Fingerprint Friday - God's beauty in the woods

We live on 13 acres of beautiful land in the mountains of Western North Carolina ... bought by my husband's parents about 30 years ago. I have the joy and privilege of being able to go for walks in the woods often, and I love everything in bloom this time of year. Here's a sampling of God's beauty we get to see this time of year.

Little critters are also a lot of fun to watch. Here is Liz the Lizard who hangs out on the wall of our house sometimes. My son got this great shot of her the other day.

Happy 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 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!

What a variety! It is always so fun to explore right in the back yard and see God's fingerprints everywhere.
