All-Creatures Ministry and Web Site
By Mikell Worley - 13 May 2007
Thank you for your wonderful site! Last year I did a sketch of a bull thistle and I am finally getting around to painting it. I thought I would look it up on the internet to find a photo of the colors. Many sites don't even include this exquisite flower - just the leaves and the labels - weed, invasive, etc. I find beauty in all creatures and find it difficult to find people who share my opinion. Judging by your site, it should be easy. You've had a lot of visitors!
I work with young people and the homeless and I use the "weed" analogy when working with them. I always tell them that:
"A weed is a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered." I heard it years ago - when I finish my painting I'll get back to your web site and see if I can find it in your list of quotes.
Thank you for your respect for all of God's gifts! How refreshing!
Best wishes and blessings,
Ms. Mikell (pronounced Michael) Worley
