Fingerprint Friday - Another Sunset

Fingerprint Friday was started by Beki, at The Rusted Chain. It was inspired by the song by Steven Curtis Chapman that contains the line..."when I look at you, I can see the fingerprints of God." To participate or to visit all of the blogs that participate, go to the Fingerprint Friday post on Beki's blog and follow the instructions.

I was browsing through my photos looking for something for Fingerprint Friday and found some shots of a beautiful sunset.
We see a lot of lovely sunsets at my house but sometimes the trees can get in the way.
Fortunately, we live about 8 minutes from our church. It sits on top of a small mountain and the sunsets are often extraordinarily beautiful from there. 
These were taken in June 2008 right after I got my digital SLR camera.

I use sunsets a lot for my Fingerprint Friday posts.

I can always see God's fingerprint in a sunset. 

Sometimes it's simply the awesome sight of a huge ball of fire hovering over the horizon...


Sometimes, it's His cloud formations...these look like angel's wings...or giant white birds...



Sometimes, it's the magnificent colors that He displays...


Sometimes, it's the serenity and peacefulness I feel...knowing that God is in charge of the universe...


and the hope I find in Him...
the assurance that the sun will come up tomorrow...

the faith that if it doesn't, it's still okay...
because it's His universe and I'm His child.

Sometimes, it's all of that and more. 

Hope you have a lovely Fingerpirnt Friday.

  1. Your photos are beautiful and awesome! The most amazing thing to me about sunsets is that each one, each day, is different. I love knowing that God's creativity is boundless and that He created me with that gift inside me.

  2. SO beautiful! I, too, see God's Fingerprints in sunsets. You're exactly right. God is in control and we are so lucky that He gives us the chance to see such beauty! Just imagine what Heaven will look like because that sunset is only PART of what He can do! woohoo!

  4. I see Him in sunsets too! Sunsets are so precious to me, besides that they are made by God, I saw many sunsets with my mom in the three months before she passed away. God is good.

  6. Thank you for sharing. It's so good to be reminded to look for him, for he is everywhere. Outside we are entrenched in over a foot of snow and each and every snowflake has his fingerprints.

  7. I love these:) My six year old Josie asks me all the time where Heaven is located... why, just behind the sunset of course, because there is no night in Zion only here on earth... These are beautiful, I love the angel wings!
