No Stroll Through The Garden

When Adam and Eve walked with God
life wasn’t good, it was great;
but when they bit the apple
their peace and joy did quickly abate.

The price for those rebellious nibbles
was loads of shame, fear and blame
plus expulsion from God’s earthly garden,
self-absorption and death all they gained.

So it certainly stands to reason
for peace and joy to define our lives,
we must repent and walk with Jesus,
from whom they derive and thrive.

Mason Swinney


About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
