January drabbles - 31

Just to get you in the mood for February...

God made light in a dull gray sky, so they say. He made rain drip from weary clouds, then plants that grew till the dusty heavens turned blue. Next came moon and stars and sun, and life on earth begun. Fish filled the sea and birds spilled upwards, swimming into sky. Finally animals crawled on land; dinosaurs, mammals, and man.

They tell me man was the final thing he made, but I think perhaps God was saving the best till last. When everything else was finished, and there was a world of cleaning to do, then God made woman too.
