Genesis 1
Genesis has the most memorable opening phrase in the history of opening phrases.
"It was the best of times; it was the worst of times."
"It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen."
"All children, except one, grow up."
"If you're looking for a self-help book or a Bible study, this isn't that book."
"Today you became a father.....and you find yourself reflecting, for the first time, on what an awesome responsibility it is to parent a child."
There's only one way to say it.
You'll find good people making questionable life choices and regrettable spur-of-the-moment decisions.
How our loving Heavenly Father can bring redemption and restoration into the most difficult of situations.
