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
Youre 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.

1. Blog with your interpretation of God's fingerprints. Be sure to link back here so others can find the entire list of participants!
2. After you've posted your blog, sign the Mr. Linky below. Have fun exploring the other links as well!
Please only sign in if you're participating and sharing pics. Hopefully this will make us look at things through fresh eyes throughout the week!
-----------------------
I thought I could never do it - have kids a year and a half apart. That first few months of having a toddler and a newborn I thought I'd lose my mind. But then I got to watch them become best friends as they grew older. They absolutely adore each other and I'm so grateful God spaced them out the way He did. In case you didn't know, God really does know what he's doing. ;-) I have a tendency to question it, but He knows. He knows.

Please remember to keep praying for Cora. This is one case where I definitely don't understand God, but have to trust that He knows what He's doing.

I grew up an only child and always wished I had a brother or sister. They are so blessed to have each other, and you to have them!

Cute pic! My daughter and nephew who are 16 months apart are best friends! It's so fun to watch them play.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Yes, God really does know what He's doing - good reminder :)

Your kids are so cute and it's wonderful they have such a great, loving relationship together. My sister and I were 6 years apart and we didn't get along too well until we each moved out of the house! I can see how a smaller age difference can really help that bond earlier on!

I'm going to have to participate in this post some week. I just love the idea. My husband and I do not have kids yet but I definitely see God's fingerprints all over the place.

Take Care!

Glad they get along. My sister and I are only 18mths apart and we do not under most circumstances, even as adults. We try though and that is what matters.

Such a lovely photo! I have kids that are two years apart, almost to the day. There are days when my husband asks me how everything is going and I just don't have any words...it is tough. However, there are other days, when I feel so energized by my kids that anything is possible.

The highs and the lows of parenting...it doesn't ever really end, does it?
