Hands Reaching Out

The elegance of a swimmer's crawl,
     sinewy arms arching forward,
          cupped hands pulling backward,
               gliding through the water;
Nothing like God's hands reaching out,
     spreading out into our midst,
          the ones we have waited for,
               saving us for the ever after.
Life is more than splashing water,
     living is being saved by it.

Isaiah 25:11-12
1 Peter 3:20
