Early on God had not sent rain to water the earth – no one had been created to cultivate the soil. In that time springs – a mist “came up from the ground and watered the land.”
Then God made mankind-- in His image. He breathes life into us. Then and now.
Their home was in the garden. Oh the garden. Beautiful and diverse.
Colors, aroma, delectable flavors and the cool breeze. Abundance. The land and sea were filled – the water teeming with fish and the land producing sustenance. All that was needed. Abundant.
Companionship with God.
Companionship with each other.
Belonging to God.
Belonging to each other.
