The Maker’s Hand

Today I watched a man who was probably taking his last steps as an upright man.  As he tried to figure out what he was trying to do, I wondered this…  just what was he thinking and processing in his mind?

There is such fatigue and confusion and inability to figure things out for people at the end of their life.  The in and out of disorientation and reality must be SO hard to experience.

This is why I believe it is so important to give grace and mercy one more time.  Just think, before someone dies what it must feel like as they receive kindness from a human’s hand.  Because the next touch they will get is their Maker’s Hand and that will blow them away forever!
