About 9 million people have viewed this video, and when the man who took it was interviewed, the question inevitably came up, "were you smoking something?" (unfortunately he said he was) and now he's the joke of the internet world.
I can't help but think it's too bad. It's too bad that someone was so entranced with God's creation but nobody's giving attention to God on this one. It's all about a guy's reaction, not about the creator who made it happen.
How many times do I react in a way, that people only see me and not the God I'm supposedly head over heels in love with? Ugh. I write this, and wonder how much I'm going to take this to heart. But it's true, and if anything I have learned these past months, it's that my reactions aren't as easy to control as I once thought. I am human as can be.
Tonight, we had a double rainbow here in our part of the midwest. It was awesome. I failed to react in praise and just said, "that's nice." Hopefully next time, I'll think before I react!
