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?
To participate in Fingerprint Friday. Just click on the title of my post and it will take you to PamperingBeki's blog. Follow the instructions!



Sunflowers.
Gentle giants of the flower world.
You just have to love them.
Who can look at a sunflower and not smile.
Giant heads so large and heavy that their tall, thin stalks should fall over.
But they stand up straight and strong anyway.
All of those heavy seeds make their heads tip over.
They look like they're praying.
I think they are.

Bumblebees.
Gentle giants of the bee world.
You just have to love them.
Working so hard (busy as a bee) pollinating flowers.
They shouldn't be able to fly.
Their fat little bodies too heavy for their delicate little wings.
But they fly anyway.
They sound like they're singing praises for the pollen.
I think they are.

His fingerprint all over them...keeping sunflowers standing tall and bumblebees buzzing through the air...

God, the gentle giant of fathers.



Sorry the photo isn't better. I was shooting into the sun and had to play with it on Photoshop to even get this...but wanted to share it anyway.
