It's hard to not sometimes be superstitious! 

rainbow

In the early hours of the day, I wrote about superstition, rebirth, togetherness and that the most consistent change I can observe is in the sky. Today on my bike ride, I saw a rainbow. It's tempting to feel that the rainbow was sent for me, but rational to understand that it's my mind giving the rainbow significant meaning - not the other way around.

It is most certainly NOT superstition, Erik, it is indeed a sign from God! I mean, first you are captivated with the waters of Lake Calhoun, and then you turn your eyes to the sky. What do you get when you add light to those two things? A rainbow of course! And that rainbow is not just for you, but for all of your readers to get my message of how its appearance to Erik and his decision to post it is indeed a sign.

I believe that the rainbow is here for me to explain the mystery of the Trinity. Just as light that we see from the sun is a single color, God is a single being. But when we see the light in a different way, through a prism or through water, the multitudes of colors are all seen! This is how I can now describe to you all how to think of God as three persons, it is God just seen through a prism of sorts.

The most amazing thing to me is that I had never thought of it that way before seeing it through Erik’s eyes and thoughts over the last week.
Is there anyone who does not find rainbows deeply symbolic? I think not.

A rainbow does not offer evidence of divine communication or a three-in-one god. It's your own mind attaching meanings to perceptions. Give yourself some credit!
