which hands?

Remember the hand? (see the badge on the left). I have decided that I need to take paper with me wherever I go to trace people's hands in order to amass a collection. I have received a mere 7 so far, six of them from two families (and thanks for those!). It's not too late if you want to send me yours! If you don't have my address please email me and I will send it to you.

In the meantime, I am developing the theme of the quilt on which I plan to place these hands. There are several passages of scripture that will be embroidered somewhere on the quilt, vying for contention, and I'd appreciate your input to help me determine which one to use. Please leave a note in the comments if you have a preference. They are:

1) The heavens declare the glory of the God, the skies proclaim the works of his hands. (Psalm 19:1)

2) Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy. (Psalm 98:8)

3) May my prayer be set before you like incense, may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. (Psalm 141:2)

4) You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands (Isaiah 55:12)

(all translations NIV).

I'm off to an all day Pampered Chef training program. May your day be filled with joy!

Well, considering this quilt will be to give someone going through illness peace and comfort, I like #4 the best!

I forgot too! Dr. M & I will trace our hands on paper tomorrow (we're watching Dr. Who right now). Can you send me your address?
