In the morning, I said a simple prayer asking for many things. I asked for help with my role in primary at church, that my garden could grow, and that my testimony would be strengthened.

After getting ready, I decided to read my scriptures on the front porch. It was raining pretty hard, which was wonderful. Rain would help all the plants in my garden that I had just planted yesterday, and I wouldn’t have to go out and irrigate.

As I studied the scriptures, I notice the sun coming out from behind the clouds, while it was still raining. And sure enough, there was a fleeting rainbow.


I love morning rainbows, and it was a reminder of God and His love. But more than that, I remembered the song I planned on teaching the children today at church had the following lyrics:

I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain
And ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again
I want my life to be as clean as earth right after
I want to be the best I can and live with God again

The Lord directly answered my prayers. He provided rain for my garden. He gave me an experience I can share with the children to help teach them the song. And He strengthened my testimony of His presence and love.

    I pray for my garden to grow too. Seeds are finally starting to pop up when I checked on them today and I finally found clover out in my backyard that I had planted. Not a lot of it, but I think more is growing. That clover is a funny: I purposefully seeded it in my backyard, but the most clover I have right now is in my side gardens and my front lawn–where I didn’t plant it.
