The Meeting of Two Mothers

I wonder what the meeting would have been like if Eve, the mother of all humanity, could have met pregnant Mary, the mother of Jesus.

I can only imagine the flood of emotion that would overwhelm Eve as she remembered tasting the flavor of forbidden fruit and receiving its sorrow for her children.  She would approach Mary knowing that within her the Seed of her own redemption was growing- a Seed that would give her offspring a second chance. That Seed of a second chance would produce an untainted God-fruit that could only be harvested in a grace-garden outside the fence line of a corrupted and closed Eden.

I can see Eve placing her hand in wonderment on the taut and bulging belly of Mary and feeling God move! Tears of joy would have coursed down Eve’s cheeks splashing on the ground between the two women. This would be the first flow of the irrigation system for the fruit of our redemption. These irrigating tears of joy flow when an impossible way is finally made possible.  That impossible way made possible is your greatest gift this Christmas.

For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37
