Eve and Me

Eve and me, sisters of sin.
The fruit was just too tempting, and we fell. Plain and simple. We fell.
I can still feel the power of his question heavy on my spirit, What have you DONE?*
We polished each excuse and rationale as if they were apples of gold and offered them up to the lord. We even tried to blame others for our demise. When that failed to appease our guilt ,we pointed our fingers heavenward and audaciously accused our bent for the desire on the creator. But God wasn't fooled. He saw it coming. He wasn't surprised by our choice, nor was he limited in response and rescue by the division of time or temporal juxtapositions. He knew Eve and Me. He knows you, too.

 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
 Romans 3:23

But God demonstrated His own love toward us, 
in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8 

Forgiveness, Grace, Mercy, Eternal Life
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift.
2 Corinthians 9:15

*Genesis 3:13
