Fingerprint Friday - Such a beautiful time of year!


So many fingerprints around me this time of year. These glorious flowers are blooming on the grounds at work this week. I love going for walks, and my heart just wants to sing and praise God.......


The splendor of a King,
clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice,
all the earth rejoice
He wraps himself in light,
and darkness tries to hide
it trembles at his voice,
trembles at his voice

How great is our God,
sing with me
How great is our God,
and all will see
How great
How great is our God

from How Great is Our God - composed/sung by Chris Tomlin

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.

Fingerprint Friday - Glorious Sky


We've been blessed with perfect sunny days this week. These clouds caught my eye on the way home from work the other evening.

This scene is so beautiful, so full of His glory, and makes me think of one of our songs from church...

"My Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.
Shine your light and let the whole world see,
We're singing for the glory of the risen King...Jesus"
- From "Mighty To Save" by Hillsong Australia

Fingerprint Friday - Thankful for Family!

I am so thankful for such a great Mother's Day weekend! I got to see 3 grandkids on Friday and 3 on Sunday. See posts below for more pictures of my favorite Fingerprints.


Thank you, Lord, for such beautiful creations who give me great joy.

Psalm 139:13-14
You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

It was a Happy Mother's Day!



My son Scott, Wendy and their three came up from Charlotte yesterday to take Mike and me out to lunch. (Look at the beautiful yellow petunias they gave me!) And I got to see my other three grandchildren on Friday (see post below). What a great weekend!

A day in Knoxville

Stewart and Jeff


We met my son, daughter-in-law and three grandkids from Ohio in Knoxville today. My 13-year-old grandson was in a National Olympics Competition at the Knoxville Convention Center, and it was amazing to watch some of the best 12 and 13 year old boy gymnasts in the country. He was in 6 different events throughout the afternoon - pummel (his favorite), rings, high bar, floor routine, vault and parallel bars. Then we walked a few blocks to Market Square Mall - a really cool outdoor mall (the street is blocked off to vehicles) with all kinds of shops and restaurants, and street musicians. It was fun to sit outside eating salads, pizza and burritos from Tomato Head restaurant, listen to live music, and watch all the people walking around and kids playing in the fountain. We also enjoyed the sculptures in Krutch Park near the mall.
