In God's hands

Take a moment sometime and look at the hands of someone you love. Really look at them. Look at your father's hands. Or your sister's. Or your wife's. Or a best friend's.

You'll see so much more than you might have expected. Hands tell wonderful stories. You'll see hands that picked you up when you tumbled off your first bicycle. That helped you tie your shoes. That baked cookies and picked flowers to put in your room. That caressed your forehead when you were ill. That pitched you a baseball and peeled an orange just right. That pointed out the evening star, and a butterfly's cocoon, and a flock of geese high overhead in the blue sky. That held your own hand when you walked along a beach on a summer's afternoon.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
