    You see, I read this in a completely diffenent context.

    Of course begging for everything you need is not a very healthy way to have to live.

    However, if by “living on your knees” it is meant much time in prayer, then perhaps the other kind of “kneeing” would be less necessary. Maybe.

  4. psychscribe Says:

    Yes of course…you’re talking in a completely different context mssc54…I could never argue your point about prayer.

  5. psychscribe Says:

    fibi: Right?!

    leafless: i couldn’t agree with you more.
