Rainbow May 9, 2013

 God set a rainbow in the clouds!    Genesis 9:8-17
Monday, May 6, 2013, Amory, Mississippi
Monday was a day of dark clouds and drizzling rain.
Late in the afternoon the sun broke through the clouds to show us this pretty rainbow.

Sir Isaac Newton gave the rainbow's colors the names we still use today:
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet
Would it seem strange if he had decided Red was really Pink, and Violet was Purple?

Have a beautiful day!

  2. A rainbow makes any sky beautiful and your beautiful capture shows just how that happens! And, no, there is nothing like a rainbow! Have a lovely weekend!

  3. That is a pretty rainbow. When I was a classroom teacher, we used a mnemonic device (I think that's how you spell it!) to help the children remember the sequence of the colors in the rainbow. The first letters of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet = Roy G Biv.

  4. What a beautiful rainbow! Thanks for joining us at OYGIF.
