Ah, thanks, Tiara. And Pup, yes, they would have had to marry siblings. Back then the bloodlines were more pure, so it wouldn't have created the cross-marrying defects that can happen now. It was quite common for cousins to marry until more recently, and that early in history with so few people, there really wasn't any other choice than to marry family.

I always felt the Lord had made more than just Adam in the beginning, as the passage that states, "male and female HE made them." (have to look up the actual passage later as I am at work.)
I think the "them" in "he made them" just is plural because there were two of them: Adam and Eve. That would be grammatically correct even if there were just two.
Becky, that's exciting you'll be getting your licence soon. I know driving is scary at first, but it'll get easier and the test isn't that bad. The test here in Washington is one of the hardest, and I passed okay, so I know you'll do fine. And if you get nerves and have to take it more than once then that's okay, too.
I'm actually really a good parallel parker. Really, I am.
I have to do it all the time, so that keeps me in practice. But on the test I got nervous and had to jimmy around something awful, and I think I failed that part and backing around a corner (which I've never been good at) but I still passed the test.
Holly, how frustrating that you can't work ahead in the class. Hope he responds well to your email. Glad that other than that things are going okay.
I'm suppose to start work at that other church tomorrow but haven't heard back from the pastor again. We were suppose to meet to talk about the job so I could ask questions I had and he could talk to me.... At least I have other paid work so it wouldn't be the end of the world if that fell through, but would be nice to keep it.
