GOD PAUSE I created family long before I created the church. Yes, I'm the origin of life itself, but I also made the first family --- Adam and Eve --- the original parents of the human race. Of which you are all a part. So there is only one race. Know that there are two invaluable things I've blessed you with --- family and friends. Remember it is I who said “A dear friend will love you no matter what, and a family sticks together through all kinds of trouble.” (Proverbs 17:17). So enjoy your friendships and your families. I have placed them in your life. They are the best picture of how I feel about you, too. I smile as I do life with you. Even right now.
