The sins of Adam and of Eve
Condemned the human race.
To death and sin, corruption too,
Until God showed us grace.
So don’t blame God for suffering
You see around today
Blame man who wallows in his sin
And tries things his own way.
If we would follow God’s great plans
And live within His will
We’d find more blessing; life would not
Be such a bitter pill.
The grace He showed to Adam and
To Eve so long ago
Still carries us today, and I
Know that I need it so.
We can live life abundantly
With blessings flowing free
If we accept the grace God has
Reserved for you and me.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
