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.”
