I came back from my usual weekend in Baguio and when I opened the apartment unit, it was a disaster! I knew it, my brother is so back! :D
Those who know me well also know how organized I am and how I always want to keep things in order. In short, I hate mess. But now that I am no longer alone (Yey!), I have to deal with it again. My brother asked, "don't you miss it?" I answered, "No!"
But when I decided to calm down and pray about it, the Lord reminded me of a very powerful weekend retreat in SFC, the Princess Diaries. :) The first session talks about the core designs of a woman: a mystery to be revealed, a relationship to be pursued, and a beauty to be unveiled. Both man and woman are created in the image and likeness of God, but the woman is considered as the crown of creation. Why? Because the Lord created everything in a rising crescendo, in ascending order of beauty, finishing it with beauty to cap all beauty - a woman (blessed to be one!).
I found somewhere in the internet ten (10) reasons why God created Eve. I always share them during my PD talks but let me list them down here too:
10. God worried that Adam would always be lost in the garden because He knew men would never ask for directions. (Agree? Agree! Well, not all. But most. :D)
9. God knew that Adam would one day need someone to hand him the TV remote because men don't want to see what is on TV; they want to see WHAT ELSE is on TV. (They are never contented. Hard to please? Or simply a player? )
8. God knew that Adam would never buy a new fig leaf when the seat wore out and therefore would need Eve to get one for him. (Either kuripot or tamad. O sige na nga, pwedeng busy lang din.)
7. God knew that Adam would never make a doctor's appointment for himself. (So true! My father is the perfect example.)
6. God knew that Adam would never remember which night was garbage night. (They need to be reminded every now and then.)
5. God knew that if the world was to be populated there would have to be someone to bear children because men would never be able to handle it. (I couldn't even imagine them bearing a child.)
4. As Keeper of the Garden, Adam would never remember where he put his tools. (Right on!)
3. The Scripture account of creation indicates that Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the garden. (Read Genesis 3:11-12)
2. As the Bible says, "It is not good for man to be alone." he only ends up getting himself in trouble. (Oh, trouble, trouble!)
1. When God finished the creation of Adam, he stepped back, scratched his head and said, "I can do better than that!" (Alright! Rock and roll! :D)
