Fingerprint Friday

Steven Curtis Chapman sings:

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

PamperingBeki challenges bloggers each Friday to discover, recognize, see and share God's fingerprints with the rest of the world. See instructions to join in here. Also check the other blogs linked there to see more great Fingerprints!

While hiking a particularly steep trail section on Saturday, I stopped to take a breather. Just a tiny portion of sky was visible because the forest was so dense and the trees so tall.

Just as I looked up, a raptor soared right above me, right in the tiny opening, right when I looked. The miracle of the timing uplifted me and adrenalized me for further climbing.

Then later in the day, after we'd reached the highest lake and just as we were stashing the gear and food wrappers so we could make our way back down, another bird flew overhead. This time, I had a chance to point, focus and shoot. The golden eagle soared right above the very peaks we'd set out to shoot at the beginning of the day.

It was a picture perfect hike! Blessed by God's creation!

  4. what is it about birds whenever i see them i cannot fail to think of Him. Something about their ability to soar so close to Him?

Dusty words lying under carpets,
seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
You can talk to me... (Stevie Nicks)
