Spiritual Sundays - A Child's View of Thunderstorms

Hello Friends. I have a special aunt who emails me on a regular basis and we share a very close relationship. She is a Christian so I appreciate her input in my life. Today she sent me this sweet little email and I thought it very inspiring. Little ones can teach us so much. Would that we all could have the faith of a child! I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did.
Please remember to click on the Spiritual Sundays picture on my sidebar for more wonderful posts.

A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that day was questionable, and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to the elementary school.
As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with the lightning.
The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her little daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school and she feared the electrical storm might harm her child.
Full of concern, the mother quickly got into her car and drove along the route to the 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. Another and another flash of lightning followed quickly and with each flash, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.
When the mother's car drove up beside the child, she lowered the window, and called to her, "What are you doing?" The little girl answered and said, "I am trying to look pretty because God keeps taking my picture."
May God bless you today and everyday as you face the storms that come your way.
