Those 10 wiggly things at the end of your forearms. Yes those digits and the palms they are attached to! Go ahead,Take your one hand in the other right now and squeeze, if you have someone else with you, take their hand in yours. Feel the feelings? Remember the first time you pet a little puppy?, or maybe it was a tiny kitten. Or the first time you held your newborn child? Hard to describe the feelings created by the sensations from those devices called hands isn't it. For me and my hands, I can say that those memories are warm and fuzzies. Hard to turn down the little child with outstretched hands and arms begging to be picked up and held by you and I. Can you think of a few words or phrases relating to the hands? Words like a bird in the hand, overhand, underhand, underhanded, uplifted hands, open hands, closed hand makes a fist, hand in the cookie jar, praying hands. Maybe there is a reason it would take you and I hours to look up all the references to the hands in the bible. Phrases like: Reach out your hand, the mighty hand of the Lord, don't lay a hand on her, stretch out your hand, a sign on your hand, hand them over, lay hands on the sick, rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to; Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. My hand will sustain him In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. Let them know that it is your hand, that you, O LORD, have done it. The Lord is at your right hand; You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. with a mighty hand and outstretched arm; His love endures forever. Now when it comes to the creation of the Adams and Eves there is a different story at hand: The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth. Of what use is money in the hand of a fool, since he has no desire to get wisdom? If you have played the fool and exalted yourself, or if you have planned evil, clap your hand over your mouth! Speaking of women at Christmas: restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand. The eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" The foot cannot say because I am not a hand I am not a part of the body. How important are your hands? Try buttoning your shirt, tying your shoes, brushing your hair, picking up your child, holding your beloveds hands without them. I am sure glad that Gods hands will never see the ravages of arthritis. We can depend on his sure hands to be healthy and strong forever. I believe he expects us to take care of this temple we call a body and do all that we know to prevent arthritis of these 2 hands.
