A simple but profound way to thank everyone who is self-giving at this point is to applaud our NHS helpers and carers. Likewise, so that children can take pictures of rainbows to give to others – especially those in hospitals, nursing homes and who live alone. My husband’s pastor passed this story on through the rainbow. If you haven’t heard it yet, I hope you will enjoy it:
It was once when all the colors in the world started to argue. Everyone claimed that she was the best, the most important, the most useful, the favorite:
Green said: “I am clearly the most important. I am the sign of life and hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves – without me all animals would die. If you look at the landscape, you will see that I am in the majority. “
Blue interrupted him: “You only think of the earth, but look at the sky and the sea. It is water that is the basis of life and that is drawn from the blue sea by the clouds. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, you would be nothing but busy bodies. “
Yellow chuckled: “You are all so serious. I bring laughter, happiness and warmth to the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow and the stars are yellow. Every time you look at the sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no more fun. “
Orange next started blowing his own trumpet: “I am the color of health and strength. I may be short, but I am valuable because I serve the inner needs of human life. I carry all the important vitamins. Think carrots and pumpkins, oranges, mangoes and papaya. I don’t stay around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that nobody thinks of any of you. “
Red couldn’t stand it any longer. He shouted: “I am ruler over all of you, blood, life blood. I am the color of danger and courage. I am ready to fight for one thing. I bring fire into my blood. Without me, the earth would be as empty as that Moon, I am the color of passion and love, the red rose, poinsettia and poppies. “
Purple rose to its full size. He was very tall and spoke with great pomp: “I am the color of royalty and power. Kings, chiefs and bishops have always chosen me because I am a sign of authority and wisdom. People don’t ask me; they listen and obey. “
Indigo spoke much quieter than everyone else, but just as resolutely: “Think of me. I am the color of silence. You hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial. I represent thoughts and reflections, dawn and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and for inner peace.
And so all the colors boasted, everyone convinced that they were the best. Their argument grew louder. Suddenly there was an astonishing flash of brilliant white flash; Thunder rolled and boomed. The rain started to rain relentlessly. The colors all squatted in fear to comfort themselves.
Then the rain said: “You stupid colors, fight each other and try to dominate the rest. Do you know that God made you all for a special purpose, unique and different? He loves you all. He wants you all. Join your hands together and come with me. We will stretch you across the sky in a great arc of color to remind you that he loves you all and that you can live together in peace. a promise that he is with you and a sign of hope for tomorrow. “
And when God used good rain to wash the world, He put the rainbow in the sky, and when we see it, we should remember that He wants us all to appreciate each other. (An Indian legend)
