“Oh Lord God, why won’t this pain go away. It feels…it feels like darkness. And it’s pressing all around me, I can’t see, I can’t hear, I can’t think. I don’t know what to do.

My son, my beautiful son, he’s gone. Oh Able. Able. Why did Cain do it? WHY?? I don’t understand it. Maybe I am to blame. They were my children, I should have taught Cain to love You more. Why did he do this?

It is my fault. I started this sorrow. I ate the fruit. I brought this sorrow into my own heart.

It hurts…the pain…my children…they’re both gone now.

Lord God, I am sorry.”

“Ohhh Lord God, I felt it. I just felt the movement. Is it true? Is there really another child inside me. I know it’s true. I’ve seen my belly start to grow; I’ve felt the changes in my body. I am carrying a child.

Will I have another son? Will he grow to love you? Lord God, please, may he grow to love you. Not another Cain. I couldn’t bear that again.

But I have hope. I know it won’t be the same. You have given me another chance.

I feel such hope…such joy…another child is on the way.

Oh Lord God, please help me.”

“Lord God, My mouth wants to sing. My feet want to dance. I am exhausted, but I feel so strong. So strong and young again. So full of life. I have a son. Seth.

You have given me another son. Carrying him, bringing him into this world…oh the pain was worth it – worth every moment. And now there is only joy. Joy has wiped away all traces of pain.

Look at him, suckling on my breast, just moments old. I am overwhelmed with love…for him, for my husband, Adam, for You Lord God. Especially for you!

My heart is about to burst…here I am, a mother once more…and I am ready. Ready to start this new season of my life.

Oh Lord God, thank you.”

What a unique way to approach this topic! I really appreciated this. You might want to correct the spelling of "Abel" if you re-publish this. I really like the way you got under Eve's skin...good job.

Good job! You identified pretty well the feelings Eve would be having in each of these three times of her life. Her grief over the loss of both sons was especially well done. I have nothing more to add to what Jan has already said.
