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.

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 MckLinky 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 tend to be a very selfish and stubborn person.
I want what I want, when I want it. That's not too much to ask, right?
I get frustrated when things don't go "my" way.
And for me, taking pictures of jewelry is usually a nightmare.
I only have one good window that get's a lot of sun and that is for a limited time of day.
But instead of getting frustrated at The Baby for driving his truck all over my jewelry, I stopped and realized what a blessing it is.

What a wonderful thing to have toys all over the house!
And really, will it kill me to wait for another time to take jewelry pictures? I think not.

Happy Fingerprint Friday!

You are so right. I can't tell you how I miss toys being here..We get so excited when grandchildren visit. I even put a tent up in the living room once. In fact, I just found that tent upstairs and will use it again when they visit.

Sounds like a frustrating moment and thanks for the reminder to realize what's most important! Happy Fingerprint Friday ~*~

Oh gosh, I remember trying to find that PERFECT lighting for hairbow pics and often getting frustrating when lil fingers or toes would end up in the pic AFTER all the hassle!


You are right though, pretty soon those lil things will be BIG things and we will miss everybit of it.

i think we all feel like that sometimes don't be to hard on yourself!
speaking (or writing) as one who doesn't have kids and therefor toys i do find that one of the cool things about visiting friends who do have kids is the toys. Sometimes i get into trouble for not tidying up!!!!

Good for you for taking a breath and remembering what's important - I don't do that enough, but I'm learning :)

And what a blessing that he has 10 fingers to hold that truck! :) Can you take pictures of your jewelry outside? I love the idea of shade and wee bit of light...sultry!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I totally get where you are coming from and have to remind myself that I should be thankful for the clutter.

That is definitely a "thankful" moment!

I always find myself apologizing to people if they stop by and find toys around--I mean all over--the house. Something my mother-in-law once said helps me. She said, "Well, you live here, don't you?" Yes. Yes, I do. And so do my kids.

How right you are cutie...
it's the little things that make us sit back and appreciate.

What a good reminder =) And, I agree - I LOVE a home with toys all over the place - it looks like love lives there =) My daughter (many years ago) and my grandchildren (now) leave finger prints all over my heart!
