God Made A Rainbow Promise

I was just a little girl I guess about the age of three.
When after the rain a beautiful rainbow I did see.
I asked my mother where it came from and why was it up there?
Then my mother pulled out the Bible and she had this to share.
Once upon a time long long time ago
God created the earth and it became violent so
God decided He would destroy every man, and child.
Then He saw a man named Noah and his family meek and mild.
So God told Noah to build a great big ship and He called it an ark.
Mama said it was bigger than our little cities park.
Then God chose all the animal male and female
He sealed in Noah and his family and the ark was ready to sail.
The people laughed and called ole Noah a fool
But they didn’t know Noah had attended God’s Holy School.
It wasn’t long till the rain began to fall from the sky.
People had never seen rain and they then wondered why.
Soon the water came up to the floors.
Then before long it came up to the doors.
People began crying and shouting for Noah to let them in.
They didn’t know God was the one who shut OUT all the sin.
Before long the water had drown all living things and their cried could no longer be heard.
It was too late to listen to God’s Holy Word.
It rained very hard for forty long days and nights.
God provided for the ark and Noah’s family His bright Son’s light.
Then suddenly the rain stopped and a beautiful rainbow appeared.
It’s colors stretched all across the earth God’s way of showing no one need again fear.
For He promised never to destroy the earth with water again
And this is really how the rainbow majestically began.
