Fingerprint Friday - Finding God in the Gloom

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!

Thank you to Pampering Beki for hosting this each week! Everyone is welcome to join. To see how to join, as well as find links to other Fingerprint Friday posts, visit Pampering Beki's blog.

It's a gloomy rainy day here but I'm reminded that God is still with us, even in the not-so-sunny days of our lives ... most likely when we need Him the most.

Here is the same tree that I took a photo of last week, with more red leaves now.

And some other shots around our yard. While I was out this morning, a couple of leaves came swirling through the air from way up high and landed right at my feet!

Ha ha, as I was writing the above, the sun came out and shone through the window, poking me in the eye as if to say "Peek-a-boo!", so I ran out and took this picture of our woods. It's still raining lightly, mind you, but there's the sun ... just like when God shines through our difficult days.

Beautiful photos and a delightful observation! Have you ever noticed how much more brilliant colours are on a gloomy day? :-)
