The Carpenter’s Hands

Here’s something a little different from me! This is a poem I wrote in the early 90’s!! I came across a collection of poetry I put together back then that I had written while I was recovering from many things, mainly my divorce in 1990. The Carpenter I am referring to is Jesus.

They reach out to me every day,
Holding me straight so I won’t sway
To the right or to the left –
The Carpenter’s hands on me.

They touch the very core of my heart,
Chiseling out the most painful part,
So I can be made new inside –
The Carpenter’s hands, gentle by my side.

They rest lightly on my shoulders today,
Keeping me where I need to stay,
Hugging me close to Himself again –
The Carpenter’s hands on me.

He takes my hands to hold in His,
And I feel the very nail prints
Where His blood poured out His love for me –
The Carpenter’s hands on Calvary.

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. A beautiful, touching poem Patsy. I do find that I write poetry when I’m going through ‘stuff’ and it really helps. It’s the rawness of it and the tenderness of yours that really moved me.
