{when you've been kicked out of the Garden}
Imagine Adam and Eve
walking with God in the Garden. Enjoying the cool of the day, talking,
communing, loving and being loved. A perfect intimacy. The Garden reality. Adam

{don't step here}
A few weeks ago I interrupted my kids' summer plans of vegging-out-in-the-air-conditioned-house-alllllll-day by forcing them to come pick wild flowers with me. I was helping with a party for a friend, and with the wild flowers in bloom along every country r...
