Woman…Made in God’s Image

Woman ~ Made in God's Image

Woman ~ Made in God

A good friend sent this e-mail. It will change the way you look at yourself ~ Forever.

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 my 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 will or 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.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
