(Wild Rose, Small Pink Rambling - 06) In our ministry to help make this a more sensitive, loving and compassionate world, we also encounter the most horribly cruel and inhumane treatment of animals that anyone could imagine. The torture, pain, suffering and death that occurs every day in the animal agriculture industry, particularly on factory farms and in slaughterhouses, can drive a sensitive person into a deep depression, if it were not for these times when we can stop and "smell the roses", and come to realize that our efforts are not in vain, and that we must continue our peaceful endeavors. These are the thankful and quiet times when we can rest in the Lord, and then go forth refreshed. It's very much like going forth with the assurance that the buds will open to reveal more roses, but unlike the roses which wither, the Lord and His encouragement is always present.
