Lightening over Sydney Harbour
When I was little I would hide under the table when it was lightening and thundering, cry and making a big noise. I hated it. It was very scary.
These days I am slightly more mature!! Anyway, if I did climb under the table I am not sure I would be able to get back up!!
This is fortunate as we have been having quite a few thunderstorms lately, including at 5am yesterday morning (along with hail and pouring rain) and evening. In fact, as long as I am safely indoors I don't mind the thunder/lightening at all. I am not fond of driving during lightening, even though I am probably quite safe.
When we lived in Darwin we would get nightly thunderstorms during the wet season (monsoon) and I would lie awake at night watching the sky light up. It was quite magical. One of Gods wonders. God has complete control over the thunder, the rain, the hail, the sunshine, the wind and we shouldn't grumble with "too much rain", "not enough rain" . . . . . God knows what He is doing, however we do like to disagree with Him from time to time. However I do wish he would make the thunder a little quieter at 5am in the morning.
Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains. Psalms 147:8
PS I use to think (when I was small) that thunder was God re-arranging his furniture. Of course I always believed what my brothers told me!!
