In the beginning the earth was not what it looks like today. It was dark and scary and it was empty. God Almighty wanted to establish a Kingdom for Himself. He wanted to create mankind who will love and serve Him always. So before creating a man He wanted to make everything ready for His loving Creation - The man.
Since there was no light and only darkness prevailed everywhere, He said 'Let there be light' and BOOM there appeared great Brightness!!!! It was water everywhere so He separated the waters horizontally and divided them into the sky and the seas. And then He separated the waters from the dry land too, so that man can live on the dry land. He then decorated the sky with the stars and the moon and the sun. But still the earth looked empty and was not alive. So He created all kinds of shrubs and trees and bushes on the surface of the Earth. He teemed the sky with birds, land with animals and the waters with fishes. Now as everything was ready for man, He was very happy that He has created everything. He made a beautiful garden and called it Eden.
Finally! God took some mud and carefully molded it into the shape of a man. He made him perfectly well. Then He blew His breath into the nostrils of the clay doll and it came to life. God named Him Adam. Adam loved God very much and God also loved Him that He couldn't express.
God would come down from the Heaven every day to spend time with Adam. But God wanted to give Adam a perfect partner, who will always be with him, in His absence, so He put Adam into a deep sleep. Then He took out a rib bone out of Adam and created a 'woman'. When Adam woke up, he saw the woman, she was beautiful. He called her 'Eve'. He loved her very much and she became his best friend.
They were very happy in the garden...
