Evidence of the Fall...

I don't know about you, but my lawn is absolutely covered in fallen leaves. If you look closely, you may be able to see a blade of grass or two. Yesterday, I began blowing these leaves into a huge pile, and a thought occurred to me.
I wondered if leaves fell off trees before the fall. I would assume that before the fall, there was no sin, no death, no effects of fallenness. My conclusion, then, would be that leaves did not fall before the fall.
In fact, one of the consequences of sin was that Adam would labor on the earth. So yesterday as I raked, I thought about Adam, which led me to think about the Fall of man. Happy raking!
