Good evening on this Sabbath Eve

In just six days earth hung in space
Light brought forth life to a darkened world
Then God looked at all he had made
Meadows, trees, and little blue flowers, rivers, streams,
oceans and seas
Then God laughed and with His hands
“I’ll make me beasts”
And out of the ground sprang creatures, small and big
Roaming over hills and plains
And it was good!
Then as he stood above the earth
“One more creature I must make”
And this great Father, desiring his children
Took a handful of dust and a scoop of clay shaping them
in his own image, breathing
life into Adam and his wife!

“In six days God made heaven and earth
and on the seventh day he rested from all
he had made!”

Genesis 2:2
