“And the Lord God formed a man’s body from the dust of the ground and breathed into it the breath of life. And the man became a living person.” Genesis 2: 7 NLT
Lifeless, cold and perfectly formed, this creation by heavenly hands laid upon the grass. A gentle breeze impregnated with fragrant aromas of pine, roses and lilacs tinkled the creator’s nose. Shaking the dust from His hands, the Lord noticed a deer peaking from behind a hedge. Eden was His paradise. A place created with cascading waterfalls, colorful plants that almost took His breath away. Only one more heavenly task remained. The keeper of this Eden lay upon the grass.
Closer and closer, the creator’s face came to the lifeless form. The Lord God stroked the hand of His new man. His skin was soft to the touch with muscular fingers, but still no movement. “These hands would care for my paradise.” the Lord whispered. Closer and closer, the Lord God came. Gently opening His creation’s eyes, a pair of blue eyes starred back at the Lord God. “Oh, Adam, what wonders these eyes would behold.” Closer and closer, the Lord God came to the face of his newly formed man. With His right hand, the Lord God stroked the left ear, no movement. With the Lord’s left hand, He tickled the right ear, no reaction from His creation. Closer and closer, the Lord God came to the face of Adam. With puff of air, the Lord God breathed into Adam’s nose.
Fingers twitched, eye lids opened, and Adam viewed Eden for the first time. The aroma of pine and roses tickled Adam’s nose. Adam was a living soul - the Lord God’s keeper of Eden.
