The Creation of Woman

When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being. When

I created man I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils. But you,

woman, I fashioned. I breathed the breath of life into man because your

nostrils are too delicate. I allowed a deep sleep to come over him so I

could patiently and perfectly fashion you. Man was put to sleep so that

he could not interfere with the creativity of ME.

From one bone I fashioned you. I chose the bone that protects man's

life. I chose the strong yet delicate rib which protects his heart and

lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do. Your characteristics are

as the rib, strength yet delicate and fragile. You provide protection

for the most delicate organs in man, his heart and lungs. His heart is

the center of his whole being, his lungs hold the breath of life. The

rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to

his heart and lungs. Support him as the rib cage supports the body.

Around this one bone I fashioned you. I shaped you. I created you

perfect. Your eyes, don't change them, your lips how lovely when they

part in prayer, your nose so perfect in form, your hands so gentle to

touch. Oh yes, I've touched your hands, I've held your heart. Of all

that lives and breathes you are the most like me. That is why I made you

the mother of life. You see, you woman, reside in me.

Adam walked with me in the cool of the day and yet he was lonely. He

could not see me, or touch me. He could only feel me. So everything I

wanted Adam to share and experience with me I fashioned in you. My

holiness, my strength, my purity, my love, and support, my protection.

You are special because you are the extension of me.

Man represents my image, woman my emotions. Together you represent the

totality of God. So man treat woman well. Love her, respect her for she

is fragile. In hurting her you hurt me. What you do to her, you do to

me. In crushing her you only damage your own heart and lungs. Woman

support man as the rib cage. In humility show him the power of emotion I

have given to you. In gentle quietness show your strength. In love show

him that you are the rib that protects his inner self.
