30 Days of Touching

Day 25: Massage

Do you like to have a massage? I happen to think that one of the finer pleasures of life is to have someone rub my body, knead my muscles and turn me into butter. Usually that somebody is David and when he gives me a good back rub—a really good one—I feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven!

What is it about the sensation of having your body rubbed that is so wonderful? Maybe it’s the fact that when our muscles are tight, massage loosens them. Actually, I think mine melt. The pleasure of a massage is only half the benefit. The other half is how relaxed it makes you feel.

Questions for spiritual direction: What helps you loosen up and let go of the tightness and control inside you? What massages your heart for God and gets the blood flowing?
