it seemed so harmless

Saturday, May 19, 2012

The Lord God gave the man this order: You are free to eat from any of the trees of the garden except the tree of knowledge of good and evil. From that tree you shall not eat; when you eat from it you shall die.  (Gen. 2,16)
But the snake said to the woman: “You certainly will not die!

It seemed so harmless. Just one individual eating good fruit from a good tree. There was no reason not to, other than that God said not to do so. Besides, God didn't say it to Eve, he only said it to Adam.

Indeed, they ate of the fruit and experienced no harmful consequence. In fact it was kind of good: Then the eyes of both of them were opened. Perhaps it was all a misunderstanding.

So what's it to you that Eve wants to eat from that tree. She's not doing anything to you. It's between her and God.

just relaxing

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Just a relaxing Saturday so far. I mowed the lawn yesterday evening so that's out of the way. I just fertilized our trees and shrubs out front. Right now I'm taking a little break while the dishes are soaking, then I'll get to washing the dishes.

There's lots of time-consuming stuff that needs to get done when Gumby wakes up. Stuff that's been put off because I get home so late during the week. We'll try to catch up on that stuff this weekend. I had a good ol' nine hours of sleep last night. Gumby had some insomnia issues, I guess.

I'm sure there's lots of stuff that needs doing that I'm forgetting right now. Difficult to remember these things when I have a propensity to just relax. hmm...the cars need washing and the dog needs a bath. But right now the dishes are calling.
