What would it had been like, Jesus, If I were hugged when I was a boy? warm enclosed safe in the present in a loving presence knowing someone out there would be there. Can I, Jesus, hug that boy? Can I be in the present, a loving presence? My boy-spirit is hugged -- Always and truly. You, Jesus, embrace me, warming, enclosing, securing, in this present, a loving presence. someone in there that is here. Amen.
