Here is an (edited for length) excerpt from a book I am reading called Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge. I thought it would be inspiring to share with my fellow beautiful ladies here in the blogosphere.
"It is nearing the end of the sixth day, the end of the Creator's great labor, as Adam steps forth, the image of God, the triumph of His work. Nothing in creation even comes close... And yet, the Master says that something is not good, not right... and that something is Eve. She is the crescendo, the final, astonishing work of God. Woman.
In one last flourish creation comes to a finish not with Adam, but with Eve.
She is the Master's finishing touch. Given the way creation unfolds, how it builds to ever higher and higher works of art, can there be any doubt that Eve is the crown of creation? Not an afterthought. Not a nice addition like an ornament on a tree. She is God's final touch, his piece de resistance. She fills a place in the world nothing and no one else can fill. Step to a window, ladies. Look out across the earth and say to yourselves, "The whole, vast world is incomplete without me. Creation reached it's zenith in me."
