You guys are right! Also, Thanks for explaining it in more detail; I like how you made it so clear. I understood the proverb, but the literal help with iron, that is really cool, and countenance defined is helpful too. I always think of face, and the expression on your face, how it is often indicative of what is in your heart. You guys are cool! I Love Christians! Instant brothers and sisters!
