Beautiful picture...

I sincerely hope this is genuine and not done by someone who's crafty with computer graphics. I got it in an e-mail this morning.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of not-so-good news, but the image is not real. Here's a link to the snopes article: http://www.snopes.com/photos/natural/godhands.asp

However, if you really love the picture and see beauty in it, I strongly (I actually can't stress this enough), strongly recommend not looking at what actually inspired it.

Thanks for the 4-1-1 (info), Annissa. I was afraid of that actually being the case. You know, it just bugs the heck out of me when people manipulate others who are in vulnerable situations and come up with stuff like this. It's also sad that in this day-and-age of computers and so much of today's world relying on them that we can't necessarily trust what comes across on it anymore. I guess it's like what they said about newspapers and magazines - "Don't believe everything you read in print."

Although, it is a nice sentiment to think that God was watching over everyone.
