The Lord God reached into the dust of the earth and made man.
His hands were not the hands of a human but the power and authority of his Spirit that can only be described as awesome. Our mere words do not do it justice
Dust is but a creation of God. That tiny speck of creation was
Spoken into existence by our creator and then formed into something
So magnificent that modern science cannot copy it.
Almighty God took his spoken word and formed a creature from which
we decend. He breathed the breath of life into his creation and it opened
its eyes and stared into the glory before it.
It is not recorded what the first words Adam ever spoke were but deep in the
heart of our redeemer is recorded those very first moments.
A mother always remembers the look on the face of her newborn child the
moment he or she comes into this world. That beautiful face’s image is
imprinted on our soul for eternity. That
is why the death of a child is so hard on its mother.
I wonder what the death of Adam did to God?
I know that if he could have he would have taken his
place. Just as any mother would.
On a hill far away stood and old rugged cross, the writer of the beautiful song sings. Calvary was far away from Eden when measured in increments of time
Jesus Christ was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The very God who gave us life layed his down. Just think it all started from a speck of dust.

Beautiful meditation, very deep and thoughtful! I love this: "He breathed the breath of life into his creation and it opened
its eyes and stared into the glory before it." What a scene! You might want to develop it into more of a dramatic story sometime.

(Hint: to make for easier online reading, it's suggested that we all use a space between paragraphs, rather than format in a solid body of text. Some of us elderly folks with trifocals will thank you for it!) Great stuff, keep writing!
