  3. Life is beautiful if one has his/her life centered on God
    They do have that right. They even have the right to say things that may be hurtful or offensive. And I have the right to say "I find your presumption that you are better than me based on your...

  4. Life is beautiful if one has his/her life centered on God

  9. Life is beautiful if one has his/her life centered on God

  10. ATI anyone?
