My Winter Rainbow

As my pen flows with the ink of

Wintery Blues

It finally dries up, exhausted.


But then, she’s there:

The Silver Lining;

Darkness, then Light,


My Winter Rainbow!

Hope now floods parchment.

Sun peeks through bleakness.


I run outside to soak in its presence;

Vibrant colors outshine

sunlit trees which dance, delighted.


She’s powerful and bold

No fear of the cold,

She invites her double.


She sings, Don’t worship me;

I’m God’s Great Promise!

My Creator made me beautiful.


I am a colorful covenant,

The World shall not flood

Ever again in its entirety.


I know this, because

God said it’s so.

But I’m more; a reminder:


That God keeps every promise

For you, for me

And Jesus sets us free!


Because covenants are

Both old and new,

Yet all these promises remain true:


Unbroken, unchanged, unfailing.

Old leads to new

Over the years, season to season


My Winter Rainbow brings hope,

Because God’s Love, His Son,

Is also for everyone.

“And God said, ‘This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. 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’ ” (Gen. 9: 12-16).

“For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance–now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant” (Heb. 9:15 NIV).
