The Hug

Today I travel home. Home to my husband and my children. Home to Fur Ball. Back to my country house, and friends that I miss. This trip has been a mix of laughter, buckets of tears, deep emotion, and surface conversations. It has been good. God, in His mercy has gently pushed me along His path lighting the Way each day. Sometimes there is so much pain mixed right in with the joy, I find that I have to just sit still and ask God to wash over me and help me sort through all the emotion.
Last evening, as I stood to say goodbye to someone that has deeply influenced my life, I hugged him. The impact on my heart, and on his at that moment was great. I felt a mix of emotion, love, grief, relief, joy, compassion, and happiness.
Jesus brings me to these amazing places when I pray for truth and joy. Sometimes joy is hidden in pain, and truth is something I have to dig for or wait for God to reveal to me. He does it in loving ways, and sometimes in shocking ways, sometimes through joy, other times through pain. Sometimes in a hug.
Jesus, Say That Again to me, You have wrapped me in Your hug all day long and I am grateful. Thank you for walking with me on this journey.
