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 trueYou'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?
Where do you see them?
Hopefully this will make us look at things through fresh eyes throughout the week.
Today I dedicate my "Fingerprints of God" segment to the PEOPLE of Haiti-their country is broken, their hearts are broken, some families are now broken...
Living in South Florida has made us accustom to our close neighbors of Haiti across the Atlantic and in our own backyard. My job with the Dept. of Education/No Child Left Behind program has allowed me to work closely with the Haitian population locally with personal employees and recipients of the government program. Brett's job at the resort has allowed him to employ several loyal men of many years who are like family at work and the resort employs over a thousand Haitians in Hospitality/Convention Services, and other areas. These 5 men that we are honored to call friends have lost direct relatives in this disaster in Haiti. We often wonder why things like this happen and to the poorest of countries. We will never know the answers, only God.
God's Word says, " But You, O Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts my head high." Psalm 3:3
This is a country of a large amount of Believers, but as many who are there are that many who are not. Please keep them in prayer to have faith, streghth, and endurance of whatever comes in their days ahead. And our world should be praised for their efforts in helping rebuilding.
