Thanks to my good friend, Amy for sharing this with me this morning.

This is really deep. Enjoy and keep it going.

If you ever look at yourself and feel that you don't measure up, read this and your outlook will change before you finish reading it!

This is good to keep, not just to read from time to time, but to also keep stored in your heart! Enjoy and remember who you are....

A Letter from God to Women

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 after 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. From one bone, I fashioned you. I chose the bone that protects man's life. I chose the rib, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do.

Around this one bone, I shaped you.... I modeled you. I created you perfectly and beautifully. Your characteristics are as the rib, strong yet delicate and fragile. You provide 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 rib cage will allow itself to be broken before 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 most like me.

Adam walked with me in the cool of the day, 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 an extension of me. Man represents my image, woman my emotions. Together, you represent the totality of God.

So man......treat women well. Love her, respect her, for she is fragile but yet strong at the same time.

Blessed be...

I was overcome with emotion when I got to this line:

"Of all that lives and breathes, you are most like me."

I've always thought that - women are most like God. Certainly, at least 50 percent of him. Have you read The Shack? I didn't particularly care for parts of it. But, I did like the author's explanation of why God was a Father in reference instead of a Mother. He said something like - men were less likely to commune with him - and so choosing more of a male persona He (God) hoped to draw more men, who were more fragile, weak, sinful, whatever, to Him.) Yep. Chicks are superior. We always knew that. hahahahahahaha!
