Yesterday was a bad day turned good. I woke to a messy home, wild children, an upset stomach, and a major attitude. The last thing I felt like was putting on my big-girl panties to deal with my grown-up responsibilities. I laid in bed and cried...like a baby. I could feel God telling me to come to Him in prayer, but I did not want to. I cried some more. I don't really know exactly why I was so upset, but it was a pre-determined bad day. I eventually gathered every ounce of faith I had in my body, knelt down and laid out my problems to my Heavenly Father. Nothing got solved right then, but good things started to happen. My mom came over to help me with an issue that I should have been more grown-up about. The boys were on their extra-good behavior and we were able to share some sweet moments. Somehow, I managed to get my house together. And some really great stuff happened to the Mesa weather. It rained, then it SNOWED, and then it hailed!!! Afterwards, a bright beam of pink light permeated my living room. I stepped outside and saw this, except a million times better. I wish I could have jumped on the roof to get the ENTIRE rainbow...both ends of it. It was very Lisa Frank of that rainbow to shine its majestic colors across the sky. I thought about the symbolism of a rainbow, and I felt God's love. I needed this moment, and I am almost positive He put that rainbow in the sky just for me.
