When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being. When I created man, Iformed him andbreathed life into his nostrils.



But you, woman, I fashioned after I breathed the breath of life into manbecauseyour nostrils are too delicate.



I allowed adeep sleep to come over him, so I could patiently andperfectly fashion you.



Man wasput to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity. Fromone bone I fashioned you.



I chose the bone that protects man's life. Ichose therib, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do.



Around this one bone Ishaped you. I modeled you. I created you perfectly and beautifully.



Your characteristics are as the rib, strong yetdelicate and fragile.You provide protection for themost delicate organ in man, his heart.



His heart isthe center of his being; his lungs hold the breath oflife. The rib cage will allow itself to be brokenbefore it will allow damage to the heart.



Support man as the rib cage supports the body. You were not taken from his feet, to be under him, nor were you taken from his head, to be above him. You were taken from his side, to stand beside him and be held close to his side.





You are my perfect angel. You are my beautiful little girl. You have grown to be a splendid woman of excellence, and my eyes fill when I see the virtues in your heart.



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.



I've caressed your face in your deepest sleep; I've held your heart close to mine.



Of all that lives and breathes, you are the most like 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, my protection and support.



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, the heart of your Father, and the heart of her Father.



Woman - support man. In humility, show him the power of emotion I have given you.



In gentle quietness show your strength. In love, show him that you are the rib that protects his inner self.
