Re: Do you believe in Karma, Guardian Angel, other?

Absolutely believe - I also strongly believe in the powers of St. Anthony - I can't tell you how many times he has helped me find things I have lost.

Karma - I sort of believe in. I do think many people escape from karma.

She just wants to GO......She's not a nasty horse - but, she wants to make the decisions. I could write th...
