Fingerprints

It’s no secret I love the Civil Wars.

I could go on and on about their music and the still-unfolding story behind it. I’ll save that for another time.

It has been said that I see the fingerprints of God where none were intended. Guilty as charged!

“Dust To Dust”
Joy Williams & John Paul White

You’ve held your head up
You’ve fought the fight
You bear the scars
You’ve done your time
Listen to me
You’ve been lonely, too long

Let me in the walls
You’ve built around
We can light a match
And burn them down
Let me hold your hand
And dance ’round and ’round the flames
In front of us
Dust to dust

Can you not hear the echoes of the Father…and the Spirit whispering through these words?

I have been lonely…and so have you. I have the dust of bricks and mortar on my hands from the walls I build.

God wants to hold my hand as we watch my kingdom burn.

There are ashen fingerprints on my hands…and the warmth from the flames bring comfort to my lonely soul.

Father, thank you for the gift of this day, and for speaking to me…
