If eyes are said to be the ‘window to the soul,’ hands must be ‘footprint of our heart.’
Hands are really quite amazing. A baby’s hands are soft and innocent, a child’s hands are inquisitive and covered in experiments, a teenager’s hands are curious and skid-dish at the same time, a mother’s hands are strong and gentle, a father’s hands are hard- working and thoughtfully disciplined, a grandparent’s hands are experienced and wise.
My hands alone have done so much; doing hair and nails, drawing and painting, nurturing and comforting and teaching my babies, playing instruments and cooking. It would seem to me they are a direct extension of our heart and its’ intentions. Watching my husband fix cars, change diapers, comfort his girls and me with the same hands. Remembering my parents’ hands and all they did. It just simply amazes me that with all the humanness we possess and the day to day responsibilities that we do, there still seems to be so much energy and emotion recognized or transferred through our hands.
I know this was a brief message, but it was weighing on my heart to share this. What story do your hands tell of you? Are they being used to serve others or yourself? It’s quite a curious thought, isn’t it?
