"Tears of Deception" is based on a story that my father told me. It demonstrates the power of forgiveness and love over vengeance and hate. It is a love story that contains a religious awakening that would allow one to see the mercy of God. Pachouco, in his love life deceptions, quickly recognized the power of prayers because his mother, Faye Esther, was a praying woman. Pachouco understood that God could and will pardon anyone who confesses and repents their sins. He also understood God's capability to look beyond the sinner's fault and saw his needs. Again, this is the power of love, confession, and forgiveness. Pachouco learned a valuable lesson: "Never said never" because God is in control.
