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? Click here to join.

It's been a long week.  A lot going on, a lot of emotions.  I got to share wonderful news with a friend, I have worried about Josie having trouble with friends in school again.  I have painted my house.  I have brought out my summer shoes.  We celebrated Easter... the four of us.  It was, as always, beautiful.  But so bittersweet.
I took pictures of little ladies in Easter dresses after church...  Wishing that the bench was fuller...
We went to Kansas and met our new little niece who is just beautiful... once again I took more pictures and there was an empty space...
Because Miss Marie is in Heaven and Easter marked her fourth baptismal anniversary.  Marie was baptised on Easter when the lilies covered the church.  When Christ rose, when the promise that was made in the beginning was fulfilled.  And now she celebrates Easter in Heaven which must be amazing... but I sort of miss her.
