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.

Love the pic and great ideas for Valentine’s Day.



~post by Julie W.

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….)
