To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;
To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?

Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?

"They say it is safe to be in your car in a thunder and lightning storm? Do not believe it! A bolt of lightning struck the truck in the front and then in the back, jumped through the front living room, dining room, out the window, took my car and then out through the Florida room. The truck is more the likely not able to be repaired and my car smells like fried wires, both are dead. The good thing is the house did not burn and we were not injured. After all Florida is the lightning capitol of the USA!"
