Enjoying the Garden

I always love this account of God in Genesis 3. Granted, there is a lot going on in the rest of Genesis 3, what with the Fall, Adam and Eve chowing down on the apple, the introduction of death and separation from God, and Adam and Eve being kicked out of the Garden of Eden forever. But right in between all of that, you get an incredible picture of the Lord just enjoying His creation.

As I read it, my mind wanders to God taking a leisurely, relaxing stroll through the garden as the wind gently blows through Eden while the sun continues its afternoon descent in preparation for evening.

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:8, emphasis mine
