    Bless you Weena
    I referred to the whole of Chapter 13
    The last verse will do
    But the greatest of these is love
    My own interpretation being, you cant "get to Heaven by prayer alone"

    Stay happy.......JB

    love..

    Love, in order to last, requires creativity: we must tend to love the same way we tend to our gardens, sow new ideas in it, pull out the weeds that risk smothering it, harmonize everything peacefully together.:smile:

    smile...

    A simple smile in passing often makes the difference between a good, and a dull, cold day.

    L.t.


    A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.

    one for the Dude:

    Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife.
    (Proverbs 21:19)

    actually two:

    No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord.
    (Deuteronomy 23:1)

    but of course there is also a solution :

    (Deuteronomy 25:11-12)

    If two men, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity.
