Fingerprints Are Everywhere
Kids say the darnedest thing and our Jack is no exception.
After church and preschool, he always tells us comical things [he doesn't realize they are comical].

It reminds me to breathe in the cooler autumn air as deeply as I can. To relish the last days of green shade from our trees before the colors start changing to brilliant hues and the leaves start dropping. I am reminded to really see others and not focus on myself so much. I'm thankful that I can look up and see God's fingerprints, especially on the harder days.
