Fingerprint Friday - Rose of Sharon

My Fingerprints of God today are these gorgeous Rose of Sharon bushes, in full bloom this week in front of the administration building where I work. Simply breathtaking.

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!

OMG, I have these bushes on the side of my house and never knew what they were called. Love the flowers on them. They grow like mad each year and have to cut them back a good 3 feet or so after the bloom each year, or they fall over themselves. But they are sooooo pretty.

I've heard of Rose of Sharon but I don't think I've ever seen one. Thanks for sharing!
