  1. I love the word of the song “When I Look At You” by Miley Cyrus. They always remind me of the relationship that I have with my husband, especially the lines “..when my world is falling apart, when there’s no light to break up the dark, that’s when I…look at you”. Cheesy, I know, but a story through a song!

    Mary Poppins and Bert the Chimney Sweep in the Mary Poppins books by P. L. Travers. Even though there’s nothing explicit it’s clear that when they’re not being “Mary Poppins” and “Bert” these two are connected, together, more than friends, people who trust each other and who love each other.

  61. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks is a favorite!

  85. I’m an old GFC follower.

    My favorite love story is about this Jewish guy in his early thirties who had special gifts and a heart so full of love he was unashamed to cry in public. Some people called him healer, others called him crazy and yet others saw him as a rebel. For three years he went about with his homeboys teaching about love and relationships. Some people accepted it… others didn’t. Wherever he went stuff happened. Finally He became too radical for those in power and was set up by one of his own homies. He was flogged until he was unrecognizable by his mother and hung on a cross. Even while on the cross he was begging forgiveness for those who rejected, mocked and scorned him. And three days later he resurrected, conquered death and ensured open communication between God and mankind again. Some call him Yeshua…others call him Jesus. I call him love.
