These hands

Today I looked at my hands and saw an old lady. I was so shocked I picked up the phone and called my daughter and told her “My hands look so old “. I should comment that I don’t feel old and I’ve been told I don’t look my age. 58 is really not that old .. no for real it’s not. These hands are well used.

If you know me even a little you should know that even in this God spoke to me and reminded me that these hands may look old but these are the hands that I have used to navigate through life.
These are the hands my mother held as the doctor presented me to her after I was born. These are the hands that I used to pull myself up to stand as a toddler. These are the same hands I used to catch myself when I fell. These are the same hands I used to learn to ride a bike, the same hands I had to use to catch myself when I fell skating, biking, hiking and some times just walking. These are the same hands I used to pick up my daughter, the hands I used to rub her back and comfort her. These are the same hands I use hug my husband and show affection. I have used these hands to wash, cook, clean and praise. These hands have been on many continents and in many kitchens and they have been used for good and evil, these are my hands.

But today Lord, I lift my hands in total
Praise to you. I lift my hands in joy and supplication to your will and to your way. I lift my hands and I praise your name on high because with your hand, you have lifted me.

“Don’t worry—I am with you. Don’t be afraid—I am your God. I will make you strong and help you. I will support you with my right hand that brings victory.”
