Hug of The Day...Very 1st Hug to Clara Kish on HubPages

For the first Hug of HubLove I bring you someone I just recently found and was amazed at. She has been here at Hub Pages for four years, she lives with her son in Mt Perry, Ohio and has a best buddy dog, Tawny, to keep her company. We have someone here that puts their spare time to good use teaching anyone who will listen. God bless her every effort!


We love you Clara!

This is Clara; such a lovely and loving lady who puts God above all. I was so impressed with her here at hubpages making hubs! All to the glory of God. I cannot express all the emotions she brings out in me with her love!

Number one hug

She writes so beautifully from the heart; unashamedly, for the Lord. She has been writing since 1945! She, I think you will find, is just one of those people you want to know. I can imagine sitting and talking to this lady and enjoying her company and conversation so much and I think a hug would not be out of the question! So I present this hug of the day to…Clara Kish!

Whether you read anymore of this writing or not please click on one of Clara's links below and stop by and give Clara a hub hug, will you? It would be such a nice thing to do. Just say hi and God bless everyone who does! She knows nothing about this little hug! (Well, she does now!) Be her surprise today! God loves Clara and so do we! clarakish

I miss you Clara; hope you are well.

How the World Has Changed

Evil rules

Clara speaks here of what America has become today, how different she is than when our country was built. At that time we taught children to pray and were not ashamed of God’s name unlike today’ to worship and thank him for all things. She tells us here that is us who have changed for God never will.

God visits

Does God come to cheer us up on sad days when we least expect it? Clara thinks so in this beautiful poem about a tingle and a jingle. I would love to believe so and why not? He is our father and He has more love than can be imagined.

We shall never die.
We shall never die. | Source

Don't be a Sunday Christian

Clara I think in this writing tells us she is no different from any of us, but she has lived and she has learned. She will only tell you what the bible says, what God says. It may seem harsh at times but better to be up front and truthful when it comes to a soul or giving God's word.

Easy way to Heaven

No cost to man...the cost to Jesus was His life. The shedding of His blood.
No cost to man...the cost to Jesus was His life. The shedding of His blood. | Source

If a rich man could buy his way into Heaven what would it be like? Would anyone want to go? Find out the simple way to have a home in Heaven, where no money or riches are necessary. Eye has not seen nor ear heard the things God has prepared for us. Shouldn't we all be waiting like children on Christmas morning? I try to imagine every now and then but I just smile at my Lord for I want the surprise knowing it is better than anything I could think up!

Is it end times?

What are the signs? Do you know them?
What are the signs? Do you know them? | Source

Days are short

Oh my; how many of us have wished our life could speak for us? This reminds me of my “Love Lifted Me” poem where I speak of meeting people who you just wish you could be. Their light does shine, and Clara says here that is how we all should be and reminds us that time is running out.

Idle hands/devil's workshop

Source

Idle hands are the devil's workshop

The title speaks for itself. Idle hands are the devils workshop, no? How many children end up in so much trouble because of all the free time they have? Surely feeding their hearts with good things could make a difference. She what Clara with plenty of experience has got to say.

Knock and the door will open

...but not for the lighthouse; where would this ship be?
...but not for the lighthouse; where would this ship be? | Source

Thank God for the lighthouse

How God does change us once we get to know Him. What we use to call fun no longer looks good to us. We begin to see through God's eye the evil of our ways and it is just not fun to us anymore. Once we are Gods the Holy Spirit teaches us right from wrong. We cannot count Jesus blood He shed on the cross for nothing.

Love thy neighbor

Love thy neighbor as thyself.
Love thy neighbor as thyself. | Source

He ain't heavy he's my brother

Having true friends and one who will never let you down, and always be there is so wonderful. Clara has little comments after her beautiful and/or informative poetry and in this we get a little glimpse of Clara emailing a friend of sixty years! I hope Clara comes up for an interview on Hp so we can find out even more about her life, don't you?

Crossing over

Source

Walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death

Be ready!


It is appointed unto man once to die and we all face that valley of the shadow of death and although we would like to all know that day and hour we do not. It is the way God set things up to be and accepted it we must! I so love this writing and Clara’s ending sentence says it all!

