Welcome to Hugs From Above

imagejpeg_23.jpg

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.

Someone  Watching Out For Me.

Marie from  Ann  Arbor  shared  this  hug:

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 .

Blessing Received

(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

Gone, but never forgotten

Reilly

Tina R./Toledo, OH —  I had Reilly from the tiniest kitten who needed naps every few minutes  to my HUGE “kitty bunny” with the big thumper feet (I tell you, they literally looked like rabbit feet) that still needed naps every few minutes.

He meant so much to me and was so important to me. I took that for granted though. Reilly had health concerns that snuck up on me super fast. His life was cut way to short. He should have had so many more years to live.  He’s been gone now for about 7 years and I still think about him all the time. I have other fur babies to hold and love, but for those of you who know and love each and every one of your animals, you know that it is not a replacement. I still miss Reilly, I regret that I didn’t get him help when he needed it, and I have guilt that when he took his final breath I was not right by side.

I choose to believe though that he is in heaven right now with Jesus playing with every cat toy, bell, ring, and ball that he could possible hope for.  Jesus is playing with him, and caring for him until the day when I will be able to wrap my arms around him again and feel those huge feet kick up against me……like my bunny. 

 

 

 

Thought  

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!
