THE FINGERPRINTS OF GOD
The stars are God's fingerprints. The sun is a mere smidgen of his radiance. The moon is to remind us that he doesn't sleep at night. The vastness of space proclaims the infinity of his wisdom, while the sand pebble indicates his thoroughness with the puniest details.

On walls, on furniture
On doorknobs, dishes, books.

Whatever our hands touch - we leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture, on doorknobs, dishes, books,
As we touch we leave our identity.
Oh please where ever I go today, help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion, of understanding and love;

LOVE IN THE HOME
If I live in a house of spotless beauty with everything in its place, but have not love, I am a housekeeper--not a homemaker.
If I have time for waxing, polishing, and decorative achievements, but have not love, my children learn cleanliness--not godliness.