Dreams

Are they warnings? Maybe reminders?
Are they warnings? Maybe reminders? | Source

I had a dream

I think Clara just got a little menace in her for this one to make a very good point but she reminds me here of the everlasting body we will get in eternity, wherever we go. Life is eternal and who would want eternal that is not good?

We live in a messed up world

The word clearly explains what is happening today and should be no surprise to any Christian.

The mess the world is in

We can all see the mess the world is in today, everywhere on earth and there is no denying it. Clara gives you the straight shot truth, like it or lump it, it is simple and your choice to make.


Do unto others

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. | Source

If tomorrow never comes

We all will do better tomorrow won’t we? Don’t we all have that plan and tell ourselves that? How many of us put off until tomorrow what we know we should do today? Do we tell someone we will help them with something but never get around to it? This ties in to the video I have here but now Clara says it in poetry.

Remember to tell them you love them!

I love Hugs and one or two or more a day lifts the spirits and soothes the soul. I loved the video, so true, so true. I wonder how many of us go through life unloved and never get hugged? I wonder how many leave this place never having said goodbye. Keep telling everybody that counts in our life, how much we LOVE THEM every day, along with a BIG hug. They will get the message and respond. Beautiful hub Jackie, my appreciated and felt the hug for sure in this hub.

Hi my sweet friend, Jackie,

Well, now this is how you change a big flub of mine in an email into a hub with a big loving hug!!!

I dearly love Clara with all of my heart. She is such a living angel right here on this earth!!! You have chosen one of the most wonderful poets here on HP with a pure heart of love like no other for all, and who writes from her lovely heart!!!

Yes, dearest Clara, I am always blessed when I read your beautiful poetry, for they are filled with pure truth. When truth goes out, it never comes back void! Thank you for being such a good and faithful servant.

Please accept a big hug from me to you too! Hugs all around here. What joy Jackie has shared here in sharing of you and your gifts to bless all who read.

Hugs and love to you precious heart, Clara!

God bless you both, Jackie and Clara.

Dear Jackie and Faith, I don't think I have ever been more surprised or grateful than I was today when I saw the new followers and comments and fan mail . I can't remember anyone doing so many nice things for me ,and the pictures are beautiful. I loved all of the nice comments, I was beginning to wonder just how much good I was doing on here What they want me to do , I am unable and too old to take what time I may have left to put God's poems out . God gives me the poems and He knows who needs them .I am sure He will get them to those people in His way.Thank you ,Jackie , and Faith and to all that have written to me , I appreciate them all . Love you ,Clara

I have many more here yet to put on. Thank you so much for sending the email , I can get them to my family and friends , maybe it will do some good there ,too,More hugs to you . Love, Clara

Hello Faith,I have just been reading all of these comments and it is still hard to believe that so many people think these poems are good ,I never really thought that I was writing anything that special but when you are writing for God He blesses it . I thank Him everyday for all that He has done for us. When I heard that my poems were not featured I thought they would not accept them and pass them on so I was looking for some place else that I could sent them to if need be . I have written for God quite a few years now and I never wrote then to get paid for doing it , it was just for God ,that is all that I can say. I will write for Him as long as I live ,if I am able to. God knows my heart and what I can do. I could never thank you and Jackie enough . Hugs to both of you .Love ,Clara

KNOWING HER HAS BEEN A PLEASURE AND A BLESSING . WE HAVE HAD A GREAT FRIENDSHIP WITH NEVER A HARSH WORD. SHE IS ONE OF THE BEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER KNOWN. I SEND MY HUGS AND HEARTFELT LOVE, TESSIE

Hello Dearest Clara,

Oh, you are so precious to He and me, please know that and thank you for leaving such a lovely comment here to me. Oh, yes, so true, Clara, when one writes for God, He will bless it in more ways than we could ever dream possible! He is sweet like that you know. So, great, so great, is His faithfulness.

I know without a doubt that you delight yourself in the Lord, so He will and has given you the desires of your heart, which is evident . . . to glorify Him through your writing.

I can only pray and place my faith and trust in Him to allow me to do such in my lifetime for as long as you have been His good and faithful servant, dearest Clara.

I am glad you received a blessing from this "Hug" here, and we can only pray that many who need a gentle, sweet and loving "Hug" will be as surprised and filled with joy as you and Sparklea are here in these "Hugs" presented.

