Genesis 1:14-19 (NLT)
14 Then God said, “Let great lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them mark off the seasons, days, and years. 15 Let these lights in the sky shine down on the earth.” And that is what happened. 16 God made two great lights, the sun and the moon—the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, 18 to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And evening passed and morning came, marking the fourth day.
TIME OF DAY:
None – except God!
I “drew” this scene as an addition to the web site composite graphic that appears on the front/home page. It is not my usual hand drawn ink outline. It is, in fact, a photograph of the Eagle Nebulae & then modified in PhotoPaint. I added the photo to an A4 background & drew / replicated the gaseous background, adding stars & finally the Earth & Moon. I wanted to show the grandeur of God’s creative nature. The idea to show a towering nebulae, dwarfing the Earth & Moon originally came in response to the reading on June 30th 2009 in “The One Year Bible”, Psalm 148:13 “Let them all praise the name of the Lord. For His name is very great; His glory towers over the Earth & heavens!”
