A Child's View of Thunderstorms (8/16/12)
A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the
weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming,
she made her daily trek to school. As the afternoon progressed,
the winds whipped up, along with lightning.
The mother of the little girl felt frightened as she
walked home from school.
She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child. Full
of concern, the mother got into her car and quickly drove
along the route to her child's school. As she did, she saw her
little girl walking along.
At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile.
More lightning followed quickly and with each, the little girl
would look at the streak of light and smile
When the mother drew up besidethe child, she lowered the window and
"What are you doing?"
The child answered,
I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture."
