Fingerprint Friday...

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of god
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of god
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of god
So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? Here's how to join in.

I love going to Kansas, now that I've been gone for so long, it always brings back memories, good and bad. I love going to my dads house, it's not the house I grew up in, it's new and different but the love is still there. It's built on 10 acres of land, right down the street from my childhood home. I love looking into the back yard at different times of the year and seeing what God can do. At winter I get my Winter Wonder Land, tress and grass filled with snow and ice and even though I despise the cold, snow and ice it's still so pretty. In the spring and summer it's even better, especially this year, all the rain that they have gotten has made everything so green, full of life, thriving. So different then San Antonio, everything seems so dead, dry, and just hanging on to what it can to pull through this horrible horrible summer of heat and no rain. It amazes me what God can do... that just 600 miles away things are so different then my everyday. BUT God makes everything beautiful in his way, weather we see it or not. I'm thankful for what God has given me, even if we could use a little rain so we can look a little more like Kansas right now :)

Happy Friday!
