These hands are yours, the divine, the creator, my God
They are my instruments on loan for one lifetime
They are powered by the love you have for me
I am standing here, sharing my light with this beautiful human, what a miracle and a gift!
Oh Lord how I am blessed to rise each day knowing I am yours and I have taken up the mantel of lessening the suffering of others as mine was lessened by your grace
I lived so I could be here seated at this treatment table
I lived so I could be here to I can hold this life in my hands
I lived so I could comfort and hold space for this soul before me
This soul who is dear to me and I have so much love for
Oh Lord how I am blessed to feel your love course through me with each beat of my heart
Let this person feel our love united as it spills from my hands
At times I am overwhelmed at the joy I feel as you stand beside me!!
My heart was wrapped in what could only be described as Saran Wrap for oh so many years
Tears are infrequent, but oh do I feel!
My ribs feel like a cage, my teeth grind and my muscles hug tight to my bones
It is almost as if my whole-body cries with joy, sadness and sometimes righteous anger
But, I am grateful for this, any semblance of emotion is welcome indeed
I am the earth, I am soil, I am here to hold space and live my life with joy and abundance!
