klappande hjärta

Many holidays are connected with the habit to give presents. The value does not have to be great - you appreciate the thought behind the gift. A gift is a sign of friendship. Perhaps a box with sweets in the shape of hearts?

Among the youth it can be that you ask somebody to be a messenger and deliver a rose to the boy or girl you are interested in. Often an anonymous greeting. The colour has a symbolism, the colour is giving a secret message. A red rose stands for love, a yellow rose stands for friendship, a pink rose is a sign that you are interested in the person who you send the flower to.

The symbol of All Hearts Day - the beating red heart - is a secret sign for true friendship and true love. The heart is reminding of love, but it is also the most vulnerable part of a human being. Red is the colour of love, but it is also the colour of blood.
Friendship is a kind of essence of how life here on our earth is thought to be. Egoism and friendship exclude each other. If you want to get a friend, you must begin with being a friend yourself.

God's red heart is beating for us human beings - with love and pain.

klappande hjärta

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get,
only with what you are expecting to give,
which is everything

klappande hjärta

It's not WHAT you have in your life,
but WHO you have in your life that counts.

klappande hjärta

Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.

klappande hjärta

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.
We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
Albert Schweitzer

klappande hjärta
He who has a loving heart
Can mend the things that fall apart.
