  1. Eugenia,

    Eve gave into temptation. Too bad she didn’t wait for God to impart the wisdom that she craved. Patience is a virtue and one we should strive to have with all things. Nice verse to accompany the inspirational image, my dear. Have a blessed week!

  6. Hello Eugenia

    Here’s my take on the tree of life. Had written this sometime back when I had suddenly discovered this old house with a banyan tree growing all over it, literally. Hope you like it. 🙂

    • Your ping is #13 – it comes through as – “Tree of life – I Believe, Because” – and I don’t know why. If you click on that link, it leads to your blog – My Forever.
