Generations

July 1, 2008

I can taste the fruit of Eve.
I’m aware of sickness, death and disease.
The results of her choices were vast.
Eve was the first, but she wasn’t the last.
If I were honest with myself,
had I been standing at that tree,
my mouth and my hands would be covered with fruit.
Things I shouldn’t know and things I shouldn’t see.


She taught us to fear the serpent.
I’m learning to fear myself
and all of the things I am capable of
in my search for wisdom, acceptance and wealth.
To say the devil made me do it is a cop-out and a lie.
The devil can’t make me do anything when I’m calling on Jesus Christ.

Remind me of this with every decision.
Generations will reap what I sow.
I can pass on a curse or a blessing to those I will never know.

from this song, on this album. hope no one gets tired of sara groves. I never do!

    I recently treated myself to a Sara Grove CD, on your recommendation alone. I love it! (The earworms from her oh-so-memorable songs, not so much.) 🙂
