God's Fireworks

So every 4th of July, our family always takes everyone out to go see fireworks. Sometimes it is not always the same place every year, but every year we never fail to see firework displays somewhere. In a way, it is one of the family traditions our family has for the 4th of July. I have always thought fireworks were so cool. So beautiful and captivating in a way.

Well around 3 to 4 years ago, on the 4th of July, we were on our way home from a fireworks display. Everyone was so excited and chatty about the beautiful display we had just seen. Everyone had a different perspective of the display as well. I had looked up into the clear, starry night sky when I saw bright flashes of light in the sky. There was no explanation for them, because there was not a storm cloud in sight. I thought they were the coolest thing and had told my parents, "Look Mom and Dad! It's God's Fireworks!" Everyone had laughed and agreed.

Well now, 3 to 4 years later, these mysterious light flashes still happen. Always on the 4th of July. Never failing. (: Tonight we all thought there would be none of God's fireworks because, one again, there was not a storm cloud in the sky. Well when we were driving home, just as I had turned and looked at the sky, I saw God's bright flashes of fireworks in the sky. We saw them 3 to 4 times before they were done. It's something so simple, but something that I hope continues to happen for the rest of my life. Just a little something that says, "I love you, this is just for you." Keep on the look out for little things that are "God's Fireworks" for you. They may or may not be the same thing. But do you have something that happens that you can just tell it was God? Be on the look out for these little things in life itself, not just the 4th of July. You never know, you might form a tradition with God. (:
