, there was nothing.Nothing to hear. Nothing to feel. Nothing to see.Only emptiness. And darkness. And . . . nothing butnothing.But God was there. And God had a wonderful Plan.
“I’ll take this emptiness,” God said, “and I’ll ll it up!Out of the darkness, I’m going to make light! And out of  the nothing, I’m going to make . . . EVERYTHING!”Like a mommy bird utters her wings over her eggs tohelp her babies hatch, God hovered over the deep, silent
