Generations

Fruit tree at the Eden Project

I can taste the fruit of Eve. I’m aware of sickness death and disease. The results of her choices were vast. Eve was the first but she wasn’t the last. If I were honest with myself, had I been standing at that tree, my mouth and my hands would be covered with fruit. Things I shouldn’t know and things I shouldn’t see.

Remind me of this with every decision. Generations will reap what I sow. I can pass on a curse or a blessing to those I will never know.

She taught us to fear the serpent. I’m learning to fear myself and all of the things I am capable of in my search for acceptance, wisdom and wealth. To say the devil made me do it is a cop-out and a lie. The devil can’t make me do anything when I’m calling on Jesus Christ.

Remind me of this with every decision. Generations will reap what I sow. I can pass on a curse or a blessing to those I will never know.

To my great-great-great-granddaughter, live in peace. To my great-great-great-grandson, live in peace. To my great-great-great granddaughter, live in peace. To my great-great-great-grandson, live in peace, live in peace.

Remind me of this with every decision. Generations will reap what I sow. I can pass on a curse or a blessing to those I will never know.

Eve was the first but she wasn’t the last.

  3. Right Amanda! Eve was the first but definitely isn’t the last! As Eves of this generation, we all have to be careful as we surely would like to pass on blessings and not curse!
