Are there two creation stories? They don’t seem to line up!

There ARE two creation stories in the book of Genesis. The first begins with breath over the waters and a command for light. Then come the plants, then animals, then humans.  In the second, God makes a person – a ‘mud-guy’ first and then builds up a creation around him. Wow, what a different perspective each gives us. Both stories are needed to hold the fullness of God’s plan… the perfect balance revealed in the first story and the role of humans in the second.
