On August 30, 1993 at 7:15pm, a 6 lb 5 ½ oz baby boy was delivered into my hands he was named Brandin. While in our hands he learned how to walk and talk, laugh and play. Our hands taught him to read and write. Our hands provided comfort and guidance and love. But on May 14, 2005 Brandin was baptized and place back into God’s hands and in his hands, he was taught to love his neighbors as himself. In his hands, he found grace and mercy. He experienced the unconditional love of his heavenly father. He found forgiveness and acceptance no matter how far he strayed. He thrived like never before because it truly does matter whose hands you are in because . . .
A basketball in my hands is worth about $19. A basketball in Labron James’ hands is worth about $20 million. It depends on whose hands it’s in.
A baseball in my hands is worth about $6. A baseball in Derek Jeter’s hands is worth $15 million. It depends on whose hands it’s in.
A tennis racket is useless in my hands. A tennis racket in Serena Williams’ hands is a Wimbledon Championship. It depends on whose hands it’s in.
A rod in my hands will keep away a wild animal. A rod in Moses’ hands will part the mighty sea. It depends on whose hands it’s in.
A slingshot in my hands is a kid’s toy. A slingshot in David’s hand is a mighty weapon. It depends on whose hands it’s in.
Two fish and five loaves of bread in my hands is a couple of fish sandwiches. Two fish and five loaves of bread in God’s hands will feed thousands. It depends on whose hands it’s in.
Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse. Nails in Jesus Christ’s hands will produce salvation for the entire world. It depends on whose hands it’s in.
God’s hands have always been there supporting ours, but now he is resting in God’s hands alone.
We will always love you son,
Mom and Dad
