Thank you God.

The first thing I thought as I wrote the title for today's post was
                             "okay that will probably put some people off reading this post"

But I really hope that it would do the opposite and entice people in because what is better to write about than something which makes you say
"Thank you God"

It all started with me wanting to do this online graphics course and with all that I had learned so far I decided it was time to create a unique picture for my Facebook Timeline.  (if you want to learn more about making better pics for your blog then see the link in the side bar)

     So that was my little project yesterday.

I had already found a nice picture free to use by anyone from a site called Pixabay a few days ago and had downloaded it to my computer knowing I would use it for something.  So today I thought of it and set to work to resize it to be the right size for a timeline pic and crop it to get rid of a piece I didn't want in it.

Then I had to think what I wanted to write on it and where to put this text etc.

Well looking at the picture just one thing came to mind and so I proceeded to finish my creation which you can see below.


To me it was obvious with the rainbow reminding me of the promises of God and His love, that the only thing I could write was 
"Thank you God"

What do you think of when you see a rainbow?


Maybe it's because I collect things to do with arks (that will have to be a blog post sometime too).
Maybe it's because I have led children's meetings for many years and we would often sing the song "Mr Noah built an Ark" which has as the end of the chorus the words
"So whenever you see a rainbow, remember God is Love"
Or Maybe it's because I believe the Bible story of Noah and the Ark with the rainbow as a sign of God's promise to the world.

      But whenever I see a rainbow 


I see the beautiful creation of God and know that He loves me 
and I believe that He keeps His promises. 

And there in that alone I have 3 reasons why I say

 "Thank you God"

    1. Hi again Caroline, yes such a beautiful creation and I think we can't help but smile when we see one so that in itself is a good thing.

  7. What a beautiful site! Thank you for following His direction and posting this. I remember as a child reading about rainbows and never seeming to ever SEE one. As an adult they seem to show up so routinely these days - I have to sometimes wonder if it's God opening my eyes to truly see them as a needed reminder of His promise.

  9. I'm a firm believer that, when we write what we have a feeling to write, God blesses it no matter what our human brains try to tell us. The photo and editing is quite lovely. We all have many things for which to be grateful every day.
