Open Fingers

Blessings fall from heaven’s storehouse,

light on objects far below;

only hands with open fingers

catch the ones that grace bestows.

Doesn’t this look like an open palm waiting to catch something wonderful?

  1. Yes, it does, Melody! What a lovely way to remind us to walk with open palms so that we may be blessed, and then bless others with this same grace.

    The theme of hands–whether open, grasping, tight-fisted, strong/limp–always provides for a wealth of writing. Thanks for the reminder, Melody–maybe I’ll work on a poem, in between sneezing and groaning (when you’re alone, you’re entitled to whine as loudly as you want!).

    I love this one!! It makes me think of all the blessings God would like to bestow on us, if we but would receive them with open hands. Beautiful.

    Yes, it does look like an open palm. You have made me take a second look at the trees and flowers which have to be open and “palmed” to receive the blessings of rain and sun which make them flourish. I think I might walk around all day with my palms open and my arms wide and see if blessings light upon me. Will someone be moved to do my washing and cook and scrub? πŸ˜€
