There's a song by Steven Curtis Chapman called "Fingerprints", that goes:
"I can see the fingerprints of God
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of God
And I know it's true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of God."
It was a miracle. The pilot and co-pilot successfully landed a US Airways plane on the Hudson River after losing two engines when running into a flock of birds. The risk of landing a plane safely on water is slim. But they felt is was a better risk than crashing on land. Passengers reported that there were many prayers being said aloud. God was definitely guiding them yesterday. All 150 people made it safely to land, including one mother and infant. You can't question God's Fingerprints after this.
I remember my father telling the story of crouching down in a foxhole in a field in Germany during WWII with a confirmed atheist. As my father fervantly prayed, the non-believer laughed at him. And then the planes overhead began flying lower and began dropping bombs. His fellow-foxhole-sharer began praying, too. "I thought you didn't believe in God", my father said. His companion's reply, "I decided not to take any chances in case there IS a God." Nuff said.

I'm off to my studio on this frigid -12 degree Ohio Friday. Stay warm, happy, and grateful....wherever you are in the world.
