For several days my washer has been in freak mode and doing crazy thing. Dreading the upcoming major expense, I prayed about that washer last night. Today I thought I’d give it one more chance and it worked perfectly through several loads . 😄. Many would speculate about that but I have no doubt where that “hug” came from and I am so grateful.
I woke up this morning to the cheerful songs of the birds . The sky was a cloudless, brilliant blue and a background for tall and lush green trees. A gentle breeze kissed my cheeks as I watched a couple squirrels frolicking in my yard. Thank You , God, for these hugs and good morning.
When mom walks me in the park, sometimes she thanks God for what she calls “hugs”…..like beautiful weather, blue skies and singing birds. She sometimes even thanks Him for me! I guess I should thank him for my hugs too. I can’t say the words but my Creator knows my heart and how grateful I am that He hooked me up with my very loved earthly master who loves and cares for me! Praise to our Heavenly Father from all His creatures great and small! 💖
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.
There are several scripture quotes supporting the “what goes around comes around” theory.
“You reap what you sow…”
“Give and it will be given to you…”
“Whatever measure you use it will be measured back to you…”
“By the standard you judge others you will be judged . …”
Did you ever wonder if one of God’s mighty archangels might be named “Karma” ??
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???

“I get hugs from above every day.
I sometimes feel them in my heart as they say.
I am a sinner undeserving of this.
I am trying to change it and not just dismiss.
Though I know in my heart, and without any doubt,
that while I’m still earthbound
I’ll keep getting hugs and feel safe ‘n’ sound and,
those hugs keep coming from all around
because GOD loves me and he gave His Son
His name is Jesus, and my only way out.”
Got another Hug from Above today
Have gotten way to many to ever repay
Hugs just coming, more each day
That’s all God’s love, and to love
is what He has to say
