    • Hi Maryanne! That’s great. 🙂 Even though I say I’m not religious… I enjoy hearing what others believe! I would love to be able to love something I couldn’t see. So, I sit on the fence so to speak! Hope you have a great day! Hugs Paula xxx

    • Morning dear, Alastair! Sleep well, did we? …Excellent!! Lol
      I see with your mum that kind of helped you to believe, didn’t it? One day I shall face the man in person and maybe he will forgive me… for not believing he ever came to my aid! If not I shall live a very hot existence! Enjoy the day. 🙂 Hugs Paula x
