It was just hanging there.
The sweet citrus aroma greeted her before she saw it, and as she inhaled, she closed her eyes, enjoying it.
Her eyes refocused and took it all in. She admitted, it looked perfect. Beautiful tones. Luscious, juicy, and tasty. Just the right size, just the right shape. She had not seen another like it anywhere. It was perfect. And she wanted it.
There was just one problem.
God said no.
She didn’t like that word. “No” meant no fun. It felt like she was fenced in, and frankly, she wasn’t used to that feeling. There was so much she could do in this beautiful place – why was this gorgeous thing off limits?
Was God trying to punish her by keeping this wonderfulness out of her grasp?
Didn’t He want her to be happy?
And besides, didn’t He make this handsome yumminess too? Why was it so wrong that she wanted to just appreciate it? Really, she was just giving credit to God by enjoying it. Wasn’t she?
