"When a bride adores her bridegroom, night and day she thinks about him, imagines him, and lives only for him. Not a single moment goes by without him passing through her thoughts and dripping into her heart the sweetness of love and of hoping to meet. In this way she communicates with her beloved unceasingly. So in the same way, we too should remain with our Lord Jesus Christ."
~ Elder Ephraim of Arizona
