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
Great hug for a frantic mom in Florida when her 22 month old daughter got separated from her when a boat they were in overturned. It took an hour for rescuers to find the toddler, safe under the capsized boat where she was able to breathe in an air pocket until help came.
I had to add my hug to this list . Recently I adopted a puppy from a rescue and was sitting on my porch with him enjoying the warm evening when he suddenly darted off my lap and went tearing across the street and across a field after whatever he must have decided needed chasing. It was dark and I’m disabled and was terrified. I prayed for God’s protection over him and started out walking and calling. It was difficult to see but as I approached a streetlight a block away, I saw a little girl coming toward me with my puppy in her arms. She caught him on the run and was bringing him back to me . “I know where he lives ‘ cause I saw you playing with him the other day when I rode my bike past your house” she said. God bless her heart. Something really bad could have happened and some would call it lucky that I got him back safely . I know better. That was a hug from above for sure and I am so thankful.
This may not seem like much to most readers but it was a huge hug for me. My hair is unruly and grows fast and it took me years to find a stylist who could tame and manage it. Then one day she was gone and no one would tell me how to find her or call her with my number. Others at that shop simply didn’t have her talent so I went to another location of the same chain. Before I went in I prayed for God to connect me with someone who knows what they are doing. When I walked in, there she was! Thank You Lord for that awesome personal hug! KAT
Message from Sally in Fort Wayne . …thank you Sally for contributing….. “I recently lost my best friend and confident in a tragic car accident. I was very distraught and depressed and when I came across your site I prayed that I might find some comfort in a hug from God too. That very night I dreamed of my friend sitting on a picnic table in a field of beautiful wildflowers which she loved and she smiled at me! I woke up with a wonderful warm feeling of peace. People can analyze that to mean anything they want but I know that was a hug from above!”
Carol N. from Ann Arbor MI writes : “I accidently came across this site and found myself inspired and eager to share. One day about a month ago I took my dog for a walk and came across a keyring . It had 2 keys on it and the ring had an unusual insignia on it like a crest of some sort. I put an ad the paper indicating where I found them and 2 days after the ad appeared the paper called me to inform me there was a response and gave me the number of the respondent . I called it and what a “hug” I received when the owner of the keys turned out to be my own cousin that I hadn’t seen for years! He said he lost the keys while jogging . When he came to get them we had a wonderful catch up visit and promised to keep in touch. I love getting surprise little “hugs” like that ! “
