His Hands

As I work on a new Eucharist bead from the mess of yesterday's disaster, I am keeping in mind the prayer of St. Terese of Avila, which I saw on Julie Cragon's blog:

Christ has no body but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours. 

My hands are yours, Dear Jesus, let me do your will as I make a new Eucharistic Bead for many people to pray and remember you in the Eucharist. 

I keep thinking about how God's only hands are our hands, which also reminds me of this amazing song by Brandon Heath.  I could listen to it over and over again! Great lyrics and awesome musician!

Lord, let me be your hands as I do your work today.

Mom, the only time I really listen to music is in the car...but if anyone is wondering what would be a good gift for me in the future (August 2, hint, hint!) it's been years since I've had a new CD, and would love one!
