“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all. (Emily Dickinson)
Genesis, chapter 1.
In the beginning,
when God created the heavens and the earth,
the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep.
The breath/wind/spirit of God was hovering over the waters,
when God spoke the words of creation.
- Matthew 3:13 - 17
