We live in a ‘rainbow world’.  Our lives are spent in an era of God’s grace, after the Flood and before the end of time.

It’s a beautiful world we live in, isn’t it!  And the rainbow is a beautiful symbol of the earth’s loveliness.  It sums up what the world offers, by way of colour and variety.  The rainbow is a sign of God’s grace, a demonstration that He promises to keep the world going until the end of time.

In this blog, one thing is certain – apart from that I’ll be including as many photos as possible! – the posts will follow a particular order.  My posts will stick to the order of the seven rainbow colours.   (I might have to jog my memory by reciting, ‘Richard of York gave battle in vain’ – were you taught this way of remembering the rainbow at school?)  My colour-themed posts will go round and round in a circle, so when I reach ‘violet’, it’ll be back to ‘red’ again….!

So for each post, I’ll be connecting what I write to the colour I’m up to in the rainbow pattern.  Sometimes, I’ll use a photo featuring that colour as a way of sparking ideas.  I am not promising to add much to our understanding of what colours signify.  But I am hoping to convey something of the beauty of the world, while pointing to the beauty that is found in God.

I hope you’ll enjoy the posts I send out – they’ll probably be a mix and match of poetry, photographs and thoughts revolving around God’s holy Word, the Scriptures.

Great to see you up and blogging. Looking forward to your posts about the colour purple.

Thanks. I’m wondering if you are a fan of purple, or if you’re wondering how on earth I’ll come up with enough thoughts about purple!
