Finger Print Friday ~ Late Night Cafe' Patio Delight

Fingerprint Friday

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 true
You'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? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? Here's how to join in.

1. Blog with your interpretation of God's fingerprints. Be sure to link back to Beki over at The Rusted Chain so others can find the entire list of participants!
2. After you've posted your blog, sign the Linky below. Have fun exploring the other links as well!
Please only sign in if you're participating. Hopefully this will make us look at things through fresh eyes throughout the week!

After the lovely win on the garage situation it was such a grand feeling!
I actually felt like doing something with my patio once again.
My neighbor Pat, was busy making her little patio look extremely inviting and relaxing.
So I just had to join in.
She was so gracious to help me as well.
She brought the table and two chairs up to my patio to use along with the yellow cloth.
Then we went to Lowe's and got some flowers to put in my pots.
I had been wanting flowers all Summer long.
I just missed not being able to enjoy the patio.
Now I can!
I had so much fun fixing up the patio too.
I think hubby really enjoys it as well.
Though he would never say so.
It felt good after dealing with so many rules of you cannot do this or that here at the complex.
I just felt like it was time to take back control of my home and my life.
And that meant my patio area as well.
So to work I went on it to do so.
I have wanted to enjoy and fix up my patio all Summer.
I finally did!
Hubby is a bit concerned;
He thought I might be pushing the envelope.
I really didn't care!
I was past the point of caring what the complex thought.
I was taking my stand and wasn't backing down!
I really just wanted to fix my little space in the world; relax and enjoy like I had in the past.
Which meant doing some of the no no's that we had been told we couldn't do.
Oh Well!
I moved the bird feeders back to the front window area. I re-hang some of my chimes and a planter.
It just gave it a wonderful beautiful feel.
I was so excited to have the patio the way I had wanted it all Summer.
Actually better than I dreamed of.
Hubby BBQ for Pat, and I that evening.
He said honey this looks like a little french cafe'.
It as well looked like a extra added room that extended into Pat's patio area as well.
It is a very lovely and inviting area.
{Everyone that comes through just wants to sit and stay a while.}
We had so much fun that evening.
We had a late night dinner by candle light.
Laughed, and chatted, just enjoyed each others company.
Had a wonderful dinner under the moon and stars, set to candle light.
As we listened to some George Strait country music and danced  under the moon on the side walk between the two patio's.
What fun! 
It was a delightful and wonderful Summer evening.
A great way to celebrate our win and our lovely cafe' patio's we had designed to make us feel good.
It has added a touch of class to our neighborhood.


Acts 2:42

And they continued steadfastly in the apsotles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
