I sat in front of the grate with my toes resting upon the chilly bricks. Soon enough the heat from the hearth would spread. Watching the flames grow I longed for contentment. Looking at the bible lying next to me I could feel peace come again. Memories of a thousand hugs flooded my senses. A childhood friend came to my thoughts. How I longed to give her every one of those hugs in this minute of her need. My Father heard this desire and in His goodness dispatched the angels to deliver each hug personally.
