Hands and feet

Clasping Hands

“My hands never feel empty because you always hold them with care and love”  Unknown

Why do we hold hands?

Holding hand can signify many things.

There is love, there is friendship and it also signifies strong bond and unity.

“When you hold my hand I’m reminded that I’m not alone in this world, that somebody loves me, and that I have a best friend.” Darlene Schacht

Do modern couples sticking to their wedding vows?

Wife & Husband- Can’t they be best friends for life?

OK.And what about the sculpture of two hands clasping in the above photograph?

This is an impressive sculpture of two hands clasping, which stands 13 feet tall. Made of weathering steel.

Married couples are supposed to take a photograph between these giant hands.

Do you wish to know more about this sculpture?

Read on my friend.

Any idea of Runaway Weddings?

One Scottish border town by the name of, Gretna Green was famous for ‘Runaway Weddings’.

In 1754, Lord Hardwicke enacted a marriage act in England, which said couples can’t marry without parental consent until the age of 21, whereas in neighbouring Scotland, couples could legally wed, just with two witnesses, irrespective of the age.

Since love conquers all, many young couples across England fled to Scotland and the first town at the Scottish border was Gretna Green which is jokingly called ‘elopement capital’ and now a tourist attraction.

‘Handfasting’ became more popular, meaning ‘engaged to be married’

 

Tired Feet

My feet may be tired….but my soul is resting ‘The Rosa Park Story’

Do our feet teach us any lesson?

“Live life like a pair of walking feet

The foot, that is forward has no pride and the foot behind has no shame. Because they both know their situation will change” unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
