Fingerprint Friday

I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know its 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?

Nature & Kids
(okay one little kid and one big kid Hehehe!)
We built our house 4 years ago and are just getting our lawn in this year. It is amazing to watch God's creation work. It started out like this:
(Front Yard View)
We had 5 loads of this beautiful black dirt of God's creation hauled in.
(5 loads + 20 yards each=Lots of work-It took almost the entire month of June to spread)
Black dirt was all spread and packed down (June 29, 2009)
Watering and more watering. Never fails, I always get wet when I move the sprinklers. Scott makes it look so so easy. (July 10, 2009) God has answered my prayers in the last week or so and has sent rain and lots of it.
Scott and Matthew cleaning out the bird bath/pond. Matthew loves being outside so we are glad that we got the lawn in. Even though he still gets plenty dirty from the black dirt where not all the grass seed has taken, he loves to be out there. (July 21, 2009-It had been mowed for the first time a couple days before this picture below had been taken)
Matthew then discovered the rocks! I love how he is studying that rock. Each rock in the bird bath is unique just like each and every one of us. God made us just how he wanted us to be.

As I sit and watch Matthew explore and be curious about everything around him I am often catching myself looking at things from a new perspective and really appreciating and enjoying the simple things in life=God's masterpiece. God's fingerprints are everywhere! Do you see God's fingerprints around you? To see other Fingerprint Fridays or to join in go to Pampering Beki's Blog.

Love your post. So many babies in this FF! We have done the same thing;been building on our house 3 yrs now and hopefully will be in by Thanksgiving. We put black dirt, planted grass and it was beautiful for a while, then hubby cut it, no rain, and it died. BUT, it's coming back!
