Rainbow Tears

My wise and wonderful sister Clytie once told me years ago--you can't have a rainbow without the rain.

This morning I found a most perfect quote given by another dear sister of mine. It suits this day of rainbows.

Almost any rainbow
Finds a place to start,
In a rain stained heaven,
Or a tear stained heart…
--Lillian Everts
.
Take hope--sometimes sadness can result in beauteous joy.

Beth, this is so gorgeous.

Clytie said...

If tears are liquid sorrow
From a heart that's overflowed ...
Then rainbows from those tears are gifts
From God's compassionate Throne.

Hang in there, little birdie.

Don't you just love this poem when I read it I thought of you and Clytie. Your picture is perfect with it, and Sissy Cea's answering verse inspired. Good job Ladies it's an honor to call you sisters.

Oh how true your words ring. The rainbow of Hope, The Promise of better days. May we always have a rainbow heart filled with Love and Hope. Past the tears and pain, Joys will come. Again Inspiring photo and poem. Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P

Beth,
Somehow my rainbows never are as radiantly beautiful on film as in person. You have beautiful photographs and nice posts to compliment them.
