|Fountain in Rose Garden|
Genesis chapter three comes to mind. God walks in the Garden of Eden, in the cool of the evening. I see the light filter through the trees with golden curtains of light. Adam and Eve had eaten of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. They are hiding from God. Did they play hide and seek before this with God as innocent children?
There are many questions about the beginning. I had heard the Garden of Eden was a very large area of land. Was it manicured or wild or both? I wonder how long Adam and Eve played in the Garden before the serpent showed up to tempt them. I do imagine they delighted in God's visits, as He rejoiced in His creation, sweet communion. The verse of God searching for them intrigues mankind. He is on the look out for His children.
Jesus' mission on Earth was to seek and save what was lost. Over and over again, we read how He determined to talk to individuals; Matthew, a tax collector, as well as another, Zacchaeus. There are no chance encounters with the Lord.
