An Eleven-year-old Who Gets It!

by Ken Ham on January 25, 2013

Kayla is 11 years old. She sent me the wonderful poem below. How we need a whole generation of young people like Kayla! What a refreshing change to see a young girl write about the truth of God’s Word instead of the anti-biblical beliefs permeating this nation from the White House down.

“Seven Days of Creation” By KH, 11 years old

Oh, what a sight When God created light. He called the light day And the darkness night. He separated darkness From light as you know. God saw that it was good. And this is not just a show.

What did God do On day number two? I’ll give you a hint, I’ll give you a clue. Sometimes it’s black And sometimes it’s blue. It’s heaven or sky, Remember the clue?

What would it be like Without fruit, trees, or plants? Just try to imagine it. I bet you can’t. If God hadn’t created Land on the third day You’d always be floating Or swimming. No way!

Three days have passed And there still are more. And right now it is Day number four. When God creates Very wonderful lights. Like stars, sun, and moon For thousands of nights.

This is what The fifth day features: Sea animals and Flying creatures. He made all those Creatures on that day. And that is all I have to say.

Now the sixth day Is very neat. So how about We have a seat. He made animals of land And formed man by His hand. Out of dust man came And soon you will find out his name.

It’s day number seven And our week is done. Watching God create Was really fun. Now it’s time for God to rest. Which day did You like the best?

Thanks Kayla—may God richly bless you as you stand for Him.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,

Ken
