Fingerprint Friday - Heart smudges

I been running into the arms of God this week as I spend time in prayer for the people of Haiti, for there I find safety in a world that seems to spin without control or reason. The Haiti earthquake leaves the ground beneath us feeling less than solid.

Words of fellow bloggers have left me breathless, weeping and aching in unison with their pain and frustration.

Janet Oberholtzer writes Pain Hurts

Teri Lynne writes on how her daughter teaches us there is A Time To Dance

Jennifer writes about how We Shake

I thank God for the ways He is able to use us, imperfect as we are, to leave smudged fingerprints on each other's hearts. I believe that when we do so, we are reaching up and touching His heart as well.

Thanks for the recommendations; I'll be popping over to read those. It bothers me that I'm so immersed in my own stuff here at home that I'm not taking the time to fully FEEL for the devastation in Haiti. It's like I have a shield around me that's keeping that stuff from getting in and I DON'T WANT to be shielded!

Many times the events in the world present the opportunity for us to be overwhelmed and depressed, or strengthened and determined to do what we can to help. I'm honored by the number of people who come together in times like these to try to make a difference. Nice fingerprint!

Hi ,
i`m Kelly, i have 22 yrs old from York , England .

We try to make something to help alittle this childrens , just search and look !


Our hearts are for the families from Haiti ,too ! Let`s keep prayers for all the overhelming situation of there .

Often when we face obstacles in our day-to-day life, our hurdles seem very small in comparison to what many others have to face. The Brooklyn Bridge shows us that dreams that seem impossible can be realised with determination and persistence, no matter what the odds are.The pursuit of happiness is a matter of choice…it is a positive attitude we consciously choose to express. It is not a gift that gets delivered to our doorstep each morning, nor does it come through the window. And I am certain that our circumstances are just a small part of what makes us joyful. If we wait for them to get just right, we will never find lasting joy.

The LORD is with us !

-:) Hugs !!!
