I heard this wonderful story. A mom was on the way to pick up her 6 year old daughter at the school and it started to begin to rain. All of a sudden, when she parked in front of the school, she saw her little daughter running towards her. And it was starting to thunder, lightning, and started to really pour.
And then she started noticing that her daughter was doing something very, very strange, exhibiting some very strange behavior. As the daughter was running towards the car, she would, every time the lightning flashed, she would stop, look at heaven, smile and then run, run towards the car again.
And then another lightning, boom, and flash happened again and the little daughter stopped, looked up towards heaven and smiled and started running again. She did this multiple times until she finally reached the car soaking wet, getting into the car and mommy said, “Honey, what were you doing? What are you doing, you’re all soaked? Why are you doing that?” She said, “Mommy, I had to look good. God was taking my picture!” (laughter)
