Wild Rose (Rosa carolina L. ) - 03
(Wild Rose (Rosa carolina L. ) - 03) We have observed that this type of wild rose bush has relatively few blooms (when compared to the smaller varieties) and that the flowers wither quickly.  There are also very few perfectly formed flowers, which is evident in this photo; nevertheless, they are beautiful and fragrant.  This is all part of the pleasure of exploring and preserving the wonders of God's creation.  It is also a reminder that none of us are "perfect", either, but that we can strive for that perfection.  As Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:48, "Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."; and in this perfection we will do no harm to each other, or to the animals, or to the environment.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
