Le Jardin

Reading up in Genesis, and God is walking and enjoying his garden, Ready to bust Adam and Eve on their disobedience.

“And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.  Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, ‘Where are you?'” –  Genesis 3:8-9

And as the scene played out where God found out they ate from the tree they weren’t supposed to with Adam blaming the woman, and Eve blaming the serpent…I was singing Lenny Kravtiz.  “…your kingdom will come, your will will be done on earth…as it is in heaven…yeahhhhhh.”

Gift of Nostrils

Where my mind takes me as I’m reading passages of the Bible…

So reading up on Genesis and the creation of man kind.

“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” – Genesis 2:7

Which got me to thinking how God  must have blown harder into some people -as their nostrils are flared more.  Does that mean they are more full of life?  And an image of the Russ Troll doll kept popping in my head.  Man, so much breath…it flared the nostrils AND made the hair stick up. (and possibly some belly buttons to pop out?)

Earth Came with a sprinkler system?

So that’s where they got their idea from…Genesis 2:6

Reading up on the Garden of Eden.

My random thoughts…

In Chapter 1, we get the introduction to the world.  God originally designed us to be Vegetarians.  Ew.  But, okay.  I love me some steak and perhaps it’s because after the flood, man was instructed he could kill animals for food.  But we were originally designed to be vegetarian.  We didn’t have to hunt.  Up until that point, man and animal lived in harmony.  Can you imagine being able to hang out and walk up to any deer?  Well, that all went away, once we were eating them…they started fearing us.

So Chapter 2, 4:6, it basically restates how seed is growing on plants, and trees are bearing fruit, without man to toil the ground.  God didn’t yet have it rain. 

“but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.” – Genesis 2:6

WAIT A MINUTE!  Time out…you mean Earth originally came with its own sprinkler system?   Now we know where the grocery stores got their idea for the misters.
