Maria Doherty is a soulful artist. Love is the ultimate gift of a person to another. LOve does not thrive on deception. Honesty is a pillar in relationships. If you conduct your life by promising but not delivering in an act of deception, you will no longer be credible. Word of honor should be respected. . . . . some people do not abide by it ... they are not honest... they exploit people and situations. Beware of these people for they are vexations to the spirit. They could be the viper lurking in the grass. A viper is a venomous snake.
