The Garden of Eden


The Lord made trees of every kind grow, both pleasant for the eye and good for food.
But there was an animal named a serpent that was really rude.
He did not want God's plans to rule.
So he decided to use Eve as a tool.
In the middle of the garden God planted the tree of life, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
But in it lived the Devil.
He knew if Eve ate the apple, man would fall.
Sin would come in between man and God like a wall.
Adam and Eve ate it and their eyes were opened to their nakedness.
When the Lord found them, they were forced to confess.
The Lord was angered, but did not let them die.
Even though the disobedience made him cry.
Instead he punished all man so they can suffer.
He even made giving birth tougher.
That was the beginning of sin.
That day the Devil did win.
He had victory over our soul.
He had the power to make our life painful.
This is where our story begins.
How our beautiful life became cluttered with sins.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
