Our hands are amazing. We use them in so many different ways.
They are a gift from God – but sometimes.. perhaps… we take them for granted…
Let’s give thanks for being able to use our hands.
To hold our spouse by the hand… from beginning to end.
To touch the hands of our babies.
The joy of a baby’s hand as she sleeps on her Abuela’s shoulder.
To use our hands in tandem with a friend.
We gathered on Saturday – men, women & children –
to decorate & clean our church for Thanksgiving.
It was a beautiful experience – just a little church family in Garner North Carolina.
To worship using the fruits of the field & give thanks.
A trip to the farmer’s market to gather fresh produce.
And then using our hands to shine those apples,
remove the outer layers of the onions,
and brush the dirt from the potatoes,
before placing all the bounty of the earth on the altar.
To look forward – giving thanks for developing hands.
Our son, daughter-in-love, and expected grand-boy. We are all giving thanks.
Two sets of mother’s hands – expecting to see their babies’ hands soon…
To share the joys of our hands with our children.
And pass on the delight of work and worship to our children.
And be still for a moment – to give thanks.
What are you doing with your family — or church family — to give thanks?
How will you be using your hands to give thanks?
