Lightning Tracks

A few weeks back we had a severe storm pass through our area. The next morning I noticed some branches on one of the trees had been striped bare on the top side. Having never seen a tree up close that had been struck by lightning I could only guess that was what had happen. Several days ago we had a gusty, and at times high-winds, kind of day. While walking the Boyz (That is what I call my dogs) I found this branch laying across our little potty-circuit and picked it up.

To my astonishment it was more like picking up a feather than a branch. Looking at the branch I was amazed how barren and smooth the top half was where the lighting embraced it but the bottom length was left untouched. Then I inspected the branch and discovered this: the path that the lighting took to reach the earth. As a lover of Nature and all the cool stuff it does I am glad I was not a tree that day of the storm.

Peace~ The Jagged Man

I am a 59 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.
