This poem is based on a true event that happened May 11 and May 12, 2005

God's promises are yes and amen
He said wondrous signs he would send
Yesterday evening I was hoeing my garden
A gentle refreshing sweet rain was falling

I stopped a moment to take a rest
A light wind was blowing from the west
I looked at the sky and saw a wondrous sight
A double rainbow with colors so bright

Verse 11 of Psalm 62 came to my mind
Power belongs unto God, he's good and kind
He placed the rainbow as a token
Of his promise to Noah, it won't be broken

This morning I was standing by my pecan tree
The thing that I saw was amazing to me
Snow on the ground during the month of May
Reminded me of the manna he sent each day

Hast thou entered into the treasures of snow
God asked this question to Job, you know
The ground was warm yet the snow was cold
God owns everything, the silver and the gold

The beauty displayed by God in the bow
Encouraged my heart as my faith in him did grow
The snow on the ground was pure and white
Like Jesus his son, he is the truth and the light
