deep belief in the power of love means that we must
make a commitment to keep on giving even when we cannot see
any immediate results. Love, after all, is not just an isolated act
- it is a process that flows out of an attitude of optimism and
hope. So what do I do in those moments when I don't feel like pouring
my energy into loving acts? Keep on doing them! Have we not learned that
love is not just a feeling but also an action?
