A Child’s View of Thunderstorms

Hello friends!

I came across this wonderful message and wanted to share it with you.

A Child’s View of Thunderstorms 

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 ” Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so . . .’Love the people who treat you right. Pray for those who don’t “

“I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it”  ~ Mark 10:15

God bless you!

  1. That brought a tear to my eye. I’ve had a challenging day with someone who has a lot of bitterness and resentment. So this really hit home ” Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so . . .’Love the people who treat you right. Pray for those who don’t “. That’s my mantra today. Thanks so much for posting!

  2. Great story Jeannie! Now I know what to do in a thunderstorm, and every other day – just keep smiling. My friend and spinning instructor always says, “Your brain can’t hold onto two different emotions at once. So if you smile and choose to be happy, you will have a very hard time being sad.” Thanks for this. 🙂
