There has already been a discussion concerning the original promise of a Savior when Adam and Eve made their first "boo boo" in the Garden of Eden. Let's explore this promise some more.
My son, Jackson, who is now 10 but will be 11 in October, is a child who has been diagnosed as being ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Understanding is the key to any disorder.
Genesis 3:13--"So the Lord god said to the woman, 'What is this you have done?' The woman said, 'The serpent deceived me, and I ate.'

Alana had her medicine switched around, again. Her doctor took her off of the Zyprexa and added Abilify to her mediation regime. Sometimes a medicine will work and sometimes it won't.
The last article blog for this series...LIVING AS IN THE DAYTIME. Daytime here means in the Light of the Lord or in the Day of the Lord.
