There’s nothing wrong with Joy though so many are sad.

So thank you God for Joy. Live joy.

There’s nothing wrong with Hope though so many are despair.

So thank you God for Hope. Live hope.

There’s nothing wrong with Faith though we're so cynical

So thank you God for Faith. Live Faith.

There’s nothing wrong with Love though ambivalence reigns.

So thank you God for Love. Live Love.

We will not give up on love.
