Fingerprint Friday

This is a first for me. I am participating in PamperingBeki's "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?
This week I am seeing God's fingerprints in nature's blooms. This is our first spring in this house, so all the blooms and blossoms are somewhat of a surprise. There is a Jane Magnolia tree in the yard. I blogged a little about it here.
I know nothing about this kind of tree. In July I wondered why the blooms were turning brown and dying. Now I am thinking that maybe that just wasn't the season for the tree to bloom and thrive. {There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven....Ecclesiastes 3:1}
Now it is spring and the tree is covered in buds. They are beginning to open and it is beautiful. I look at it each day with hope that it will be more beautiful than the day before. {"But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you." Psalm 39:7}

I am also seeing the fingerprints of God in these daffodils. They are just popping up here and there.
What a beautiful promise of spring!
If you would like to see more "fingerprints" please make sure to visit PamperingBeki. You will be blessed!

{For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, So the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations. Isaiah 61:10}

If this is your first spring in SW AR then you need to check out the Jonquil festival at Old Washington...I haven't ever been but have heard great things about it.

Also, Garvin Gardens in HS is great when the tulips are blooming. Great photo op!!! Some of the best pics I have of my kids are there with my camera taken by me...that's saying alot about the place!

Love these pics....and welcoming spring too!
