Agape. Greek. love that is without expectations of return, unconditional, selfless. The love Jesus had for us when he suffered and died on the cross for us. The love he felt while carrying his cross, and stopped to console the women. This is the love we strive for: the kind a parent has for their newborn baby in the middle of the night...every night . That is agape

Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower.
