And Things Began to Grow

Genesis 1:11-13 -- Send Unlimited Cards 

God made the earth's soil rich and good, and ready to grow. "Let the land produce!" commanded God.

And the earth burst into a garden of life! Plants of all kinds began to spring forth from the warm brown soil. Tender shoots sprouted up from the ground to form fruit trees. Fragile green vegetable seedlings emerged, and soon tightly closed flower buds and blossoms appeared on slender stems.

Soon the fruit trees grew big and strong.

Their roots dug deep into the soil, and their branches hung heavy with sweet-smelling fruit. Tall, majestic evergreens stretched toward the sky, reaching their limbs up to heaven.

Luscious green grasses grew, and fragrant flowers bloomed in every color. And their precious seeds were caught by the winds and scattered far and wide. God painted the earth in breathtaking and colorful beauty. And it was so good!
