In the Beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Beforewhat we see now there was nothing.
The whole universe was empty and dark. And before that, therewas no universe at all… until the Father dreamed adream.
Max Lucado's story tells of a fictional conversation between thearchangel Michael and God. In the story Max creatively describeshow God dreamed of mountains, waterfalls and oceans, pretty flowersand towering trees, but He didn't stop there. The Father dreamed ofcreepy, crawly creatures and majestic, monstrous animals. Hedreamed of every single living thing and created them all, but eventhen He didn't stop. Not yet.
Even after all this, the Father had one more thing to create,the most important thing of all. So He reached into His own heartand pulled out little pieces of His beautiful self and shaped theminto His children. He created you and me and made us in His image.And He said it was good.
