I recently ran across this and was struck by it's beauty. I've always felt love and respect for Eve. What an incredible woman to be able to make such an important decision! I can't even begin to imagine what a fantastic spirit she must have been to be chosen and trusted to be the first woman, the mother of us all. This painting makes me think about how hard it must have been to make the choice to partake of the fruit, to learn the consequences, and then realize that she would have to leave the presence of God. I don't know if I could have done it and I am grateful for her choice and courage to give us life.
