So, it’s funny what people wake up thinking about at 3 am. I couldn’t get back to sleep until I wrote what I was imagining…what it may have been like when God surprised Adam with a wife. There's also a surprise ending to this blog that involves you.

As God walked in Eden in the cool of the day with Earth’s first man, they may have chatted about the vast array of animals in the garden. It was a huge honor Adam was given—to name all the animals. I wonder if he asked God about the obvious fact that all the animals had a mate except him? Was there an aching awareness that something vital was missing? Is that when God turned to Adam and said, “I have a surprise for you, Son. Close your eyes."

How long those eyes were closed is not recorded, but we are told God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man. As he slept, God removed one of his ribs. God didn’t take a bone from his feet to create a woman to be walked on. The bone wasn’t from Adam’s head so she would be above him, but beside his heart, where she would be close to his side to be loved and cherished.

God’s surgery must have been amazing. He closed up the flesh from Adam’s wound, and used the rib to create a woman. I know. That is far beyond our comprehension. However, if the Bible says the One who created the Heavens and the Earth and holds everything together by the Word of His power created a woman from a rib, I have no doubt that’s exactly what happened.

God must have had great joy creating Eve. She was the crowning jewel of His creation. I can just imagine the excitement He had as He invited Adam to open his eyes. Adam knew instantly who this beautiful creature was. I wonder if he cried as he said, “This is now bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called woman because she was taken out of man.” I can imagine God’s joy as He said, “Therefore shall a man leave his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh...” Such a beautiful surprise for Adam. Earth's first wedding.

It's interesting the Bible opens with a wedding...and closes with a wedding. Did you know you are invited to that final wedding? "Let's rejoice and be exceedingly glad, and let's give the glory to Him, for the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready." (Revelation 19:7) Can you imagine how beautiful it will be when the King of kings and the Lord of lords marries His beloved? Do you want to hear something even more amazing? YOU are invited to be that beautiful bride. I don't understand it could millions of people be a bride? I don't know...but again, if the one who breathed life into the first man and created a woman from his rib says it will happen, I believe it. The rest is just details. Blessings, Beloved.
