A long, long time ago, before there were blue skies, chirping birds, or even a single flower, there was just darkness and emptiness everywhere. But God had a big plan!
On the first day, God said, “Let there be light!” And suddenly, there was a bright, warm light that pushed away the darkness. God looked at the light and said, “This is good!” He called the light “Day” and the darkness “Night.”
On the second day, God wanted to separate the waters. So, he said, “Let there be a sky!” And just like that, a beautiful blue sky appeared, separating the waters above from the waters below.
On the third day, God spoke again, “Let the waters below the sky come together, and let dry ground appear!” Land popped up from the waters, and God called it “Earth.” Then, God wanted something colorful on the land, so he said, “Let the earth grow plants and trees with fruits!” And the Earth was soon covered with green grass, tall trees, and lovely flowers.
On the fourth day, God thought the day and night should have some lights. So, he said, “Let there be lights in the sky!” And the sun began to shine brightly during the day, while the moon and stars twinkled at night.
On the fifth day, God said, “Let the waters be filled with fish, and let birds fly in the sky!” Soon, colorful fish started swimming in the waters, and birds with beautiful feathers began to soar in the sky.
On the sixth day, God had another idea, “Let there be animals on the land!” All sorts of animals appeared: lions, elephants, rabbits, and so many more. Then, God thought of creating someone special, someone who looked a bit like Him. So, he created the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and told them, “Take care of this beautiful world I’ve made.”
Finally, on the seventh day, God looked around and saw everything he had made. He was very happy with his work. So, on that day, he decided to rest and enjoy it. He called this day “Sabbath,” a special day of rest.
And that, dear children, is how the world around us was created. All in just seven amazing days!
