It was around 3 in the afternoon on a cloudy, moody day. I was feeling down that whole day, when suddenly the sun came out. With roughly only two hours of left of daylight, I left the house for a walk. I felt little raindrops when I walked out of the door, but I decided to still go. Couldn’t see much due to my hoodie, but I just kept going while trying to clear my mind.
I saw an old lady walking towards me, and then she asked me ‘do you see that?’. She had a confused look on her face, and at first I thought she was going to complain about something in the street. But then I took my hoodie off, and saw a huge rainbow 🌈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The old lady asked me if I knew the meaning of a rainbow. I told her that I knew the story of Noah’s Ark. And then she said these beautiful words: ‘the rainbow is the promise of God that everything will be okay, no matter what. Now look at it, before it’s gone’. She walked away peacefully, and I stared at that rainbow until it disappeared. Crying and smiling at the same time. That lady was my angel that day, giving me an euphoric feeling of love and hope.
Now I want to give the same message to you. If you’re going through a hard time, realize that it won’t last forever. Try to hold on to the good, and learn from the hardships. Trust that you will come out stronger ❤️
