~Open Windows: Fingerprint Friday~


Whenever God closes a door, He opens a window. So many times, we wait and wait for the door to reopen. We stare impatiently at it. We shake angrily at the lock. Why did it close? Why isn’t it opening? We are so focused that we fail to see that right there, nearby, is the wide-open window. Fresh. New. Waiting.


Thank you, God, for the doors that are closed, and the windows that are open. Your Fingerprints are truly everywhere. We just need to open our eyes and our hearts to see them.

Blessings to each of you on this Friday~

These elegantly eloquent words are so timely and beautiful, almost as though meant for me this morning. And that delicately-curtained open window is just lovely. Thank you.

Many, many windows have closed in Melbourne, with towns simply wiped out by the bushfires - and we need all these messages of hope, Carol.
