Her hands.....


This is a picture Jess took of my Mamaw's hands.
She used to lay on the couch and sleep with her hands on her chest.
She passed away in 2011, just a few months shy of her 100th birthday.
Oh, how I loved that woman and still miss her so much....
but I truly BELIEVE I'll get to see her again one day!!!

her hands had known
and touched and felt
the best and the worst
that life had to offer

they'd held a newborn
they'd kneaded bread
they'd mended sweaters
they'd caressed her man

felt a rose petal
petted a cat
soothed a boo boo
prayed to God

her hands had seen
their share of toil
and despair
triumph and joy
sorrow and love

her hands had
served God


 ~~~"Her Hands" by Michael Traveler~~~


Breathing in Jesus,
