Good things take …

                                               … a little longer!

God created the heavens and the earth.

      So God created man in His own image; in the image of God
      He created him; male and female He created them.
      Then God blessed them, and God said to them,
      ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it;
      have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air,
      and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’
      Gen 1 27-28

and afterwards He looked at all that He had done.

      God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.
      Gen 1 31

      Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because
      in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
      Gen 2 3

However it seems – good things take time
… to become all that they were created and meant to be,

      For whom He foreknew,
      He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son,
      Rom 8 29

      For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus
      for good works, which God prepared beforehand
      that we should walk in them.
      Eph 2 10

Allowing creation to grow, develop and receive
… the fullness of His plans and purposes for it
through LOVE.

      Love has been perfected among us in this:
      that we may have boldness in the day of judgment;
      because as He is, so are we in this world.
      1 John 4 17
