One More Time

Back years ago, I found a rainbow to stick on our stationwagon window.  My idea was to remind the children and I that God keeps His promises.  It worked; we couldn’t help but see it every day and we talked about that biblical principle a lot.  I had no idea the rainbow had become a symbol for homosexuality!  

Use it anyway.  God put the rainbow in the sky as a sign of His faithfulness.

One more thing.  God promised Noah He would never destroy the earth again.  He would always take care of it.  The sun would come up each day; the moon would light the night; the four seasons would keep coming around (Genesis 8:22).  Your children or grandchildren need to hear this.  There is something settling about it.  Secure.  Their world is scary; they aren’t sure what is real and what is pretend.  You can remind them of this promise every day.  Watch the sunset together. Look for rainbows.  Talk about the moon.  And talk about how God will take care of it all.

“Then the LORD said in His heart, ‘I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I destroy every living thing as I have done….never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth'” (Genesis 8:21;9:11).

About Carol Brandt

I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