May God continue to bless you and keep you. In His Love Always,

Faith Reaper

Jackie, voted up, useful and awesome. I have already read 2 of Clara's hubs and sent comments, and I am also going to follow her!

You and Faith are wonderful ANGELS...what a terrific idea. I was in total SHOCK when I spotted in the hub page notifications "A Hug For Sparklea". I was in tears, so extremely overwhelmed that I got on my knees last night at bedtime and just humbled myself before God, and thanked him for the true blue friends I have met on Hub Pages. All I could write to Faith Reaper in an email is that I was speechless.

I am still recovering ...in a good way. God bless both you and Faith for the hugs you are spreading, and the encouragement you are giving to we who are passionate about writing.

Your hug to Clara is so tremendous, not to mention the pictures. THANK YOU BOTH FROM MY HEART, I am just filled with gratitude, and very happy to discover Clara. Thanks to you! Blessings, Sparklea :)

Thanks Audrey, what a lovely tradition! Well of course I am use to that with family but a state, well, that says much for them. Hugs back to you, many of them.

Thank you so much Vincent, hugs really are a blessing sometimes and we just do not know what they may mean to someone who never or seldom gets one. You are a good friend to stop by and comment on Clara's hug.

Hello Jackie, You are making me 10 years older than I am I was 84 in Feb., I am not sure I could make it another 10 years, not sure I would want to the way the world is now. I want to thank you and Faith for all that you are doing to help us out,I am sure that we all appreciates it . Love you both, Clara

No Clara I mean your score! I would not have told your age if I had known it, gee I am woman too! We don't talk about age. lol

Hello Jackie, I don't care who knows how old I am , I am fortunate that God has given me this many years, now with these poems I am trying to give back to Him , I never cared who knew my age but with weight ,that was a different thing. LOL Love ,Clara

Jackie Lynnley 3 years ago from The Beautiful South Author

HaHa Clara, I use to be that way, now I don't want anyone knowing either! You sure are doing well for your age and looking great I can tell you that. I don't see anyone else 84 around here writing up a storm. That right there is a witness to God and I am sure He blesses you for it.

This is a beautiful tribute to a fellow Hubber...I'll definitely be checking out Clara Kish! What a nice mistake...hug instead of hub...we all need support in our warm little community. Thanks for this nice idea! Voted up.

Jackie Lynnley 3 years ago from The Beautiful South Author

Well hello vespa, I just had your latest hub pop up but had to prepare supper, but I will get to you right away. Thank you on this, I have done three already and look forward to the next. We will only do one a week to not tire out our followers and let them have ample time to check out each newbie. I know you will love Clara.


Rayne123 3 years ago

Hi I was/am not able to get online for a bit but am on hub myself

I have commented on faiths hubs quite a bit and just maybe it wasn't a typo maybe it was a. sign.

Anyway I have read all/or most of clareas poems and have become friends with her. She is very sweet and if I lived near her I would go help her out.

Her poems are beautiful and admirable .

I love this idea and send everyone a special hug

God bless

Laurie

Hi Rayne,

So glad you are now able to get back on HP. Since you have been away for a good while, Jackie came up with this clever idea after I made a typo in an email (as Jackie states here) referring to "Hug of the Day" as opposed to "Hub of the Day" lol, and then these "Hugs" were born. We surely have been having a delightful time in highlighting those sweet hubbers who we receive such a blessing from reading their writes and who may not be known to many of the thousands of other writers on HubPages. Sometimes in our exploring, we, too, find new hubbers we really love, so it has been a true blessing all around, at least to both Jackie and I, to share in spreading a little bit of "HubLove" or rather "HugLove" all around HP Town, as I love to say : )

I pray all has been well with you, and so glad you are now able to get back on HP.

God bless you and please, when you have a chance, check out the other "Hugs" we have written or "given out" since you have been away, and we do hope you will receive a blessing from reading, as we have from writing all of the "Hugs" no doubt.

