What is a Day?

A bit of Hebrew for those that love to learn, or are teaching children or even have been put in the time and place to bring light to God’s Word.
What did God mean when he told us the world was created in 6 days? Was He being literal, did he ACTUALLY mean the word day like you and I understand it? According to Strongs this is the Hebrew word that says day

yōm  י֥וֹם

Day is defined by evening and morning
The word yom relates to the passing of light and dark.

5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.
And there was evening and there was morning, one day.

8 And God called the firmament Heaven.
And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.

13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

23 And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.
And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

I feel confident that the LORD God, Creator meant day as in the earth spins around
we get light and dark, day and night – a day.
I used to love evolution, it was fun to consider all the possibilities of the passage of time, but as I learned more about God’s Word, I have come to see that He has had a plan from the beginning, when I take away from His plan, trying to order it by things my hands can touch, I lose the power and importance of being here now as His creation.
