Blogging is a Moving Meditation.

BLOGGING as a MOVING MEDITATION: Liminality's thin passage untangles as it weaves, fits in the ineffable nooks and crannies of my heart's prayer wall, like the cracks in pavement, mile markers on the road, windblown whimsical napkin poems written in eyeliner.

Fire Rainbow.



THIS IS A FIRE RAINBOW - THE RAREST OF ALL NATURALLY OCCURRING ATMOSPHERIC PHENOMENA.

CLOUDS HAVE TO BE CIRRUS, AT LEAST 20K FEET IN THE AIR, WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ICE CRYSTALS AND THE SUN HAS TO HIT THE CLOUDS AT PRECISELY 58 DEGREES.


This struck me this morning- The Lord has been speaking to me about "Windows of Time"- and about His Promises...

These windows are orchestrated by God... for appointments with HIM.
Where He can take the ice crystals around our hearts and turn them into Fire - with all the colors of our true identity.  
Rainbow of promise ..... faith to believe again, trust that eradicates betrayal, hope that is not deferred, but embraced.

I wrote a song when i was 12-    Rainbow in tear filled eyes......

Deep within the darkness lies quiet- silent tears
A heart bleeds from anguish - in a world filled with fears.
Lost and lonely people,  pain within their eyes.
No answer to an empty life - each day another dies.

But a promise was given .....
a long long time ago.
That a rainbow would be the sign.
We need the Son light
to make the rainbow live and see the hope in others lives.

Can you see the rainbow IN tear filled eyes,
in the early light of a new sun rise
Can you see the rainbow THROUGH tear filled eyes
in the early light of a new Son rise.

I can only show you, if you choose to see..
the rays of the rainbow that's living within me...
the choice is up to you my friend....
to know the truth within......
surpassing all the fear and doubt .....
that binds you in it's sin.

Can you see the rainbow ..... IN tear filled eyes....
in the early light of a new sun rise.
Can you see the rainbow ..... THROUGH tear filled eyes....
in the early light of a new Son rise.




That was written ~ 27 years ago... when i first came to Know Jesus.   When i saw that picture... it just came flooding back.  (pardon the pun)- now if i could just remember the chords.!

It's just that there are so many promises that He wants to resurrect in our Spirits and Hearts.... Where the sins of volition &&& the sins of omission have tried to portray as lies.  

One of my favorite lines from one of Stephen Roaches poems is.....
"Your promises are structures ALREADY formed."

They are solid- everlasting.....    There is a rainbow around the Throne.... as a reminder to God....

That rainbow in the picture reminded me that HE loves me beyond measure.  He is Able to take everyone of my failures, hurts and betrayals and paint a picture of HIS PROMISE... that HE is big enough to Love me - not just IN them.... but THROUGH them.

Just to add to this... The Lord showed me - from His Word..... that HE even speaks of one of HIS rarest phenomena I think that it's over the top..... soooooo i'm adding the verse....

Ps. 21!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You lifted him high and bright as a cumulus cloud,
then dressed him in rainbow colors.

shalom to the deepest places, cathryn
