Fingerprints on Friday

More snow on the way...maybe these words are not what everyone wants to hear, but we all know that winter is here and plans to stay for a while. Snow is one of those fingerprints of God that we can see clearly, but to look at it from a different point of view can be fun and inspirational...the way God intended, I'm sure. Take a look at this burning bush, usually looking quite serious when it has its leaves that turn a beautiful color (looking like it's on fire) before it loses its leaves and looks bare for the winter. This view with the snow poking in the branches is not serious at all, and makes us giggle every time we walk passed. Then there are the many patterns God makes in the snow that is created with the wind, as the snow drifts. Sometimes we see a face, or a butterfly, or even a profile of a dog in the snow patterns, just as you can while looking at an abstract work of art, only the creator really knows what it's all about.
Proverbs 3:5
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him
And He shall direct your paths."


  1. You still have more snow than us! Glad to hear you're finding inspiration! :) Does that mean you're getting creative too?
