God’s creations were not complete … till He made woman
Genesis 2:18 and 21 thru 24
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God mad a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
The man said. “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, for she was taken out of man.”
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
God had made man and beast but according to the bible all his creating was not complete until he made woman. God could have made her from the dust of the ground but instead he chose to make her from the flesh and bone of man. In so doing, He illustrates for us that in marriage man and woman symbolically become one flesh. This is both a spiritual and physical union between our hearts and lives. God illustrates how important and special this union is throughout the entire bible.
God forms and equips men and women for various tasks, but all these tasks lead to the same goal of honoring God our Father. Man in the scripture gives life to woman and woman gives life to the world. Each role carries exclusive privileges. Therefore there is no room for thing that one sex is superior to the other.
When my husband and I married over 20 years ago…wow! We chose Swan’s to be our theme for our wedding and reason being is because they mate for Life, it was a good symbol of love dedication and trust. Their dedication to each other is what I believe God intended for man and woman.
When my husband used to run Marathon’s he would take long runs and if he saw Swans especially if they had babies we would take a drive so that he could show them to me. I know it seems a little silly but moments like these are those that I cherish and continue to enjoy even today. Coffee and a kiss in the morning to start my day is another little thing I cherish. Lights left on at night when I am returning home from a late day…the list goes on. It is the little blessings that touch each other’s souls that make us one with our partners. God calls to love in the little everyday things and to count the blessings our spouses bestow upon us.
If you are looking for a quick easy project to tell your spouse how much you love him/her; here is a quick picture of what I did for my valentine. A few cute stickers and some pictures twine and clothes pins will do. It’s really fun to see how much we have changed over the years. A great way to show our hearts and lives together as God intends!
