I was reminded this week of how God's fingerprints are all over our relationships whether it's between family or friends. God uses each of us and is expecting us to make a difference in each other's lives. We are put in situations where we have the opportunity to act or ignore that "still small voice". We get so busy with our "busy-ness" we often sweep away the thought, "Oh I should call____" , you can fill in the blank. One of the many reasons we were drawn back to Anacortes, after moving away for a time, was because of relationships we have here. Since coming back, we have had so many opportunities to serve, particularly in our church, that we feel this is really where we belong.

I was so blessed yesterday when a friend of mine called me to ask if I would just spend some time with her while she went to get her haircut. It just so happened that I needed a haircut too and since coming back I wasn't able to connect with my old hairdresser. We began to talk about how God prompts us to do things and we often have doubts that anything positive will come of it, and we are surprised when He does something great! Why are we so amazed anyway? The Lord is leaving His fingerprints everywhere, we just need to open our eyes and realize that they can be huge and they can be small. They are there when we have open hearts and eyes to see.

I don't really have a specific photo for this post but I came across this picture of my son with his Grandpa soon after we arrived in Kansas. Just classic... a grandpa showing a "city kid" how to fish! Notice the matching hats?

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? Thank you to Pampering Beki for hosting this each week!

  3. That is so true, we just need to open our hearts and our eyes to see ALL the Fingerprints around us! Sometimes they are so easy to see and other times they are very small and harder to find, but they are always there!
