Fingerprint Friday

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 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?

"Lord, make me the parent You want me to be and teach me how to pray and truly intercede for the life of this child. Lord, You said in Your Word, "Whatever things you ask in pray, believing, you will receive" (Matthew 21:22). Thank you, Lord, for the precious gift of this child."
This prayer comes for the book titled For This Child I Prayed (written by Stormie Omartian and Illustrations by Susan Rios).
I would also want to add to the prayer: Thank you, Lord, for this child's wonderful birthparents. Thank you for bringing them into our lives and our family!
I purchased this book last July while on a trip to a family reunion in Nebraska not knowing that we were going to be choosen to be parents two weeks later.
What a wonderful year it has been! Matthew is growing WAY to fast.
Only a month before his 1st birthday!
He has been the happiest baby and we have been the happiest family!
PS See his little bruise on his forehead? Those happened last week while we were camping. Oh the burdens of exploring and learning to walk. Mommy kisses make everything better!
