Laughter. Crying. Pleasure. Pain. Despair. Hope.
The range of emotions Adam and Eve must have felt is beyond our imagination. As they made a home for themselves outside of the Garden of Eden, they experienced joyous occasions and happy moments. However, they also dealt with the guilt and grief of their decision to disobey God.
The story of the first family unfolds within the first five chapters of Genesis, where we read the basic facts about the fall and the birth of their first children. But have you ever stopped to contemplate what life must have been like for them? When did Adam and Eve tell Cain and Abel about their mistake? What must it have been like seeing the angel guarding the entrance to Eden? How did they deal with parenting issues? Did Adam and Eve argue?
Journey with Carol Gigante as she imagines what life was like for The First Family.
|Carol Gigante lives in Beltsville, Maryland, with her husband. A retired daycare provider, Carol enjoys reading, writing, photography, bird watching, collecting dolls, and serving as a second editorial reader for the Women’s Ministries devotional book project for several years. Carol has always been interested in Adam and Eve’s story, so she decided to write about what their experiences might have been like after leaving the Garden of Eden.
