Quote #12

I knew we were both in mortal danger. Still, in that instant, I felt well. Whole… It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. It was perfect – not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place. (20.70)

The pain is gone as though it never existed, mentally as well as physically. Such is the supernatural power of love! Does this scene seem realistic to you?
