He knows my mind



I have a habit of playing a CD while preparing dinner. As I listened to one of the CDs that I used to have in my good old Lancer last night, something struck me when it was playing ' Somewhere over the rainbow '.

I paused and thought carefully, we've yet seen a rainbow this year!

I have this thing for rainbow and other wonders in the sky. We sighted rainbow a few times last year during our spins ( a tug ), but not once in 2008.

And this morning, as I sent the Bear off at the carpark, there it was in the middle of a sleet!

The moment we saw it, a gush of joy washed over me and all at once, I felt my entire spirits lifted up!

I'm lost for words to describe my joy, all I know is, I feel my Lord so near and I'm totally comforted.

He knows my mind. Somehow, I'm once again assured, everything is in good hands...


"I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord." - Psalm 40:1-3

You must be really excited when seeing this... (I can imagine your hubby scream "Quick... camera camera!!!")

oohh... nice! When we're feeling down, I guess no other things can make us feel better than seeing rainbow. :-)

What coincidence! Last Sunday's message from my pastor has got something to do with rainbow. Right after church service as we were on our way home(it was drizzling), there was this prompting for me to look up at the grey cloudy sky and guess what? We saw a full rainbow! God is just Great! The rainbow message will continue this week, we will wait and see what in store for us this week! =)

ps. I love Cliff Richard version of Somewhere over the Rainbow.

Rainbows are amazing and always give me a lift. I don't know why, maybe we are right in the middle of two weather systems, but we get so many rainbows over our back garden!!! Always the same place. I never saw so many till I moved to this house!

I have mailed all the Secret Santa Christmas cards today. I've just put photo's of them all on my blog. I was careful to address your envelope clearly :) and I do hope it gets there in time. I am worried that I have left it too late :( but I was trying to give everyone time to send theirs in.

Thank you for a lovely post. You made me smile and I needed that today. Bit low, but I think it is just hormones, so I'm not worrying about it!

こんばんわ、スターダストさん
週末のひととき、のんびりと、私は。フィギアスケートをみながら、blogを訪問。
虹を見ながら、ランサーで最後に聴いた曲というのは、ちょっと、心に感じますね。
元気を出して、家族と共に、幸せを感じる、夜のひととき。
おすすめの曲は、スタンダードだけど、ミスティ。
そうそう、年賀状も書かなきゃね。

I love listening to music while cooking too. But my system broke down, n now i listen to my ipos while cooking. Anyone who walks into the kitchen would see me shaking my bum, while chopping onions n would'nt even realize someone came in, as my ears are all covered !
Love the rainbow :)