In His Love, Faith Reaper

Hello Jackie, I guess I did not do a very good job making it clear what my trouble is. When I hit the button to start a hub ,it comes on for me to put the title on then I do everything until I come to continue, when I hit it everything wipes off that I have written .I even tried to put a different one on and it did the same thing, I have deleted , compressed , cleaned the disk. tried to increase the memory, even tried to use the onscreen keyboard , I thought maybe it was the mouse or regular keyboard but that didn't help any. I have 4 computer books and I cannot see any trouble like this on any of them. I have tried to send a question to see if I could find out anything but don't hear anything yet. I don't know if this is another one of Satan's tricks or what is wrong. I never see the text box or save unpublished, I never get that far,I don't know why I can't comment on my page but I can on yours . I won't be here in the morning but I'll try again later.Thank you for listening , love and a hug, Clara

I will take this info to forums and see if it gives someone a clue. If my son were here he would understand and know the problem so maybe someone else will. Just don't give up, we will get you fixed.

Jackie .. after reading what clara wrote here .. I think it has to be a glitch in her computer .. the only thing I would try is go to her start and recover her whole system .. that clears the system of all bugs and takes the computer back to it's original starting point .. although she must be very careful.. for she could lose all her previous work and data if she does it wrong. If I could get on her compu i could do it .. but she should let someone who has done it before do it .. as I said it is only for someone who usually has a virus in their system ..but it works.!

Jackie Lynnley 3 years ago from The Beautiful South Author

Thank you Michael. Yes, I have done that before too, but isn't it strange that she can write on my pages?

if she can write on your computer then it is in her computer ..

Jackie .. you are such a sweet, considerable, compassionate human being for taking your time to help her. Your place in heaven is reserved for sure Jackie .. thank you for helping her ..if there were only millions like you .. this would be such a beautiful world .

Love ya my Southern beauty..

Michael


Jackie 3 years ago

Can't thank you enough Michael and if you brag on me you will take my reward so let's just say I know you would do it too. I will leave her a message, I really had a feeling it probably was her PC. Love you too Michael.

clara kish@yahoo. 3 years ago from Mt. Perry. Ohio

Jackie , I went back to restore to Jan.-5.-2013 but it still has not done anything yet , but I am not giving up yet . I'll get back to you later .Tell Michael thanks for trying to help me . Bye for now Love, Clara


Rayne123 3 years ago

HI Clara

I see you are still having problems with your pc. I am not good at the inner heart of the technology out there today, but I have lots of problems with mine as well, and I was clueless.

Sometimes just uninstalling your windows and then reinstalling it again works. However I could be wrong. Hope to hear from you soon.

Still waiting on your poem.

Good luck

Blessings

Laurie

Hello Jackie,

I was really surprised to get this from Hub Page,it was so nice of you to go to all of this work.nice photos ,etc.I have been trying to get back to you but I don't know if it went through.

I went to Facebook with a friend request so I hope you get it, I will tell you all the latest in my life now.Love all of you,And a Hug to each of you ,love,Clara Kish

Jackie Lynnley 16 months ago from The Beautiful South Author

Clara I am so very sorry; I do know how it feels to lose loved ones and although you get through it knowing there is life everlasting it still does not completely heal that pain. I know you don't go a day or maybe even hours without thinking about them.

I hope you have someone else to help look after you. I am pleased you are still with us. Sorry about your computer; they just need cleaned out ever so often and there are some good hubs here to tell you how to do it and good virus protectors that are free but if you are anything like me you just leave that to someone else to do which can be a long wait.

I am at Facebook too so maybe I will catch you there. I copied your info and will erase it from here if you want me to? Don't forget you can go to my profile and email me if you like.

I would be happy to talk to you anytime I can. God bless you dear heart and I pray He gives you good health and lift your spirits in Jesus' Holy name! Amen

Hello Faith,

It was so good to hear from you and Jackie and to know that you had not forgotten about me,You cannot imagine how good I felt when I found this new article about the HUGS I really needed something like this to make me realize that GOD is not through with me yet.I am living with my son, John,now.I had fallen so many times and I could not stay by myself but since I came down here I have not fallen since.Maybe that part is over with now.I had told Jackie how to get in touch with me,she can tell you or anyone else that wants to write sometimes.it was so good to hear from you both,hugs back to you ,love, Clara

Dear Jackie,

I have been trying to get a message out to you but this is still so messed up,so I am pretty sure that it did not go through to you. I am still writing some new poems and if I can get the computer to cooperative I will send the info to you. If anyone wonders this is a different one than I had all of the trouble with before.It is probably part the computer and part my fault, I will get back to you later ,Love and a HUG to you, Clara
