fingerprint friday

steven curtis chapman sings a song that says "i can see the fingerprints of God when i look at you... i can see the fingerprints of God & i know it's true... you're a masterpiece that all creation quietly applauds... and you're covered with the fingerprints of God."

there are fingerprints of God all around... in our everyday life... even in the littlest things. blog about where you see those fingerprints and then let me and pamperingbeki know!

my fingerprints are in those little moments. last saturday it was a beautiful day. dathan and sean were outside playing with the hose... i mean washing my car. it was lunch time and i decided we were going to have a picnic in the front yard.
it was so simple, yet so much fun. enjoying the sun... enjoying each other... laughing at sean... i just kept thinking of that country song "these are the moments i thank God that i'm alive..." it's the simple things, those things we take for granted- those are the things that i think God's fingerprints are all over.

like the silly moments with my oldest son sean
and the sweet (or even bittersweet) moments with our baby nolanit's taking a dancing break in the drivewayand attempting to take a picture of my 3 boys
don't let these little moments pass you by. if you look closely, you will see God's in them too :)

yep, it's those little moments that make the difference in the big picture (and usually the ones that everyone remembers after they become adults). You have done a great job capturing these in pictures! True fingerprints indeed!

Good for you for taking note of those little moments! They pass by quickly and sometimes we're too busy to notice them.
