Hi!! everyone!! GOD is Good all the time. Not sometimes, Not a few times. ((All)) the time. Today I wanted to talk about hugs. I do believe many of you may have notice that Sister Betty jo gives out hugs. I have read: Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God. There are blessings that comes with hugs. Today I’m going to share my own blessings about them. It is Jesus Christ Will for me to do so today. As a child I was raised in a home that we didn’t get a lot of hugs unless my dad was home. My mother believe that as long as she was working and having a roof over our heads and food in the fridge was enough to let us know that we were being loved. As a child I would get my hugs from my dad who was a military man. Who fought for this country. He was not at home as much as I would have wanted him too be. But as a child one could not understand why dad wasn’t at home as we as children would have loved for him to be. We as children dare to ask Questions, nor talk back. Because they were the Adults and we were the children. 🙂
I can recall my dad had no problem in hugging. I can never forget that. I truly do believe that it had became a habit for me. His arms were so warm, and loving. I was called daddy’s little girl. 🙂 I can recall him calling me his little princess. My mother it was hard for her to hug. I do believe that she came from a family that didn’t hug. So I been hugging folks since I was a child, teen, and as a adult. For me personally a hugging is comforting, affectionate, warm, and caring. I remember when I was working caring for Elders. I would give them hugs, with a smile. And they loved it!! You don’t really have to say anything. Many of them started to hug back. I do believe it became a habit for them. Where they would be looking for a hug, and to give hugs back. What does that tell you? I do believe there are a lot of children, as well as adults that are hurting within. They not asking for a lot, I do believe they are saying (I need a hug).
Of course there are some people that aren’t affectionate, and there are some that are. Let us not hold it against them. I truly believe it can be teachable. I believe Jesus Christ had given and received a whole lot of hugs in His time. Because He was, and is a God with affection. I said that because I recall reading about Him being affectionate. John 11:35 Jesus wept. He had heard about the passing of Lazarus. Whom He loved dearly. You can read about the death of Lazarus in John 11.
Jesus Christ did not have a cold heart. He didn’t have non evil in Him. He was a shepherd with a purpose. All that he had gone through for us. He was Hated by people, lied on, called names. He was spit on, laughed at etc. Still He had love with compassion to do what He was called to do for His Heavenly Father, and for each of us. He had suffered for us. His Father had given us His Son. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. There is so much more I can share. Hopefully I will share at another time, if it be Gods Will to do so. I’m so blessed to be a blessing to share this. I will continue sharing the Love of Jesus Christ as long as it be His Will. I’m so every Thankful and Grateful the Hugs He gives me everyday. I take non of His hugs for granted. There is someone that needs a ((Hug))!! 🙂
” It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassion’s fail not. They are new every morning, great is they faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 \0/\0/ ((Hugs)) 🙂
