Why God made hugs

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
An older gentleman who regularly attends our Saturday morning Mass and is always ready to give out free hugs gave me a bookmark with this delightful poem by Jill Wolf.

Everyone was meant to share
God all-abiding love and care;
He saw that we would need to know
A way to let these feelings show.

So God made hugs--a special sign,
And symbol of His love divine,
A circle of our open arms
To hold in love and keep out harm.

One simple hug can do its part
To warm and cheer another's heart.
A hug's a bit of heaven above
That signifies His perfect love.

I remember that guy! First time I went to a Saturday service he gave me one, one of each that is. A bookmark and a hug!
