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!

This week's fingerprint just has to be Cora. Who knew that a tiny baby could be such a witness to people worldwide?
If you're not familiar with her story, you can click here to see it. I think about how God had Joel and Jess meet, and marry. They picked just the right time to start having children. God was there all along molding this family for this moment in time. His fingerprints are all over this situation and while it's horribly tragic, it's so inspiring as well.

That by far has to be the most beautiful fingerprint I have ever seen. Such a sweet baby girl who is now resting in the arms of Jesus.

This is just heart-wrenching, Beki. I pray that God will help them pick up their lives and move on. They were entrusted with one of His little angels.

i agree...cora is such a precious little pea...and now that she's with jesus, i know she is no longer in pain but is rejoicing. it's still hard for all the pain that remains here on earth...but, well. jesus is bigger than all of that.

i'm praching sunday on god using the ordinary to do extraordinary things...and using cora's story. seems very appropriate.

I read about Cora a couple of weeks ago through your blog and was not expecting this ending to the story. How beyond-words heartbreaking. But God can bring blessings out of the worst circumstances so I will trust Him to do that with Cora's little life.

Such a beautiful fingerprint!! Cora was such a beautiful baby!!! She's definitely touched my life...made me hug my kiddos extra tight today!!!

I think everyone has a connection to a child whose life ended too abruptly, but whose life also reminded us all of the important things, of love... it's terribly sad but I'm glad you blogged about it. I never would have stumbled on their story otherwise.

I fell into your blog on a search for good photography and I really love your Valentine's session with the kids. I also LOVE the music on your blog!!

Thanks for such a heartfelt post so close to Valentine's Day :)

Cora's story, and her family's strength is an inspiration to us all.

Cora's life is definitely a fingerprint of God.

I am participating in Fingerprint Friday for the first time. Yeah!

Oh, how appropriate to include Cora this week! Such a sad story for Cora's family and all of us who are left behind. Yes, God's fingerprints are all over this one, giving us pause to find peace and hope in trusting Jesus, the Giver of Life Eternal.
