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)
(Water Hemlock or Spotted Cowbane (Cicuta maculata) - 01) We spotted these water hemlock growing in a semi-wet area off the side of the road. Water hemlock can grow to heights of three to six feet and usually grow in wet or damp fields or in swamps. They are members of the Parsley family, Umbelliferae, or Carrot family, Apiaceae, depending on the reference consulted; but unlike the parsley and carrots we eat, this relative of the poison hemlock is probably the most poisonous plant in the United States.

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.
