THE MIRACLE DRUG....... HUGGING
Hugging is healthy.  It helps the body's immune system, it cures depression, it reduces stress, it has no unpleasant side effects, it is nothing less than a miracle drug.
Hugging is all natural, it is organic, naturally sweet, no pesticides, no preservatives, no artificial ingredients plus 100% wholesome.  Hugging is practically perfect.  There are no movable parts, no batteries to go flat, no periodic check-ups, low energy consumption, high energy yield, inflation proof, non-fattening, no monthly payments, no insurance requirements, theft proof, non-breakable, non polluting and, of course, fully returnable.

We heard last Sunday morning how important it is for parents to hug their children - And kids, it is the best Mum's day present you can give.
How about others in the church family?  Don't forget those other "Mums, Auntys, Grannys".  They would love a hug too!  God calls us a family - so let's be a good one.

God bless ya!
Darryl & Kaye.
