Fingerprint Friday - Blooming!

I feel like the earth is holding its breath. Will it snow again? Is it safe for everything to burst forth in bloom? Even during this week's rainy, overcast days, there are tiny signs of spring - a few brave flowers daring to poke their tiny shoots out of the ground and a few brave bushes daring to open their blossoms on long-barren branches.

I was so excited to see this forsythia in bloom on the grounds at work today. There is hope.

"Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these."  - Matthew 6: 28 - 29


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

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? To find out how to join "Fingerprint Friday" and see links to other posts, visit Beki at The Rusted Chain.

So beautiful..Our bushes won't bloom for awhile yet, even though it has been warm. We have been lucky with weather..every now and then, we get a winter like this..Did I enjoy it. Enjoy the beautiful blooms and weather.
Happy Fingerprint Friday..

Really pretty trees, already starting to look like spring or maybe I should say finally! Always a good sign to see everything start blooming again.
Smile today. :)
