I’ve recently read an excerpt from Angela Watson, Educator who was fortunate to be in the audience and hear from Maya Angelou. Thought you would ‘get’ what Dr. Angelou means when she talks about hope….
“When Maya took the stage, she quoted Genesis 9:13: “I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” Most people focus on the second half of that scripture, but Maya keyed in on the first: I have set my rainbow in the clouds. God placed a thing of great beauty not in the clear blue sky where everyone could clearly see it, but in the clouds, where it may be partially obscured but no less wondrous. Sometimes clouds darken the sky and make it hard to see the light, but God places a rainbow in the clouds and gives us the possibility of seeing hope.”
Even in the dark clouds, the difficulty, the effects of brain injury, God places a rainbow in you!
