Letter From God

Let me say from the beginning this is not original.  I did not write this, but I read this somewhere and wanted to share it with you. 

Have you ever looked at yourself and feel that you don’t measure up?  Do you ever compare yourself with others and feel inadequate?  After reading this Letter From God I know your outlook and attitude will change before you finish. 

Dear Woman, 

When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being. Then I created man, 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 this head, to be above him.  You were taken from this 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… lovely when they part in prayer.  Your nose….. so perfect in form.  Your hands….. so gentle to touch.  I’ve caressed you face in your deepest sleep.  I’ve held you 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 my 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.
