Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

"Do Not Arouse or Awaken Love Until It So Desires"

We have no right to develop and nurture the emotion attraction that we call love until we make a life-long commitment to serve. The expression of this emotion before the time is right has given many people a broken heart.

“Do Not Arouse or Awaken Love until It So Desires”

The red felicities of love
Can launch your heart into the sky—
But caution is required above,
’Cause you need wings before you fly;

Don’t pluck the lovely, tempting flower
Until you hands are trained to serve—
When time is right, your heart will soar,
And reach the heights that love deserves.

Wow beautiful poem! And I agree...

"Don’t pluck the lovely, tempting flower
Until you hands are trained to serve—
When time is right, your heart will soar,
And reach the heights that love deserves."
