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.

You know those days that you get up, look outside and just want to go back to bed? BUT you can't because you have to walk the dog and still go to work? Today was one of those days - we have some more fall like weather going on today - rain, temperatures in the 60's, cloudy overcast sky.

I love that God give us these days - even though we might not always appreciate them when they happen. I can tell you that I did not appreciate being rained on that I had to go back and change my cloths after walking my dog this morning. BUT then I remember - we PRAYED, we BEGGED for rain this summer - we PRAYED, we BEGGED for cooler temperatures, a little relief from the rain. So, this reminds me that even though we do not get what we ask for, right then and there God is listening. His ears are always open but what we WANT isn't always in HIS plan.

So, today when I go home from work and walk my dog in the rain (if it's still raining - if not then next time it is) I will THANK God that I'm getting soaked, that he is giving us life, that he is giving us relief.

I hope you all have a great Fingerprint Friday!



  1. We've had a lot of rain too but today was gorgeous - sunshine, blue skies and 80 degrees - hotter than normal for October. I did remember to tell God thanks. Happy Fingerprint Friday (and weekend) ~*~

  2. Amen to that! What a great attitude.
