Early Dawn

Early dawn outlines the hills
like stitches on clothing
    or sketches on clay.
Job 38:14 CEV

These are words from God to Job.
He asked Job why he talked so much.
He asked if Job was there when the foundations of the earth were placed and the oceans were given boundaries.
He asked if the sun obeyed Job's commands and then proceeded to give this beautiful description of a sunrise.
Here God is presented, not only as the Creator, but also as the Great Poet.  He knows what is involved in the making of clothing and ceramics and I like the fact that He used these examples for us who also try to "create."
