God’s Hands

From Chicken Soup for the Grandma's Soul

God’s Hands

You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother.

Albert Einstein

Following her granddaughter’s baptism, my friend asked the youngster, “Why don’t you draw me a picture of what happened to you in church?”

Judy drew a large pair of hands with a child standing in the middle of them. Grandma was impressed.

“Oh, did they sing ‘He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands’?”

Judy shook her head seriously. “No, Grandma. That’s a picture of what Daddy said to Mommy. ‘Now that Judy is baptized, God is sure going to have his hands full!’”
