double rainbow in our front yard
double rainbow in our front yard

Last night I stepped outside in the “golden light” to see if I could capture the gorgeous fall foliage on the mountains surrounding our home, and what I saw literally took my breath away.

Right outside our front door (so close that I couldn’t get it all on camera before it started to disappear) was a full-on double rainbow, with both ends of the brighter rainbow fully anchored on the ground. Like the original double-rainbow guy, I probably sounded a little crazy as I yelled for my family to quickly come see, but it was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen, and I am so, so thankful that I went outside when I did!

To make it even sweeter, my sensitive, insightful five year old said, “God sent that as a promise for somebody.” Yes, sweet girl. Yes, he did.

Here are some of my favorite posts from around the blogosphere this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
