you and I are made for.

have done something lousy. Your body tells you. You, you feel it in
your stomach. Anger, resentment affects you.

you were the only person on earth.

on the palms of Gods hands and God loves you not because you are

all eternity, you have been part of Gods plan.
- All, all, held
in an embrace of love that will not let us go. God gives up on no one.
