God Created Man In His Own Image

Good Morning to everyone. I would like to look at two verses from the book of Genesis, the first verse is Genesis 1:1-2a, which reads

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep.

The second verse is Genesis 1:26-27, which reads

26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

I'm not a rocket scientist but I know what I know and that is that God himself created the heavens and the earth, along with man in his own image. I also believe that God stretched his great big arms around in a circle and found that it was empty, there was nothing in it no one to talk to or no one to help in times of trouble. This is why God created the heavens and the earth, along with man. Lets look at man for a minute, when Adam was created, he was the only person on the earth at the time. God new that it was not good for Adam to be alone, so he created Eve in his image, and they both communicated with God on a daily basis, by having communion with his creation God was not alone any more. God's image is one that he needs to be loved and respected with everything that he does or doesn't do, he also needs to have the communication from mankind, just like us humans need communication from other humans. We also need the communication that we have with God because of the shed blood of his son Jesus Christ, and I thank God for everything that he has done and will do down the road from now.
