Pierced hand

I cannot form a mental image of Jesus in any setting in which he has closed hands.


GENEROUS   baskets of food left after the multitude was fed.

KIND  reaching out as he says, “Arise and walk.”

WELCOMING    inviting “Come unto Me, all that labor and I will give you rest.”

HEALING  gently touching as he reaches to the leper

FRIENDLY   greetings to the wedding party in Cana

RECEIVING  bring the little children to me…

TALKING   you are worth many sparrows

DYING  pierced and bleeding.

Prayer:  Jesus, Let all that I do be done with an open hand.


Blogging Friends, I will be gone for a few days.  Plan to see you here about Thursday, July 2.  Going to the home of my son, Carl.  I want to spend a bit of special time with great-grands on his side of the family.  Will be my first extended time with taking this oxygen stuff with me.  Well, I’ll see how it goes.  I’ll live with or without it.  😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
