Sacred Touch

November 8, 2006

Many parents, when faced with a child’s scrape or cut, say “Let me kiss it and make it better.” Scrapes kissed, tummies and backs rubbed, fevered brows soothed, fears hugged away – children seem to know well the power of touch.

As adults our wounds may be too serious to treat with touch alone, but that doesn’t discount its power. The embrace of a loved one, the hug of a friend – all of these things help us to know we are not alone, that God, through the hands of others, touches our lives.


Note: Thank you for all your well wishes & hugs. Your sacred touchΒ is the main reasonΒ why I am feeling much better today. THANKS & HUGS!
