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
called,
"What are you  doing?"
The child answered,
I am trying to look pretty because God  keeps taking my  picture."
