God looked at everything he had made, and he was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came—that was the sixth day.(Genesis 1:31) Good News Translation
The first day of creation included development of cellular and multicellular life which was capable of photosynthesis. This may seem far-fetched but it’s in harmony with scientific theories of the origin of life.

So they went on, and fifty of the prophets followed them to the Jordan. Elijah and Elisha stopped by the river, and the fifty prophets stood a short distance away. Then Elijah took off his cloak, rolled it up, and struck the water with it; the water divided, and he and Elisha crossed to the other side on dry ground.(2 Kings 2:6b-8) Good news Translation

Your mother was like a grapevine(Ezekiel 19:10) Good news Translation
planted near a stream.
Because there was plenty of water,
the vine was covered with leaves and fruit.
Chlorophyll captures the energy from sunlight in a process called photosynthesis and produces Hydrogen (H+). It’s a picture of the command that God gave to begin the process of forming organic life: let light be.

And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering made by fire unto the LORD; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away.(Leviticus 3:3-4) KJV
Membranes allow the rapid development of complexity. They form cellular and subcellular structures that carry out metabolic functions allowing biological life to develop, grow and reproduce.
