strong, yet delicate and fragile ♥
Monday, August 17, 2009
When man was created, he was formed, and life was breathed into his nostrils. But a woman, was fashioned after man because she is too delicate. He allowed deep sleep to come over man so he could patiently and perfectly make her.
Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity. From one bone, he fashioned her. He chose the rib, which protects man's heart and lungs and supports him, as she is meant to do. Around this one bone he shaped her, he modeled her, He created her perfectly and beautifully.
A woman's characteristics are as the rib: strong, yet delicate and fragile. She provides protection for the most delicate organ in man, his heart. His heart is the center of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life. The ribcage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart.
She supports man as the ribcage supports the body. She was not taken from his feet, to be under him, nor was she taken from his head, to be above him. She was taken from his side, to stand by him and to be held close to his side.
She is God's perfect angel.. Her eyes, always holds the truth. Her lips, how lovely when they part in prayer. Her hands, so gentle to touch. God has caressed her face in her deepest sleep. He has held her heart close to his. Of all that lives and breaths, she is most like God . Man walked with God in the cool of the day, yet he was lonely. He could not see him or touch him.
He could only feel him. So everything God wanted Man to share and experience with him, He fashioned in her: his holiness, his strength, his purity, his love, his protection, and support. Woman is special because is an extension of God. Man represents his image, Woman his emotions. Together, they represent the totality of God.
So man, treat woman well. Love her, respect her, for she is fragile. In hurting her, you hurt God. What you do to her, you do to him. In crushing her, you only damage your own heart; the heart of your Father and the heart of her Father. Woman, support man. In humility, show him the power of emotion God has given you. In gentle quietness, show your strength. In love, show him that you are the rib that protects his inner self.
