Fingerprint Friday was started by Beki, at The Rusted Chain. It was inspired by the song by Steven Curtis Chapman that contains the line…”when I look at you, I can see the fingerprints of God.” To participate and/or visit all of the blogs that do, go to the Fingerprint Friday Post on Beki’s blog and follow the instructions.
I named these first two photos “Fire in the Oaks” because of the flaming orange of the small trees sitting among majestic old oaks, covered in Spanish moss. These were taken on Jekyll Island last December. Warm days linger long on the island and it always strange seeing this brilliant orange and the green of the oaks scattered about, while all of the historic “cottages” are dressed in Christmas finery.

I chose these for Fingerprint Friday because I think they illustrate the variety of God’s creation: the delicate little trees in their brilliant, orange glory; the mighty, old oaks with their still green leaves and gray moss; the ornamental cabbages with spring like flowers and green lush grass at Villa Marianne– all living in harmony in winter, on a sandy, little island off the Georgia coast!
I shout praises to God for the glory of his creation! Hope you have a great day and wonderful weekend.
