Day 2: God and Creation

While I'm sure creating the Earth wasn't "hard" for God, trying to sew down tiny bits of green felt onto a blue circle was a bit trix-y for me.  Thankfully when I was done, Little Miss was able to recognize that I had "made the earth" immediately.  And after she made me try to point out where we live on this 2" representation of our planet, she wanted to know what other colors besides green we live on.  ??  Kids kill me sometimes.

FYI: I'm going to be sharing the NIV translation of the relevant verses of the day on these blog posts, but wherever possible, Mr. Skooks and I will probably read to the kids the relevant passages out of the Bible translation they use regularly: The Jesus Storybook Bible.  For those of you in the market for a great children's Bible that will truly bring all of the stories into sharp Jesus focus in a way that anyone will understand, I highly recommend it.

Genesis 1:26:31

Genesis 1:26-31

    26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
 27 So God created mankind in his own image,
   in the image of God he created them;
   male and female he created them.
 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
    29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
    31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
