My husband was a very affectionate man….to me, to our Grandbaby even to our animals. He was a very touchy, tender person. Something that makes his going home even harder. One thing he did every night when we went to bed was rub my hand. He would even do it in his sleep. The first night I laid in bed after he passed I stretched out my hand across the bed to his side and just wept. Something amazing started to happen soon after that and every night since…his dog started licking my hand till I fall asleep. Again I truly believe animals were created for our comfort and joy.
In Matthew it says Jesus just touched a womans hand and she was healed. (But when Jesus touched her hand, the fever left her. Matthew 8:15)
Thank you Lord because I know you have brought much healing to my soul through the touch of my beloved husband…and even though I long for those touches and feel like I can’t live without them …you know me best. So now your touch is the one I long for... to carry me through this next season in life. ~ Your beloved Anna
