On this cloudy, dreary day being a rainbow in someone’s life seems like a daunting task. There are some days when you just want be gloomy. However, for some it’s not the clouds or the rain which is darkening their lives but much greater forces which are keeping the light from shining.
To be a rainbow also requires that you be a light from which the rainbow can be seen. I heard a lecturer today tell his audience that he has a ten/two rule. He says that if he’ll give a hurting person just two uninterrupted minutes a day for ten days he can help change their life. Two minutes, ten times is all it takes for a person to trust, listen and receive. I’m not sure this is always the case but I do know even on the most dreary of days every person I meet can still get two minutes of light from me and if this can change a life, put a rainbow in their skies, its worth every second.
