Heart Hugs

A heart hug is when you purposefully hug with your heart pressed against your friends heart. What an amazing concept! While having coffee with a friend yesterday another friend came up to give her a hug and positioned herself for a heart hug. I had never heard of this before but loved it.

Life can throw us stressful situations and hugs from others are renewing to our spirit and our being. How much better to reach out to someone heart to heart. We can get so caught up in the activity of life that we regretfully pass on truly connecting to others. Each of us knows in our hearts that connections and relationships are what life is all about. Yet we miss opportunities that God provides to reach out and embrace. From this moment on I am going to be purposeful in giving and receiving heart hugs from others. I can't wait to experience how God will bless my life and ease my tensions with this small adjustment.

1 Corinthians 16-14 Do everything in love.

This simple 4 word command is not so simple to implement. But perhaps heart hugs can help us focus on the love and release the conflict.

In Him,


  1. I love it...heart hugs are wonderful aren't they? and the verse is one my husband and I said at our wedding! Great thoughts today!

  2. Thanks for commenting on my's always so nice to meet someone new:). I've enjoyed reading your's as well. God is in everything, isn't he? And it is SO joyful! Now, you've got me thinking about those heart hugs today. I'm on my way to give my first one:).

  3. I've never heard of this before, but I LOVE IT! I always am bothered by the quick, side hugs that plague most of us. I'm going to start doing this!
