Five Minute Friday: Hands

Over at lisajobaker.com, the fabulous Lisa hosts a weekly blog party called Five Minute Friday.

The rules are simple:

  1. She decides on a one-word writing prompt. This week it is HANDS.
  2. Bloggers everywhere set their timers for five minutes.
  3. Our pens fly….can you hear the frantic scritchety-scratch? 
  4. We publish our five-minute masterpiece & share with the world.



Hands.

The hands that raised me were

soft hands…
callused hands…
stained hands….
tender hands…
wise hands…
speaking hands…
hard hands…
but mostly, loving hands.

The hands I hold now are

soft hands…
pudgy hands…
dirty hands…
sticky hands…
inquisitive hands…
trusting hands…
innocent hands…
but mostly, loving hands.

The Hands that have always held me are

soft Hands…
protecting Hands…
patient Hands…
faithful Hands…
tender Hands…
kind Hands…
peirced Hands…
but always, loving Hands.

His Hands.

    This is beautiful and so evocative. It makes my heart swell with gratitude for those who've loved me, who I've loved, and always . . Him. Thank you!

    Lovely poem of comparison and contrast. I&#39;m amazed that you can write this in five minutes. Thanks for the reminder that we&#39;re in God&#39;s loving hands.<br /><br />I came to your blog via the Essential Friday link-up.

      Hi Constance. I love poems. They come naturally. This one doesn&#39;t rhyme and the rhythm is off. I really wasn&#39;t going for a poem this time. Just jotting down my thoughts! Have a beautiful day!

    This is wonderful. My mind just placed a special person in my life that fit each set of hands and then the last One could only be His Hands.<br />Glad I came by from Still Saturday. <br />Caring through Christ, ~ linda
