My Life Is In Your Hands

You don't have to worry
And don't you be afraid
Joy comes in the morning
Troubles they don't last always
For there's a friend in Jesus
Who will wipe your tears away
And if your heart is broken
Just lift your hands and say

I know that I can make it
I know that I can stand
No matter what may come my way
My life is in your hands.
Kirk Franklin


Here are some pictures I have taken over the last few years of hands: young and old, strong and tiny, hard and soft, talented and stony. Each one tells a story, but that's for another day...


"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies,
And your right hand will save me."
Psalm 138:7

Hi Ginny, A nice post today as usual. I like your pictures a lot. I have terrible looking hands myself at the moment. I am house painting (interior) so I have scrubbed my paws raw. Have an excellent day!

I like the title of your blog. Those pictures are neat.

Yeah, I messed with the rattlesnakes. I grew up around them and know to keep my distance. I was no closer than 4 feet to the one that was a little riled.

That last one is especially touching ... great verse!

Ginny I love pictures of hands - they tell such a story! They carry so many stories that you can't tell them all - but they are there none the less. They show love to me.
