After two full weeks away from Singapore, on the eve of my birthday, I finally got to enjoy a restful sleep at home.
I was happy. Happy to be home. Happy to have had my caregroup celebrate my birthday with me.
25 February 2009:
I found it really cool that the table calendar in my room should, on this very day, be turned to the page with the following verses:
"To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God - children born not of natural descent...but born of God" (John 1:12-13 NIV).
It was as if my Heavenly Daddy could not wait to remind on my birthday that I am His child. :-)
And I found it really really cool that before the day (which was cool and peaceful, the way I wanted it to be) ended, I got to see the biggest rainbow I had ever seen in my life.
I could have so easily missed the rainbow.
It was around 7.10pm in the evening, I was in Ang Mo Kio Center, just had my dinner, and was walking down the street toward the MRT station, when I saw a friend's text on my mobile phone telling me about the sighting of a double rainbow.
I looked up, and there, in front of me, was a huge brilliant rainbow in the canvas of the evening sky.
I gasped. It was an awesome sight to behold. "This must be the biggest rainbow I've ever seen in my entire life," I said to myself.
Because of its sheer size, I had to turned my head from left to right (as if I was watching a tennis match) to see it in its entirety.
The rainbow was so big and so beautiful - so big and so beautiful that it felt unreal to me. I blinked my eyes several times to make sure what I was seeing was real. It was.
And within a minute or so, the rainbow disappeared.
I was reminded of the rainbow I saw in Israel. http://livelearnloveleavealegacy.blogspot.com/2009/01/after-week-of-touring-in-jordan-and-in.html
I was reminded of God's everlasting covenant of peace.
I was awed. I felt so blessed and so loved.
To me, the rainbow was a big and beautiful birthday gift for me from heaven. :-)
