Today's song/Hands - Jewel



If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be we're all OK
And not to worry because worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these

I won't be made useless
Won't be made idle with despair
Gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know
They're not yours, they are my own
They're not yours, they are my own
And we are never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes
Did not steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it was not ever after

We will fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing

My hands are small I know
They're not yours, they are my own
They're not yours, they are my own
We are never broken

'Cause in the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own

My hands are small I know
They're not yours, they are my own
They are not yours, they are my own
And we are never broken
We are never broken

'Cause we are God's eyes
We are God's hands
God's mind
We are God's eyes
We are God's hands
We are God's heart
We are, we are

  2. I have a book of her poetry. I was so surprised to read what she wrote. So much I could identify with even though I am old enough to be her ... grandmother. ha... Love the song. I also really like your header picture.

    1. She really is quite wonderful, and a bit of an 'old soul' I think.

    1. I like the hopeful spirit. And those words 'only kindness matters' are the ones I try to live by.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
