Every morning a little girl walked daily to school and then in the afternoon she walked back home again.
One morning, although the weather was a little dubious and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to the elementary school that she attended.
As the day progressed, the winds got up, along with thunder and lightning. It was one of those times when you don’t really want to be outside, let alone be a parent with one of your children outside in the storm.
The mother of the little girl was quite naturally worried that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school, and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child.
Following the roar of the thunder, time after time lightning would cut through the sky like a flaming sword.
Being concerned, the mother got into her car and drove along the route to her child’s school.
Before long, she saw her daughter walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look and smile.
One flash of lightning followed another, each with the little girl stopping, looking at the streak of light and smiling.
Finally, the mother called her over to the car and asked, “What are you doing?”
The little girl answered, “God keeps taking pictures of me”.
