HUGS!

You can’t wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug.  ~Author Unknown

 

 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
~ James 4:10
 
A hug far better than ermine or mink
     enfolding our joy
     wrapping our grief
     engulfing our deep betrayal
     celebrating a success
     affirming a risk
     a greeting so sincere
     a child taking a running leap before he lands in your arms to gift    
           you
     being a blanket for the tears that are sure 
      an expression that comes in all sizes, fits many occasions,
A hug is good medicine, 
      a trigger of relief
      a parting gift,
      a greeting long awaited
      a sorrow shared.
A hug is one of the most precious gifts you can give.
 
Today, wrap somebody in that gift.
 
Lord, thank you for the gift of a hug and all the times you have shone through the ones I have been gifted with.  Help me to give and receive that precious gift with your joy.
Because of Him,
Linda
