When You’re Scared of the Thunder
A little girl I know says she’s not scared of thunder anymore. That’s because the thunder is God, up in Heaven, bowling with her grandpa.
May all that you see
— and all that you hear —
remind you that a Great Big God
is right there with you.
“Listen to it!
Listen to his thunder,
the rolling, rumbling thunder
of his voice.”
— Job 37:1 (The Message)

I thought of thunder that way too when I was afraid. Have to admit, I still do sometimes! Hope you have a lovely sabbath (and your muscles loosen up from the bowling :).
I’m still “feelin'” it. Ugh. Sooo out of shape. Left shoulder. (I’m left-handed…)
Happy Sunday, sweet friend.
Love the pic and the explanation and the scripture. You have a gift, sister!
I love thunder. We’re supposed to get some today. Good day.
I will remember that.
My momma always said that thunder was the angels bowling… having fun for a little bit because all was well with the world. =)
Love this. I’m with Pat–angels bowling. The lightning means someone got a strike.
I was also told that God was moving His furniture. 🙂
According to my great-grandfather, when it thundered God had turned over his tater wagon. 🙂
“I hear the rolling thunder,” –my favorite line in the hymn “How Great Thou Art.”
I love it…I can’t wait to share this with my grandchildren….
God is a mighty God….
oh, that’s sweet. and i appreciate the encouragement of your words…
Reminds me of John 12 and that some heard and some didn’t.
Amen. I didn’t know God was a bowler, but it sort of makes sense now that you mention it
I did not hear that line until I was an adult. And I can’t quite remember what explanation we were given. Probably because I’m further away from 40 than you are, in another direction. 😉
Your mom and I probably just gave you the scientific explanation that thunder is the result of the lightning and told you to go back to sleep.
My grandmother always made us sit still and turn off the lights when the thunder roll. She said was at work and it was best not to interfere.
Thanks for linking up, Jennifer!
Great photo editing! Not sure how you did that but it is cool. I love thunder.
I took the photo from my iPhone in a dimly-lit bowling alley Friday night. I uploaded the photo to Picnik.com. I used a photo effect called “Pixelate,” which gave it that funky feel. On Picnik, you can add text, so I chose a zany-fun font. And there you have it!
Mmmm…I have missed you. 🙂 Didja hear that I am coming to Iowa????
