If you could hold a hand....

When we were young, we usually get strength from a hand that held us. Usually a guardian, our parents or anybody bigger than us. Now that we're grown ups, we have to hold and brace ourselves. When we are afraid, in pain, or nervous we usually clasp our hands together. There are times though wherein we would love or need to hold a hand. If you were to choose, whose hand are you going to choose? Why?

When i was im high school, all my five girl friends and i used to hold hands together and pray when one of us is going through a really rough time. We had a beautiful friendship. Until now we still keep in touch, all six of us. During any trying moments of my single life, at least three of them are always there. THere was even a time when one of us experienced a broken engagement (she dated her fiance for 10 years) and we all took a leave from work and hanged around together in a hotel for two nights. We held hanand prayed like we always used to. Now all of us are married and lead different lives, and our only connection is the phone or the internet. I always felt strong when all six of us are together. I would love to hold hands with my girlfriends again and pray.

Although not physically possible, it is the hand of God that I want and need to hold me in times of despair. However in the physical sense, my sweetie's hand always seemed to make me feel safe because he would grab hold of my hand and it's as if his hand would say, "don't worry, I won't let you go". Take care and God Bless!

It wouldn't hurt to hold the same hand whom you used to hold when you were young. In fact, you'll feel even better... the same way they'll feel too. Given my situation right now, the only person I can physically touch is my husband. Family and close friends are far from us. And I'm sure it'll help a lot.

The hand you hold is a quiet time together with your memories and with God. God is the best, thats where you're going to eventually anyway. Memories are also a great hand to hold and you can do it with the music you love, or photos, or old letters, or old books, anything that makes you feel wanted.
