Dedicated to the Preservation and Restoration of the Whole of Creation: Humans - Animals - Environment
"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 Sarsaparilla (Aralia nudicaulis) - 15) When clustered together, as in this photo, wild sarsaparilla are hard to identify individually, but because of their unique appearance, they are relatively easy to distinguish from other plants growing in the woods. Wild sarsaparilla are members of the Ginseng (Araliaceae) family, which is the reason for the scientific name, Aralia. The other part of the scientific name, nudicaulis, comes from the Latin nudus, meaning "bare" or naked", and the Greek kaulos, meaning "stem" or "bare stem".

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.
