MORE ON ADAM AND EVE
so recently i finished reading Donald Miller’s “Searching for God Knows What” (which i found to be a refreshing look at the meaning and relevance of the gospel story and highly recommend it to anyone). in it, he writes an account of his imagined story of the time between Adam’s creation and Eve’s creation. he reasons that it probably took Adam a hundred (lonely) years of naming animals before God put him to sleep and made Eve. so Adam waited a very long time before Eve showed up.
reading on in Genesis, the same pattern is found. Isaac waits for Rebekah. Jacob waits for Rachel. the list goes on.
so ever since the very beginning, men have waited for women.
just an observation. :)
