Fingerprint Friday - Beautiful Blossoms

Isn't it amazing that God created so many different types of trees, plants, bushes and flowers? These gorgeous trees are called Crepe Myrtle and are in full bloom right now in our area. These beauties are growing by the side of the road near where I live. I am having fun this year learning names of trees and plants that I never knew before! The lady I carpool with knows them all. :)


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 beautiful tree! I wish they would flower all year.

Thanks so for commenting on my blog. Could you imagine wearing 16 yards of material? Summer would be deadly.

it's always good when someone shares their knowledge with you and you feel you've learned something you might not have otherwise known.
