Amazing Lightning Video

Amazing Lightning Storm in

Southern Wisconsin on July 22, 2013.

This happened last night, right above our house in WI.  Yep, God’s talking.  I’m listening…

Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?  (Job 37:15 NIV)
He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning he routed them. (Psalm 18:14 NIV)
The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning. (Psalm 29:7 NIV)
Send forth lightning and scatter the enemy; shoot your arrows and rout them. (Psalm 144:6 NIV)

That Old Rocking Chair

It was an old farmhouse with a wrap around deck
A circle driveway, squeaky front door
And oh, the stories Mama told
When she sat in that old rocking chair

*

She rocked back and forth with every word
Drinkin’ a glass of pink lemonade
Lookin’ outside she passed time away
with her stories of “Remember When?”

*

Stories of yesterday, moments frozen in time
marked the road she had traveled
The good and the bad, the happy the sad,
lessons she’d learned on the way

*

She’d reminisce about days gone by
and how different things are today
Mama’s stories would mark the years
Sittin’ in that old rocking chair

*

In the middle of a thunderstorm,
she’d bring us out on the porch
point at the lightning, laugh at the thunder
and tell us a story or two

*

Sitting in that old rocking chair
where every Mama is a Princess
and every Daddy’s a Superhero
who rides in to save the day

*

Mama sold the farm when us kids moved out
There was only one thing that I asked for
That old rocking chair marked my growing up years
With stories from yesterday
