I was on my way to a funeral home one late afternoon for a wake, when I saw this very beautiful rainbow from a distance and what made it more attractive and fascinating was-its backdrop was the color yellow and red leaves on the trees of autumn and the bright ray of the sunlight that just came out after a whole rainy and stormy day. It was then when I thought “What a beautiful way for God to remind us that after the storms of Life there is a beautiful ladder he prepares for all of us through a rainbow assuring us of the reality of the Resurrection.” It made sense afterwards when I reached the funeral home and met the daughter and the son of the deceased outside also looking for the rainbow and how they related to me that their mother loved rainbows and that she even asked that on her funeral “somewhere over the rainbow” should be sung. Jesus said : "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die." (John 11: 23-27).
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
