Fingerprint Friday - Wispy Travelers

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 it's true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God

Where do you see God's fingerprints? In nature? kids? animals? They are all around us!

My fingerprints this week were quite a surprise and very magical. Last weekend we were outside enjoying the beautiful cooler fall weather, when suddenly, it looked like it was snowing!

Hundreds of the white, wispy dandelion seeds (technically called "achenes" or sometimes "dandelion clocks," according to Wikipedia) came floating through the air all around us. I didn't have my camera at that moment, but later found some that had landed on a bush in our woods, and while stuck to the bush, were blowing in the wind.

i can see fingerprints in my nephew. it amazes me how children learn by our examples and yet how we learn spiritually from others about God or from reading our bibles and at church. sometimes kids just learn and we wonder how...well God does that to us too with nature...etc.

My kids always say it looks like it's snowing when those huge white poufs come floating through the air!
