Today there’s a double rainbow in my sky. I saw it when I opened my eyes this morning. There lying next to me in bed was my beautiful wife and the beautiful baby growing inside of her womb. Both of them a gift from God. Both of them part of my life, and my life a part of theirs. What a gift. What a privilege. What a sight.
One year ago on this very day, I watched my wife hold a precious little child in her hand, Eli, and thereafter his twin brother or sister after a shattering miscarriage. It was the darkest storm we’d ever faced. It was brutal, and it was scary. Today, we still hold the scars from one year ago.
But God has been with us. He’s been faithful time and time again, and He’s held us up and pieced back together what was once broken. And for that I will be forever grateful.
My wife, Monica, has called this new little one our rainbow baby. And I believe that he (btw, we won’t know the gender until birthday) is our rainbow baby. He is our rainbow after the storm. But so is Monica. She is my rainbow. She is my gift from God after the storm. Her strength, her love, her passion, her friendship, her partnership, and her willingness to continue doing life right by my side is truly a gift. What an honor and what a privilege to be able to love this woman with all of my heart.
So today, there is a double rainbow in the sky. A promise from God that He will be with us through it all.
Monica, I LOVE YOU!
Thought this song would be a perfect way to express what I’m feeling right this very moment.
