My friend Gill Henwood, who wrote about Tarn Hows and created the poem has sent me another photo she took of a rainbow over the Lakeland fells.
A reminder to us in these difficult winter days when there is so much heartache and anguish around that there is always a rainbow. God is constantly walking through the darkness and showing us the promise of light and that, indeed, all this shall pass. Or as St. John of the Cross puts it so much better:
Nowhere is this more true than in the Christmas Incarnation of Jesus, the light and Saviour of the world. He is the rainbow bringing a new perspective and promise of what is to come. Jesus is God’s glance of love pushing back the darkness and pointing our hearts to a new beauty.
Thank you Gill for this reminder of God’s love and care for us.
