I sent the kids upstairs to get dressed and I began to wash the breakfast dishes. I glanced up and noticed a strange pink hue coming into the windows.
The sunrise must be gorgeous, I thought. I opened up the backdoor and looked east. I saw beautiful pink clouds adorning a pale blue sky. A golden glow beamed from behind the clouds.
It was breath taking. I really should have grabbed the camera but we were running out of time.
I went upstairs to check on the kid's progress and Peter exclaimed, "Mom! It looks weird outside!"
I told him the sunrise was gorgeous and was casting a pink glow over everything. He quickly ran to the eastward facing bonus room window.
As I walked toward the end of the hall, I could see his dark silhoutte in front of the pink and blue and golden sky.
And even more than a picture of that beautiful sunrise, I wanted a picture of my son admiring God's handiwork.
I eventually got everyone out the door and in the car. My husband is on a business trip so I had drop off duty.
As we were pulling onto the highway, I looked to my left and saw the end of a rainbow.
"Kids! Look! A rainbow!" I announced.
"Where? Where?" was quickly replaced with "Cool!" and "So pretty!"
And then, "Look! There's the other end!"
And that beautiful rainbow was beside us the whole way to school.
