Rainbow Vision

by Devora Gila Berkowitz

What do you do when you see a rainbow?

Do you stop whatever you're doing to behold its mystical beauty? Or look around for someone to share it with? 

The rainbow is G-d's sacred promise to never destroy the world again. A colorful connection between heaven and earth. Its only catch: it has to be seen (Bereshit 9:14). 

Who is it seen by?

I'd like to imagine that both we and G-d are eyeing that image together. We on earth, G-d in heaven, connected together by the rainbow.

So the next time you stop to stare at a rainbow, you're not alone -- G-d is looking at it with you.
