Every day we are blessed countless times. We often overlook the Source of the good things that happen to us and chalk it up to good fortune or “lucky breaks”. I call them hugs from God and began this website in order to share them and have a place where others can share their “hugs”.
Please share your experiences – your own Hugs from God for others to appreciate. Thanks, Kat.

Once I read that in the early days animals who were to be offered for sacrifice may have actually clamored to be the ones chosen. To be given as a sacrifice to their Creator, the Awesome King of heaven, may have been considered a great honor. What a comforting thought. Very likely they knew whatever they encountered on earth that they would eventually reside in paradise as was intended for them in the first place.
It occurred to me that before the fall of mankind , when things were perfect in the Garden of Eden, perhaps animals were intended to be able to converse . After all, when the serpent spoke to Eve, she wasn’t surprised or astounded it could speak. Instead, she listened and considered what it was saying. Perhaps, and hopefully so, animals in eternity will be able to express to us their thoughts and feelings and fill us in on their histories. How awesome that hug would be!
There is so much division and violence and evil in this world. People who used to act intelligent and stable are now acting and speaking like lunatics .
It’s not just politics, altbough that is the most prominent example , but it’s everywhere .
My own thoughts on this……..I now believe that hate is contageous and it spreads like a virus. It’s not even necessary to have any contact with the carriers. Simply reading comments or listening to the news can infect. It seems to numb the brain until all traces of common sense completely disappear . How sad!
I wonder how God feels as He watches the insanity . He loves each and every one of His creation and it must grieve Him intensely .
Do you ever wonder what will happen when He’s had enough???
After cashing my paycheck I went grocery shopping and loaded the bags into my car. When I got home I realized I had left my purse in the shopping cart in the parking lot. Panicked, I hurried back to the store praying my purse would still be there. It wasn’t . I went into the store hoping one of the employees might have brought it in when collecting carts. I inquired at the desk and , praise God, a customer had turned in my purse and the $450 dollars cash I had in it was still there. I consider that a huge hug from my loving heavenly Father .
(Thanks so much for contributing this hug Calista. )
This isn’t actually my hug but I received a personal “hug” after I read about the 10 year old girl who stayed alive 17 hours under many pounds of rubble in the earthquake in Italy. No doubt God was holding her until help came . Just reading that made me feel the warmth of His love . CK
