Those Hands

Those hands

Have held me

.

From conception

To birth

.

They have fed me

Cleansed me

.

Warmed me

Protected me

.

Opened

For my freedom

.

And welcomed

Me home.

.

from a sequence inspired by Henri Nouwen’s book about Rembrandt’s painting of Jesus’ parable of The Prodigal Son

By Infinity and Grace

We struggle

Without a structure

.

Our freedom

Lost in chaos

.

Not knowing

How to ascend

.

Above

Our earthly ways

.

Until God’s breath

Lovingly descends

.

And changes us

So gradually

.

By infinity

And grace.
