Genesis 1:
6-8 God spoke: “Sky! In the middle of the waters;
        separate water from water!”
    God made sky.
    He separated the water under sky
        from the water above sky.
    And there it was:
        he named sky the Heavens;
    It was evening, it was morning—
    Day Two.

And thus the atmosphere to support earth’s life is born. The building blocks of water above and water below create an eco-system that refreshes and replenishes the blue planet.

Mary’s water would break as Heaven’s child appeared. A child enters the atmosphere He long ago created. The Creator would fill this planetary atmosphere with His omnipresence.

And when Christ fulfilled his earthly life mission, he returned to Heaven with a promise to send the Holy Spirit who would continue to be God’s creative, communicating presence in the hearts of all who listen. The same Spirit that would bring Jesus back from the dead comes to bring us to life. The Spirit changes the atmosphere around us by brooding over us, just as the Spirit had done above the chaotic abyss bringing order and structure.
