"He loads the clouds with moisture; he scatters his lightening through them. At his direction they swirl around over the face of the whole earth to do whatever he commands them."Job 37:11,12
These are holly trees, aren't they pretty? They say that if your house has holly around it, it will not get struck by lightning. Something about the shape of the leaves. Quite a few people seem to know this, and I found it on the computer, as well. I don't know if it is true. My friend found a bible passage where it suggests that the lightening has to ask God before it strikes anywhere. Wish I could remember where that verse is, perhaps the one at the end of my post? Well, I don't know about that, though it is true that nothing happens unless God lets it. Many years ago, we had a holly bush in the side yard, but we gave it away because it was prickley and hard for Phil to work around. With all this bad weather and storms we have been having, I think I want one again.
"Do you send the lightening bolts on their way? Do they report to you, "Here we are?"
