could have had sunshine today. :)
