Mother of All Living

And all that God made was good

Except it was not good that man be alone

So God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man

 

And took from him a rib

And fashioned from that rib a woman

 

How long did that take

To prepare a wife for his creation

How long was his creation asleep

 

He slept until the woman

Was brought to him

To be his wife

Then everything was good

 

It is like Christ and his bride

That which has been prepared for him

A house in which all his children live

The mother of all living

Mother of All Living

She is the mother

Of all living

But has never been born

 

She is the source

Of everyone

Who has ever lived

 

We can all trace our line

Back to our mother

And our father

In the garden

These two are one

 

She is never without

Her master, her lord,

Her husband

Always by his side

There cannot be

One without the other

 

So that which has never been born

Has given birth to all living

But she has no life of her own

 

She takes on the form of all living

The form and the formless

She and her husband

 

Genesis 2:18

“…It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.”
