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. 

 

 

 

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.

Your Pets In Heaven

The Bible  is somewhat  silent  on the subject of animal immortality  and this may be  because man, in his arrogance, might feel if there’s  an afterlife  for an animal there’s  nothing  he  needs to do to be saved himself.  I  struggled with this  since I  was a small child  and prayed through tears many times that God would  let me be with my beloved pets in eternity. The first  verse I  was inspired by was Romans  8:22-23. “…the whole creation  has been groaning . ..”  I   was impressed that meant not just humans but all created living beings. The more I  prayed  the more confidence  I felt that this  is true.  Since then, I feel God has led me  to  many more verses and publications that support  this hope .

Puppy  Hug

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.

Megan hug

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!
