THUNDER AND LIGHTNING
A story retold:
There was a young girl who walked every day to and from school. This one particular morning the weather was quite ominous. Large clouds formed in the sky as she made her daily journey to school. As she prepared to walk home, the winds began and thunder struck. Lightning illuminated the skies.
The mother of the young girl was concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she made her journey home by the sounds and sights. She feared even more that the electrical storm may strike her daughter as she made her way home. Following an unusually loud roar of thunder and lightning appearing like a flaming sword cutting through the sky, the mother rushed to her car to and headed down the route of the young girls travels.
Seeing her daughter, she slowed; as she did the mother watched as each flashing of lightning her young daughter would pause to look up to the skies and smile. Flash after flash followed one another and each time the little girl would pause and look up to the skies smiling. Confused, the mother finally called over to her young daughter and asked "What are you doing?"
The young girl answered, "smiling mommy, God just keeps taking pictures of me."
