    For Christmas I gave my husband Psalm 91.
    Not all of it, just the first two verses:
    “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the most high will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”

Sunday evening we examined Genesis four which revealed the root cause of the worldwide flood.
