GNT … Be strong, patient, selfless and love will abide in unbroken love with you. Where love was betrayed there was a garden. Where there is love, lonely places blossom as the rose.
Be not afraid! Love on! Love always! “This is the true God, and eternal life.”
But one thought of hatred or ill-will will cause the experience to vanish and you will have to start all over again.
