Anointed Hands

When given the opportunity to have my hands anointed with oil during Sunday service, my heart and mind exploded with what that actually meant to me. As our pastor created the sign of the cross upon my rough, dry hands, the full weight of the meaning and the possibilities caused my body to tremble ever so slightly. I have always been somewhat embarrassed by my hands. They are my father’s hands, and his mother’s hands. I have short, very thick fingers and wide palms. Not my mother’s feminine, delicate hands, with fingers that fly across piano keys with flair. I am happiest when my hands are covered in winter gloves or mittens. To have attention brought to my hands is uncomfortable for me
