Her hands.....

Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatever your hand finds to do,
do it with all your might.

Going to my Mamaw's this week has brought back such sweet memories of her.  I also read something yesterday that reminded me that somebody is ALWAYS watching and although I make so many mistakes and have many "issues", I really want my life to serve as a witness for my precious Lord and Savior.  

I found this post from February 24, 2014 and wanted to share it again with y'all.

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

Breathing in Grace,



  1. Thank you so much! A touching photo, touching words!

  2. Oh how I understand what your saying. Beautiful my, friend....thank you for keeping up the sunflowers, they sure make me smile. Have a lovely Saturday.

  3. Such a sweet post. My mother's hands look her your Mawmaw's. They are so soft and fragile. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. My mother passed away 3 weeks ago and I had the honor of holding her hand for several hours, while she passed. I love this post. <3

  5. Thanks to all of you for taking the time to leave me a comment. Little Penpen, I'm so sorry for your loss. I just can't imagine the grief you're feeling. Prayers for you.
