Jonathan Alan Peterson

and the Story of Noah's Ark

 To my special Godchild, with love, from

Auntie Marissa

May God Bless You Always!

 

     One day Jonathan Alan Peterson, age 6, sat watching the rain fall outside his bedroom in Tampa, Florida.  Since he had to stay inside, Jonathandecided to play his favorite game, land of make-believe.  Mommy, Daddy, and Alayna loved to play make-believe, too.

 

     Today he decided to pretend to be one of his favorite Bible characters, Noah.

 

     Jonathan remembered the wonderful story of Noah's Ark and imagined himself being there instead of Noah.  Jonathan closed his eyes really tightly and then ...ZOOM... he was in another land long, long ago with Mommy, Daddy, and Alayna.

 

     Most of the people in this new place seemed to be mean and hateful.  They were being selfish and greedy and they were fighting in the street.

 

     Suddenly, God was talking.  The Lord told Jonathan. He was going to cause a flood over the earth because of all the bad people.  But Jonathan, along with Mommy, Daddy, and Alayna would be safe if they built a huge boat, called an Ark.

 

     Big elephants helped Jonathan collect wood to make the Ark.

 

     Jonathan built the ark just as the Lord commanded.  It was covered with tar, called pitch, to make it waterproof. 

 

     Other animals helped to make the ark by carrying buckets of the pitch.  Even when Jonathan finished building the ark, there was still more work to do.

 

     Then Jonathan and his family collected all the food and supplies they would need on the ark.  They gathered sacks and baskets of apples, melons, hay, grain and everything else they needed.

 

     When the work was done, God sent his animals two-by-two, a boy and a girl of each kind, so they could be saved from the flood.

 

     Jonathan put the animals on the ark just as God wanted.  Giraffes, lions, rabbits, raccoons, penguins and many other creatures walked up the steps to the ark.

 

     Then Jonathan , along with Mommy, Daddy, and Alayna, got on the ark too.  When everyone was safely aboard, God shut the door.

 

     It rained for 40 days and nights without stopping. 

 

     Sometimes Jonathan was a little frightened, but he knew that everyone would be safe in God's ark.

 

     The storm continued to rage on and on.  The sky stayed gloomy and scary while the flood covered the earth.  All the cities and towns were now under water.

 

     Finally the rain stopped and the waters became calm.  The ark came to rest on top of Mount Ararat. 

 

     Jonathan , along with Mommy, Daddy, and Alayna felt excited to see blue skies and the sun chining again.  Then God caused a wind to blow over the earth, which began to dry up the water.

 

     A while later, Jonathan sent out a dove three different times to see if the ground was dry.  The first time the dove could not find a place to rest and came back.  The second time it came back with a fresh olive leaf.  That meant the ground was almost dry.  The third time the dove didn't return at all.  The earth was dry! 

 

     At last God told Jonathan along with Mommy, Daddy, and Alayna to come out of the ark. 

 

     God promised never to destroy the earth with water again.   He sent a rainbow to remind everyone of his promise.

 

     Just then Jonathan opened his eyes and noticed the rain outside his bedroom had stopped.  

 

     In the sky was God's beautiful rainbow, reminding him of God's promise long ago.
