Expulsion from the Garden of Eden, I Know that My Redeemer Liveth, Caterpillar

 Expulsion From the Garden of Eden by Thomas Cole

The original of this painting is very large.  Notice how small Adam and Eve are as they leave the garden and head into the cursed world.  Notice the contrasts on the two sides of the gate.
For a brief biography of his life click the following link:

Again this week from George Frideric Hadel's oratorio, The Messiah, today's piece is called "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth".
It's good to know that God has provided a Redeemer and that He lives after viewing the above picture of the Fall and how it affects our lives.  

Christina Rossetti

Brown and furry
Caterpillar in a hurry
Take your walk
To the shady leaf, or stalk,
Or what not,
Which may be the chosen spot.
No toad spy you,
Hovering bird of prey pass by you;
Spin and die,
To live again a butterfly.
