Like pebbles skipping across ponds,
Unrequited lovers’ souls put to flight
Cross the seas of the Great Beyonds,
And buoy up out of sight.

Jesus replied, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.’ ~ Matthew 22:37, TLB
Dear friends, let us practice loving each other, for love comes from God and those who are loving and kind show that they are the children of God, and that they are getting to know him better. But if a person isn’t loving and kind, it shows that he doesn’t know God—for God is love. ~ 1 John 4:7-8, TLB
