Of all the parts of the body, to me, hands are the ones with the most meaning and least considered.
If you were asked right now what body part would you least like to lose, what would you choose? Your eyes? Your voice, hearing, a leg? I can pretty much guarantee a hand wasn’t the first thing you thought of.
If you’re blind, you can feel your way or read Braille with your hands. You can feel hot or cold, smooth or rocky. You can see a lot with your hands.
You write, drive, cook, show affection.. all with your hands. You join hands in prayer, in matrimony and business. You shake hands to show sincerity. You wave hello and goodbye. You give a hand up, a hand out, a helping hand. You can have a hands on approach to problems and you can keep your hands off my cake!
You surrender with hands up. You can have too much time on your hands or have a drink in your hand. You can keep one hand in your pocket, you can handle with care, you can even have the whole world in your hands!!!
And right now, keeping the whole world in your hands couldn’t have more significance. Wash your so important, precious, CRITICAL hands and keep them 6 feet away from others. You’ll greatly lesson the amount of goodbyes you’ll wave.
