I realize perhaps in the past few years I have come to know how deeply I feel, how deeply I laugh, how deeply I cry, how deeply I love. ... Some may say, "can we love too much"? I would argue no... sometimes there is pain or sadness when the heart grows tender if a loved one is hurt, if we hurt, if there are questions and hardships, or if we grow tender in our hearts wishes as we yearn for answers to the existential questions that sometimes visit. ... yet perhaps in the depths of all types of love, romance, friendship, passion, nurturing, affectionate, and unconditional love. ... it is the true love that holds to the joy and beauty of love of self, others and the good Lord. ... and for those whom we deeply love, though sometimes tenderness come, does not joy in love ring eternal?
