God Created Woman
By the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working
overtime. An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this
And the Lord answered, "Have you seen the spec sheet on her? She has to be
completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all
replaceable, run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four
children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to
a broken heart and have two pairs of hands."
The angel was astounded at the requirements. "Two pairs of hands! No way! And
that's just on the standard model? That's too much work for one day. Wait until
tomorrow to finish."
But I can't," the Lord protested. "I am so close to finishing this creation that
is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can
work 18 hour days."
The angel moved closer and touched the woman. "But you have made her so soft,
"She is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no
idea what she can endure or accomplish."
"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.
The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to
reason and negotiate."
The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were
trying to put too much into this one."
"That's not a leak," the Lord corrected, "that's a tear!" "What's the tear for?"
the angel asked.
The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain,
her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride." The
angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything! Woman
is truly amazing."
And she is! Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they
carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want
to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and
laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up
to injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a
better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor
with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their
children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they
hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They
grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there
is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can help to heal a broken
heart. Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes. They'll drive, fly,
walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a
woman is what makes the world keep turning! They bring joy and hope. They have
compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
