( ^_^) Jesus is always there, it just depends if you want to see Him.
As for love turning sour. . . it doesn't. people turn sour. people are bad. sins are bad. love is not bad. love is never bad.
i can't say i know what you're looking for, or what is exactly going wrong, or even how best to fix it. . . all i know is that love and good deeds are never wasted. just becuz no one else gives a d@mn, doesn't me you shouldn't either.
( ^_^) but i'm not good at this kind of stuff~ i'm very simple, so i don't think about those kind of things much~
