There are always loving hands

orchid on my altar

I have created an altar in my bedroom on which I place objects that are sacred to me. Not because the objects themselves are sacred, but because of what they mean to me. One thing I always keep on the altar is a blooming orchid plant to signify beauty, life and the transcendent nature of life. I also have a wooden hand carving that I bought last year. I don’t know why I did, but I was just drawn to it and had to have it (I actually saw a friend with one and dragged her to the store so I could get one too. It just drew me in).

I love this photo that shows two orchid blossoms that died and fell off right into the hand carving. It says to me “Marguerite, there are always loving hands to catch you”.

And now I know why I had to have those hands.

    This sculpture suggests that our hands needs to be held. It reminded me about a reading in Our Daily Bread – November 25 2009 entitled Holding Your Hand. I discovered and felt that God is holding our right hand through our lives. In Psalm 73 v. 23 it is said by the psalmist Asaph. These hands reminded me that we need to be held and guided throughout our lives by God and family members and friends.

    Thank you Simone. Yes, there are always loving hands to hold our hands, to lift us up, to cradle us gently

    Much love and blessings to you

  3. The Bible says that “underneath are the everlasting arms” these being God’s everlasting arms. He will never allow you to fall unless you reject Him.

    I also have an altar at home…for my son who passed away tragically in 2012. Mine is created in honor and memory of him. I never pass my altar without saying something to him and while glancing at his picture and his possessions that lay there.

    Dear Diane

    How lovely that Ricardo is so visibly present in your memories. Bless you. And know that my loving hands, into which the orchids so gently fell, are the loving hands of Spirit, in which Ricardo rests.

    Bless you my friend

    Marguerite
