We may say, "I will always love you," and that is a sentiment
that can come from the best there is in being human. But it can also be
just a concept, something we say and intend to do. The real task of love
is to be loving this day; if we are able and willing to do that, our "this
days" will add up to "always."

essay "Today and Always"
by the Rev. Canon William A. Kolb
