HUGS IN HOMES
Some counselors recommend two hugs a day, just for maintenance! Consider these words written by Dean Walley concerning hugs:
It's wondrous what a hug can do.
A hug can cheer you when you're blue.
A hug can say, "I love you so" or "I hate to see you go."
A hug is "Welcome back again" and "Great to see you!
Where have you been?"
A hug can soothe a child's pain and bring a rainbow after rain.
The hug, there's just no doubt about it—we scarce could survive without it!
A hug delights and charms; it must be why God gave us arms.
Hugs are great for fathers and mothers, sweet for sisters, swell for brothers. And chances are your favorite aunts love them more than potted plants.
Kittens crave them, puppies love them; heads of state are not above them.
A hug can break the language barrier and make your travel so much merrier.
No need to fret about your store of them.
The more you give, the more there is of them.
So stretch those arms without delay and give someone a hug today!
The human touch is a powerful medicine overlooked.
There are some crucial times for families to think about...
When you get up in the morning;
When you part for the day;
When you come together again in the evening; and
When you retire for the night.
"And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his sister-'s son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed him, and brought him to his house." —Genesis 29:13a
