“God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him.” John 1:3
We make things from something: paper, and glue, and wood.
God made things out of nothing! Just because He could!
God made things above our heads: the sun, the moon, the stars!
The clouds are all his wonderful work and He said it was good.
He made the galaxies miles beyond and chose where they would stay.
He put Saturn in its place and gave us the Milky Way.
He made Jupitar, Pluto and Mars and gave them a proper place.
He told the North Star where to stand and gave the moon its face!
The oceans knew just where to stay when God spoke out so strong.
Sea animals knew their mates and earth animals found their home.
Mountains and valleys took their spot when God spoke out to them.
Rivers and waterfalls rushed with delight and whirlpools began to spin!
Covering hillsides, flowers appeared; lifting their heads unafraid.
Caverns and caves hid their treasures and geysers spurted their praise.
God looked at the world He created and said all was good He had done.
Last, but not least, God made people but said we were very good!
A fun fact: God is always in a good mood when He sees you and me because He love us.
