Fingerprint Friday - The Peak of the Season

I think we've hit the peak in our autumn colors this week. Overall, the colors are not as bright as other years and we've had more rainy days than usual this fall. But we've had some beautiful sunny days this week and I enjoyed these colorful Fingerprints of God at my workplace. I am trying to really notice and appreciate every last spot of color because sadly, they will all be gone soon.

Fingerprint Friday - Autumn Sky

It was a beautiful day yesterday with God's fingerprints all over the sky. When I got to work around 8 a.m., the sun was just coming up behind the trees, with haze across the mountains.



On my way home I stopped to get the mail at our little country post office. Across the road, there's a church with a graveyard. I was struck by the beautiful clouds and one burnt orange tree. So peaceful.

Fingerprint Friday - A rare Autumn day

We've had a lot of rain lately which makes the rare gorgeous sunny days even more appreciated. Most of our leaves are not very colorful this year, but I found this incredible tree last Friday near our natural foods store.



I took this photo standing under the tree looking up. Such pretty leaves.

Fingerprint Friday - A little autumn red

Because we've had so much rain all summer, local experts predict we won't have much color this fall ..... so I get very excited when I find any pretty leaves and feel like they are extra special.



Here's the only bit of bright red leaves I've seen so far on our property. Such a pretty fingerprint!

Fingerprint Friday - Believing even when it's tough


Sometimes it's hard to see God's Fingerprints, and you just have to believe that they are there.

I've had an exhausting week at work - busy with special events and monthly projects, all heaped up together and needing lots of juggling to get them all finished on time. Plus one of my favorite people left our company on Wednesday. He found another job (which will be a move up for him, so that's good), turned in a letter of resignation with the offer to work a 30 day notice, and was asked to leave immediately for reasons I am not privy to. I am extremely sad. So this is the time to trust God for what I cannot understand... give thanks even when I don't feel like it... and believe that all is ok in God's eyes.

Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18


Thank You, Lord, for holding all things in Your hands. I trust You with what I cannot understand and I believe that all is well in Your kingdom.
