Rainbow In The Sky
Cause in a town called sorrow there was joy
Yes, and there I met the painless tear
Freed, he expressed emotions that egos fear
My life is full of colors, yeah my mind is clear
David Nesta ¡°Ziggy¡± Marley (born 17 October 1968) is a Jamaican musician and leader of the band, Ziggy Mar-
ley and the Melody Makers. His 2003 single ¡®Rainbow in the sky¡¯ is a fantastic positive raggae song about faith
and promise and finding joy. The rainbow we all see in the sky, according to what is written, was placed there by
God as a reminder to him and a promise to us. ¡°I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant
between Me and the earth. And it shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be
seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all
flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh.¡± What¡¯s even more interesting is that in
his first vision from God, the prophet Ezekiel revealed, ¡°As the rainbow appears that is in the cloud in the day of
rain, so was the appearance of His brightness all around.¡± There¡¯s more. The apostle John, ¡°looked, and behold, a
door opened in heaven, and He who was sitting, was in appearance like a jasper stone and a sardius stone, and
a rainbow was around the throne.¡± So if the rainbow is the very likeness of God¡¯s light, then it¡¯s true what Ziggy
says, there is a rainbow in the sky ¡°all the time¡±. When you realize this, it becomes much easier to find ¡°mercy in
every sunrise¡± and be ¡°born again from the womb of the night¡±.
When you know that the clouds will pass and the sun will come out and the beauty of God¡¯s presence in the
rainbow awaits you, then you become free of the grip of fear, and things become clear. You just have to look for
the rainbow in everything. Like Ziggy says, ¡°Don¡¯t be blind.¡± See through the material into the spiritual with your
minds eye, and know that no matter what you may be going through, if you focus on the rainbow you will find joy,
even ¡°in a town called sorrow¡±.
No matter how cloudy it gets or how much it rains, you can be assured that it will not destroy you. There¡¯s a
rainbow in the sky to prove it.

The silverhawk feather that graces our front page was chosen for it¡¯s significant spiritual
symbolism. Hawks are symbols of spirit, wisdom and power. The hawk is the messenger.
It is also about visionary power and guardianship, the hawk is very protective of the young
in its nest. It teaches us about providing for family and self. Hawk teaches us to be obser-
vant and to pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don¡¯t use,
a blessing for which we haven¡¯t expressed gratitude, or a message from Spirit. The hawk
has keen eyesight, it is about opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us.
Hawk is also about new beginnings and always moving forward along the correct path.
