START BLOOMING! Just a flick of a finger now, and the Creator watched in joy as a few tender shoots made their coy appearance. A brush of his hand across the globe, while He sang the names of colors: Crimson, magenta, lavender, mauve. Red roses bent their heads in adoration; pink primroses scented the air with praise.
START SHINING! This time, the Creator looked away from His now-lush creation, and pointed into the firmament. There, He said, and there and there and there. His arm swept across the heavens—a grand gesture. Sun, moon, and planets danced for Him; comets and stars joined the celebration.
START FLYING! START SWIMMING! START GALLOPING, CRAWLING, AND HOPPING! Obedient to their Creator, four-legged beasts and two-legged birds moved in response to His command. He laughed now with delight at His ridiculous platypus, His gawky giraffe, His comical chimpanzee. START CHIRPING! START BRAYING! START WHINNYING, BARKING, AND ROARING! The creatures tested their voices, and called out in wonder to their King.
START KNOWING! The Creator breathed, and His most precious creation knew Him.
Oh, how I long for you to know Me more!
