A Welcome Reprieve

As I've been writing out Christmas cards today, the weather has been mostly cloudy with an occasional rain shower.  Since my hand was getting writer's cramp I was looking for any excuse to take a break from this task, but I had promised myself I would have them all done today.  So, I continued writing.  Writing and writing until I looked up and noticed it was raining pretty hard and the sun was out.  Like any good blogger, I grabbed the camera and ran to the window.  And what to my wondering eyes should appear??

A rainbow ... in December.
It was stretching across the sky...

Peeking through the trees ...

And descending  upon the housetops.

Such an unexpected sight at this time of year and such a wonderful excuse to take a break from writing out the Christmas cards :).

Just a reminder:  If you haven't signed up for my giveaway and would like to you have until tomorrow at midnight.  Click here to sign up.

I'm off to finish up those cards now.

Happy Sunday to you.



  1. How beautiful! You captured some gorgeous photos of this! Coincidentally...we went to Rainbow Springs last night! Your post makes me smile! Hugs! ♥

  2. Oh what a sweet moment for you to share with us! My mother has worked on Christmas cards all day. I didn't join her. Guess that means that I won't be sending them out in 2010.

  3. What a glorious sight on a rainy day.

  4. You got some fantastic shots of the beautiful rainbow God gave you to enjoy at just the right moment.

  5. I need to start my Christmas cards tomorrow.....a rainy day would be good, but we haven't had rain in ages. Guess I'll have to do them anyway.

    Wow, your rainbow pictures are so beautiful!!! Especially the one looking through the trees....

  6. That is so awesome! A Christmas time miracle to be sure..just beautiful :D

  7. Lovely rainbow shots - a wonderful reason to take a break from writing cards.

  8. Rainbows never cease to amaze me, especially when they appear in December. You captured it beautifully in each picture. What a special gift to you in the middle of Christmas card signing. Hope you have a good week ahead!

  9. I guess that was God's way of telling you to take a break! :-)
    Absolutely beautiful!!

  10. Such beautiful photos! A wonderful break indeed!

  11. How wonderful. A beautiful sight. I tried to catch one all summer to take a picture of and never spotted one rainbow. Maybe this Summer.

  12. Dear Kim...Such a beautiful rainbow! We had a dusting of snow to enjoy yesterday as I was writing and addressing our Christmas Cards! We put them in the mail my "to do" list is becoming a bit shorter! Thank you for all of the kind comments you share on my "little space"...always love hearing from you! Blessings ♥ Teri

  13. I love rainbows, and you have some great photos. Thanks for sharing. I'm hoping to get Christmas cards done tomorrow...not my favorite thing to do!

    Have a good week,

  14. Kim, The rainbow is gorgeous. God is so good to let you see that!! Your day sounds peaceful and productive. Kathi
