Lightning reminds me of my faith
While looking off to the horizon I saw a flash of lightening. Lightening always reminds me of God.
It was a warm summer evening many years ago. My brother and I were sitting on our back deck talking late into the hours of the night, a usual past time of my family. We were going on about anything and everything. Then lightening struck. My brother didn't see it, and didn't believe me that I saw it splinter across the sky.
I said to him, "How cool would it be if I asked God to show you that there is lightening in the sky?"
At the moment I finished the question, he turned his head, and lightning lit up the sky.
We laughed in awe.
I joked that I would never again question God's existence (not to worry, my faith did not stand on that sole moment, but it was strengthened through His sense of humour).
