31 Days of 5 Minute Free Writes 04: "Embrace"

I Thessalonians 5:26 - Greet all the followers of Jesus there with a holy embrace. (The Message)

Embraces, hugs; there's nothing like them. 

My family wasn't much on hugging until the grandbabies came and Auntie started hugging and kissing all the children.  Now I tell them that the day they become too old to hug and kiss is the day I write them out of my will.  :)

Psychologically speaking, hugs and touch make for a healthy psyche.  I miss it.  Part of the darkness I deal with comes from having to go for days, even weeks, without the physical touch of another human being.  In touch there is connection.  In heartfelt embraces, there is healing.
