Two Gardens

Eden                                              Gethsemane
A glorious beginning                                             A tragic conclusion
The command for light                                          The dread of darkness
The joy of goodness                                              The pain of sorrow
The creation of man                                              The preparation of Christ
Communion with The Creator                                  Separation from The Creator
Ultimate perfection                                              Ultimate grief
The forbidden tree                                               The inevitable tree
The selfish choice                                                 The selfless choice
Death.                                                                  Life.
