And by the power of His word, He spun layer upon layer of fresh, clean air around the earth, wrapping it in every shade of blue. And He continued until the sky was just right, and the air was perfectly delicious!
Then God poured out waters all over the earth. Rushing and gushing, the mighty waters covered the world! He made them flow pure and clean and clear.
Then God divided this gigantic body of water by forming huge mountains and wide valleys, rolling hills, and smooth, flat plains.
The water gathered into clear, sparkling pools and deep blue lakes. And before long, fast-flowing rivers and bubbling streams rushed across the land to greet the mighty oceans.
