In the Beginning

woman was created to give joy to the human race. There is no question about it, but Adam was sad before Eve was created. He looked about him at everything else that had been created, and there was no one with whom he could share his thoughts, with whom he could share the rest of creation, with whom he could love, and talk, and sing, and laugh, etc. So God created a special creature, a woman, to be a companion and a gift. And what was Adam's reaction--it was great joy. He said, "At last, this is bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh!" In the very beginning, woman was made for joy, for the giving of joy, for the channeling of joy, for living in joy.
