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. Hopefully this will make us look at things through fresh eyes throughout the week!

I love that my brain is trained to think of Jesus every time I see thorns. To me, thorns are a reminder of what He suffered. And that I really don't have it all that bad, even though I whine a lot.
They're a subtle but strong reminder to keep my head in check.
By His wounds, we are healed!

How awful to imagine those thorns pressed into one's head. We can't begin to imagine the pain He endured, and the price He paid to save us. All I can say is Thank You, Lord.

One year, a friend and I made a crown of thorns for the Good Friday service at our church and set it on the Baptismal font on top of a pretty cloth, up on the altar. During the service which is always in the mid-afternoon, sun beams came through the windows, and rested right on the crown of thorns for quite awhile. Still makes me cry.

Great post girl. The thorns are such a huge representation of Christ's death and resurrection, aren't they? Great job!

Blessings, Angie

Thanks for the great reminder! Even though we think that our life is rough sometimes, I can't even begin to imagine what Jesus went through for us.

Okay, I didn't even see the thorns in the picture until after I read what you had to say. But yeah, those are some nasty thorns. Wouldn't want those on my head...

Love your post. Thorns are so painful and yet they were only a tiny part of the suffering He willingly bore for us. Great reminder...thanks!

Thanks for the reminder today Beki. I didn't even see the thorns until I read your post. It's hard to think about the pain and suffering that our Savior went through for us, but it is necessary to realize the great gift we have been given.

Hi. I really like your post! This is a wonderful idea!! For me, the thorns represent that we all must go through pain before we see the glory.

My thoughts exactly. Each time I cut roses and get cut, I remind myself that is nothing in comparison to what HE has done for us.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful photo and post today.
Blessings today and always,
