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
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,
