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.

The seasons are changing! It's sooo nice down here in Texas, we got our first "taste" of fall on the FIRST DAY! It was a shock for everyone - rain, the temperature in the 60's - it was amazing!! BUT of course this is Texas and that was just a nice tease by the next week we were back up in the 90's - the windows were closed and the AC's were turned back on.

Today though - I'm sitting here at work, wearing a fleece jacket with the windows open and it's already 10:30 am!! I know by noon this will change and the jacket will be off, the AC back on and the windows closed BUT I'm going to take every day of coolness that we get, even if it's only for a few hours in the morning!

So, now that it's actually October and officially fall there have been TONS of things on my mind. Like the fun fall things that we get to do - hikes on the weekends, fall festivals at Church, picking pumpkins, making yummy cold weather only foods (I'm weird and will only eat soup, stew, chili, etc... when it's cold out). ALSO - my new favorite thing to do - go to the CORN MAIZE!!! I went with friends last year and it was SOOOO much fun!

Have you ever heard of the Corn Maize? They have them ALL over the US and the world!! They took a corn friend and make a maze in it, it's pretty cool - last year we got turned around once or twice but it was still a blast! It's sooo family friendly - they have animals, a "corn cannon", an "popper" for the kids, tractor rides - very much on a farm but still SOOOO much fun! The BF doesn't know, but we are doing that this fall - I might even go more then once, with him and the girls from last year!!

I'm sure you're wondering how I'm going to link this up with how I see God in all of this, I was kind of wondering this myself. BUT just the fact that it makes me SO happy, that it can make every person there has a blast! That he changed the weather, makes it cooler - give us new colors, new life along with it. It is amazing to me. God is amazing - and I'm so thankful he's in my life, showing me these things no matter how big or small they might be!

Happy Fingerprint Friday!
