Fingerprint Friday - { surprise! }

My girls told me they had a surprise for me - close your eyes and come with us! I did, and was seated at the table & then was allowed to open my eyes to see this:

What could be better than a very carefully made drawing by a 5 year old, and a special drink as my surprise? I don't need much to remind me that God put some special little people in my life - the evidence is right here.

(And who knew water with red food coloring in it could be so delicious? Yep, that's seriously what it was!)

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? Here's how to join in:

1. Blog with your interpretation of God's fingerprints.

2. Be sure to link so others can find the entire list of participants! Go over to PamperingBeki's blog to add your link to the list of participants.

How precious - so thoughtful!

I love the food coloring water - sounds like a perfect drink while I'm on my diet! Can you send some right over? LOL

That is SO precious! I love it.

That is too funny and beautiful! You have captured some of the joy of motherhood!

I had to laugh remembering a recent 'surprise' from my kids similar to yours. But they brought me a rootbeer float...For breakfast! Red water is definitely better for the!
