Does matter have heat energy when it is cold?

Because molecules in matter are always moving, virtually all matter has some heat energy, even when it seems cold to you. Matter that seems cold is merely not as hot as objects near it, or as hot as your hand. It still has temperature and thus heat energy. As long as its temperature is above -459.7°, it has heat energy.
