Spiritual Insights for Everyday Life

There’s an idea afoot that God cursed Adam and Eve because they disobeyed him.

But that’s not what the Bible says.

The whole story unfolds in Genesis chapter 3.

God had said to Adam, “You may freely eat of every tree in the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you may not eat, for on the day that you eat of it you will certainly die.” (Genesis 2:16–17).

However, after God created Eve from one of Adam’s ribs, and the two of them became husband and wife, that crafty old serpent (really, just a glorified snake) got busy.

That’s where we pick up the story in Genesis 3.

Though Adam was in the garden with Eve, the serpent ignored him completely. Instead, he went to work on Eve: “Did God really say, ‘You may not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

Love this pic of this building, beautiful…

Yeah, yeah, I know today is meant to be about me learning something new, but I was awake half the night trying to work out what to do and came up with nothing.  I could have searched the internet, and to tell the truth, I was planning on doing that, but then this morning I was given an opportunity to go somewhere and see a new building.  Through a wonderful friend I have made through this blog I was allowed to go on a tour of the Deaf Children of Australia‘s buildings in St Kilda Road.  It is a fabulous 1866 blue stone building with a history to match.  So, if you don’t mind I might do a post on this.  It is a new venture for me hopefully, so it is still me doing something new.

So tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. I have total faith in my Valentine to pony up with the flowers, chocolate, champagne, etc. But you know, just in case, I thought I might point out a few things I’ve found around the store that might, I don’t now, make the PERFECT VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT FOR ME. Or someone like me. Or me.

The New Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook by Martha Hopkins & Randall Lockridge

Organized by aphrodisiac, this cookbook covers nineteen sensual foods, from ginger to strawberries to oysters,with some very lovely photography. Of course you don’t just give a cookbook on Valentine’s Day. You cook from it. And surprise me with the meal. By candlelight. Yes.

One word: JEWELERY. (Specifically, that lightning bolt necklace on the left there. There are also earring to match. The lockets are also awfully nice….)
