I’ve been privately going through some times of uncertainty in the past few weeks. Change is uncomfortable, and I can’t make up my mind. I’m not sure about the path ahead. I don’t know if I’m making the right decision.
But I have been coming across rainbows and somehow it’s a bit comforting.
Here’s a photo of a rainbow in the sky. I saw this near my office one evening.
Here’s another picture. If I reach the office early, the morning sun is refracted through the office glass door, casting these rainbow colours on the wall.
I like this photo. The colours really contrast with the grey wall.
Finally I came across a third rainbow while visiting the KL Bird Park.
The rainbow is at the base of the waterfall.
I can’t explain why rainbows are comforting. Maybe it’s some memory of the story of Noah. The rainbow was actually a covenant between God and Noah not to flood the earth to kill everyone again. Kind of scary if you think about it (the part where everyone dies). But Sunday School teachers always use the story to talk about God’s promises and I think that’s the association I have in my mind.
Maybe it’s the colours of the different wavelengths of light. Always the same sequence. Consistent. Rainbows are really beautiful to look at.
