And very beautiful gold of fall. Your comments Always welcome a greatly appreciated. Yes sometimes you have to dress the truth of God's love up a little to attract, the mind to read it. Lol. Although the love of the human being is the centerfold of himself, the heart of the soul. No untruth there, thanks so much for reading, Sincerely Moses
