"And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day" (Genesis 1:31)
(Wild Rose (Rosa Rugosa) - 05a) The leaves of the wild rugosa rose are pinnate, meaning that each leaf has several leaflets growing opposite one another and has one terminal leaflet. The length of the leaves can be from a little over 3 inches long to up to 6 inches long (8–15 cm) with 5–9 ovate leaflets, most often 7. Each leaflet is about 1-1/2 inches (3–4 cm) long. The leaf in this photo has 7 leaflets, the inner two of which are partly hidden under the flower. The rugosa rose leaflets have a toothed margin or edge with a distinctly corrugated (rugose, hence the species' name) surface.

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.
