A Child’s View of Thunderstorms

When you read this, you will never think of Thunderstorms the same way again.

This should make you smile!! 

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 concerned that her daughter would be 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 beside the child, she lowered the window and called,

“What are you doing?”

The child answered, “I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture.”





May God Bless You Today and every day as you face the storms that come your way !!

    Ha! What a great thought! I love this. We are in our hurricane season here along the Gulf Coast so I will remember this one. Thanks so much, Coach. Happy Father’s Day to you.

    Very good, Coach. Children see things very differently than we do.

    What a sweet thought.I always loved thunderstorm and growing up in Italy we used to have lots over summer and as kids used to count how many between the thunder and the lightning and the number was how far the rain was⛈
