"What deeds of power are being done by His hands!" Mark 6:2.
The Hands that made the world and gave the sun and moon their light
are the tiny Hands of a baby born one cold December night.
The Hands that stilled the wind and tamed the fury of the sea
are the calloused Hands of a carpenter who lived in poverty.
The Hands that held the power to break the binding chains of sin
are the gentle Hands that washed the feet of tired and dusty men.
The Hands that cleansed the leper, healed the blind & raised the dead
are the praying Hands of one who cried, -
"Not My will, but Thy will instead."
The hands that shaped the universe and flung the stars in space
are the nail-pierced Hands of a dying man who suffered in our place.
The Hands of our Creator, Lord and King of Heaven above,
are the Savior's Hands, forever reaching out to each of us with love.

May His Hands touch your heart with healing and your life with many blessings, as they cradle you and yours with His love all the days of 2014!
**I saw this as a Christmas card and though of how this really illuminates what life is all about for me. What deeds of power are being done by HIS hands, in your life this year??
With the snow falling again this evening He is painting the landscape everywhere all in white, so pure. I was out on another SPARK walk tonight, so beautiful and peaceful with thick white snow falling all around me. Sort of like I was living in a snow globe! Although it was nighttime the whiteness He was showering down upon me made the world seem such a brighter place, if only for these moments in time. What a wonder it is to take a walk in newly falling snow - there is nothing quite like it. I wish everyone could enjoy the comfort and peace found there.
So I wish to all who read this blog comfort and peace all through this brand new brightly white filled New Year of 2014. May you come to know the power done by His hand!
