To get the rainbow you got to put up with the rain. (Dolly Parton, entertainer)

It’s not quite like looking for the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That’s a fruitless search. But the rainbow may be real. Rain is essential and we’re disappointed in it only when it interferes with our personal agenda. But, even then, if we can discover the right ray of sunshine in the rain, our hearts can be lifted up a bit by the sight of the rainbow.

Then God said to Noah, “Yes, this rainbow is the sign of the covenant I am confirming with all the creatures on earth.” (Genesis 9:17)
