At Last!

Then the lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.  “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’”   Genesis 2:22-23

I think more people quote the end of Genesis 2:23 than the beginning.  But those two words at the beginning are golden: At last!

Adam had just gone through the circumstance (trial?) of naming every other animal and realizing that none of them were for him.  When he was finally shown the being that was a perfect match for him...

At last!

I've thought the same thing about my lovely wife.  And I hope if you're married you've thought that about your spouse.

One more thought:  "At last!" means the search is over.  He or she has been found and is the one for you.
