      This would be a situation where the quote "more is better" should be used, just love me some cherry pie and this sounds crazy good! And 2 scoops please!
      John 10:27-30 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Fatherís hand. I and the Father are one.
