WHEN GOD CREATED
The angels didn't understand what God planned. He held up his hand and patiently replied, smiling wide, "Trust me. Soon you'll see. Have I ever lied to thee? Have I ever kept thou in the dark?"
"In the what?" the cherubs remarked. "What's this thing that you call dark?"
God nodded. "Just wait. When the time is right all I've said will come to light..."
"To what?" a mother angel cried.
God laughed and then He said with pride, "I must be careful what I say. I'm using words I just created on this day. Like dark and light, day and night, black and white, early, late, just you wait..." God was amused. They were all so confused. And then He said. "I have another inspiration. I will give you all the benefit of my creation."
Again God waved his hand and vowed, "Now you understand the words I use and what they mean so it is time I set the scene." God pointed here and there and everywhere, "See, the grass is green..."
They all repeated, knowingly, "The grass is green."
"Right," said God, "the snow is white, the night is dark, the day is light, meet my little friend the pig, and here's the horse, of course..."
"Gosh, the horse is big," they giggled as it swished its tail and wiggled its nose.
"And now meet my friend, the elephant and his tiny fiend the ant. One is big, the other's small. But they are brothers, after all."
The folks in Heaven understood as He knew they would. And as God went on creating, elating old and young, they looked in awe at what they saw and they knew what God was trying to do."
Finally, God sat down on a cloud and He said, "Whew! I'm through. Now children, tell me true, what did I teach you?"
And they all shouted with joy and mirth, "God has just created Earth and sky and we know why. He created all the birds that fly. And by and by, so many things He will create and we'll know why. God created us and so we know. If He says it's so, it's so."
It was the sixth day of God's chore. God had so much fun doing what He'd done and He and They knew there'd be more. For He and They knew what God was for.
An angel shushed, "Now I don't want to hear a peep. God's done His work, let Him sleep."
They all crept away as God slept at the end of day, humming their song as they walked along, "God is good, God is great, only God can create." And as they faded out of sight, God awoke and winked his eye and said, "You bet! They ain't seen nothing yet!"
