I had stopped dating. Not one guy on the horizon and I was happy. My spiritual growth was off-the-charts and I was becoming a new person while I focused on myself for a bit. The change I saw in myself was good. I could handle waiting for the man God would bring me.
He was the captain of the football team. I was the Varsity cheerleading captain. We were Homecoming King and Queen. We had dated on-and-off for over 7 years, people. Our relationship was one many considered “perfect.”
She is our beginning. The embodiment of the characteristics of God that were too lovely to hap-hazardly toss to Adam and his football-lovin’ buddies. God needed a special creation to handle the fragile emotions of the hurting, who could feel deeply and possess a strong intuition. Someone sensitive enough to empathize with those wounded by war, yet strong enough to cradle a life within their body. His solution was to create a woman. She was made from Adam’s rib and she was entrusted with all the qualities God wanted to express that Adam did not possess.
