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 my creativity.
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: strong, 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 are the windows to your soul;, your lips are so lovely when they part in prayer; your nose is so perfect in form; your hands are 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, woman, you 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 and 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.
