You have to have a heart of love
To love a heart that is in need.
Serve words of kind encouragement
And top it off with helpful deed.

Wait patiently and you should see
That pain-filled heart grows trust inside.
As love breaks down protective walls
No longer will it chose to hide.

Love works its wonders everywhere
And that’s how hearts are won!
Let’s join the heart of Christ our Lord
And love until Love’s work is done!

Karin-- I loved this, darling! :)

And the photo is really beautiful! :)

The beauty of the rose will never grow old! :)

Karin-- I understand what you are saying--but then--there are some people--their protective walls are just too thick and they don't want them knocked down-- :(

That makes me sad :(

You have to wonder how the world could change if we truly followed the wonderful words of this poem. Good job.
