I Love to attend church and what to grow in the gospel. I'm a convert at 51 I have grandchildren and was a single dad raised two children girl and a boy. Wish to meet someone who will allows us as a couple to grow within the gospel.
It seems to me at this point at our ages, all the apples in the barrel are bruised and seconds, a bit warty and off. Both sides need to be more accepting of what is left in the barrel. Plenty of the remaining apples will taste fine despite their blemishes and maybe some of the apples need some work to prepare and make them ready, but if you never choose an apple to cut out the bruise and polish it; it just stays in the barrel.
