The Rainbow...

“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:16

Last Tuesday I had my Pre-Operation doctors visit, for the sinus surgery that I am to undergo this coming Thursday. While the Dr. went through the list of “risks” and told me what I needed to pay attention to, I will admit I got slightly nervous. The more I thought about it I’ll admit I was put into a rather weird depressed mood. I mean who wouldn’t after being told that “If you feel any pressure behind your eyes get to the E.R as fast as you can; because its blood pooling behind your eye cavity and if you have that back there for an hour you will be blind permanently.” And to top it off there is a 5% chance that the Dr. might accidently cut the lining between the eyes and the sinus’s or the lining between the brain and the sinus’s and the worse case scenario is that I’d die. I walked away from that appointment with a lot on my mind.
The next day I went to Araha Beach at 8:30 in the morning to just relax and have a talk with God. This is the reasoning for the bible verse, because while I sat on the beach I saw to the south a rainbow in amongst rain and storm clouds. I was immediately reminded of God’s promise to Moses that once he saw the rainbow he would know that everything would be ok again. I walked away from the beach that morning feeling so much peace that I haven’t even thought about everything that could go wrong since.
I ask for prayers this week, that I don’t get too nervous the days leading up to my surgery. Also please pray for Jason, he requested to take time off of work to take care of me. While we are looking forward to being able to spend time together, I know as well as the next person that taking care of someone can get frustrating, and Jason is more than likely going to need some patience.


  1. Oh my darling daughter, your upcoming surgery has been on my mind and in my prayers for over a week. I have asked God to give you a peace..HE DID! Our God is an AMAZING GOD! Keep looking to him. I am praying and wishing I could be there to help Jay. Tell him to call me after the surgery, no matter what time it is here. I Love YOU!

  2. I'm praying for you this week - thanks for sharing the verse! :)
