Thank you Cybil, that was wonderful. Take God's Word and find Genesis chapter 2, that ought to be easy to find. And uh when you found it, look up here. Years ago, I read a story about an old prospector. They found his skeleton. He had died out in the wilderness somewhere in the Yukon. And not too far away they found his old mule.

And so we're going to be looking at Adam and Eve, the first family. And by the way, they are the first family. Not Bill and Hillary, but Adam and Eve are the first family.
