The Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while
he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed
up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the
rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh
of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was
taken out of man.”
We were created in the image of the Triune God (Father, Son
and Holy Spirit) we are triune creatures we are Spirit, Soul
We were created perfect, because God is perfect
We were created to be in relationship with God because we are Spirit
and need relationship with a Spirit God.

God of creation, forgive our moments of ingratitude from appreciating
the wonder that is this world, the endless cycle of nature, of life
and death and rebirth.
Forgive us for taking without giving, reaping without sowing.
