Today’s Scattered Seeds
Drawn from my archives
If we go back to the story of Adam and Eve, we discover an interesting fact that’s often overlooked by the reader.
In fact, we’ll often see the couple illustrated in children’s books covered in fig leaves. That’s cute. But the truth is that the fig leaves were merely an attempt to cover their sin.
“And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.” Genesis 3:7
We see the grace of God in verse 21 where it says, “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.”
Sin will always leave us naked and exposed, but the garment of salvation comes by grace. He doesn’t merely cover up the stench of our sin, He adorns us with the righteousness of Christ as a bride adorns herself with jewels.
“I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10, KJV

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
