P.O.P. Nature Study: Goodbye to Bridgeton

Carol and her family move from the town of Bridgeton to Blackberry Inn. A storm complete with sleet greets them at the inn. Carol can't help but wonder if it's a bad omen.

But inside the inn...Emma has fixed a delicious vegetable soup and biscuits for the travelers. The men go outside to unload the moving van and the children summon their mother to come outside. A beautiful full rainbow is sighted in the distance over a field and apple orchard.

Carol and Michael take this as a promise that their new life is worth trying.

Questions:

Do we look for bad omens in life's journey? Or for beautiful promises of the blessings waiting ahead for us?


When was the last time you saw a rainbow? Use a prism at a sunny window to make a rainbow on the wall with your children.


Have you ever lain on your back in the grass to watch the clouds? Your children may welcome the idea of keeping a cloud chart for a few weeks.
