This year I am writing the story of Christmas for the one and five year old boys that I watch. They get so excited to read each day! Here is a little glimpse into how I’m telling the story. Hope you enjoy it. -Natasha
In the beginning, I mean, the very, very beginning, there was nothing.
No sun. No moon. No stars.
No animals. No plants. No people.
There was only one thing that existed.
One single thing.
He was before the beginning, during the beginning and he will be after the end.
That’s just how God is.
And in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
And it was dark.
But God spoke!
Really great things happen when God speaks.
He said, “Let there be light!”
and there was.
He made the light “day” and the dark “night”. And he said it was good!
Day by day passed and he made a lot of good things.
He made the sky and the seas and all kinds of plants. He made the sun and moon and stars. He made all the fish and birds and animals.
Then God did something very, very special.
He took the dust of the ground and formed a man.
Then he breathed into the man the breath of LIFE.
Do you know what was so special about this man?
He was made in the image of God.
The only thing in all creation.
Because he was made to be God’s friend.
