                                                      Creation: Light

                                             Adapted by: M.R. Anglin

                              -Where there was nothing, in the beginning, He was.




     Out of the emptiness, where nothing else existed, one word echoed out of the mouth of God: “Be.”

     And there was.

     A blank circle, formless and void, materialized into the black expanse of space. A world, plucked out of nothing, began to exist.

    This world was covered in water--no land in sight anywhere--and darkness covered the surface of the deep, making the water so black that only the eyes of God could penetrate it.

     And the Spirit of God hovered over the waters.

     A new command reached into the darkness:

                                                                     “Let there be . . .

                                                                                               light.”

     And there was.

     Without sun nor stars nor moon to generate it, light appeared--glorious light to shine on the waters; magnificent light to sparkle on the endless ocean; brilliant light to dispel the darkness.  

     God looked at the light and saw that it was good.

     The darkness, though displaced, was not killed. And God gave a place to it, forever separating it from the light. In doing so, He bestowed honor on what He had created--God himself named the light and the darkness.

     To the light, He gave the name “day.”

     To the darkness, He gave the name “night.”

     The evening passed, the night, and then the morning.

     Thus, elapsed the first day.

I got really inspired by something the pastor said in church tonight. (Yes, I go to church on Fridays--no early morning Sunday for me ^^).


This was the result.

I would have loved to draw a picture for this, but there is no way I could do justice to the image flying around in my head.

Critique Encouraged. This was done in a few hours, so there's bound to be some errors.

If I get inspired enough, I may do the other five days.

EDIT: revised the first line to cut down on confusion. EVIL confusion!!!!

I just read this now! I like it muchly. You could so totally novelize the Bible but that would probably take ages... or not.

One thing I also really enjoy here is not only the content, but the spacing of the paragraphs and lines. It's a concept that's important in both visual art and text. The positive and negative spaces are just as important because they are constantly interacting. If it had been smooshed all together into a big ol' block of writing, it wouldn't have been as interesting.

you know where I got that idea that spacing is important? The DA submission page! Where it says, "You may use spacing and indentation in order to generate a particular effect."

Isn't that odd? But it makes sense.

I thought that may have been confusing . . . that's why I put that quote on the top, right under the title. hmm . . . but maybe a bit of revising is in order.
