Bumble Bee on Begonia

Bumble Bee on Begonia
Bumble Bee on Begonia - For the past several years we have been planting varieties of small begonias in the window boxes on the deck sides of our home. Shortly after we planted our flowers this year, this bumble bee came to investigate the new "goodies" we had set out for her to enjoy. We hope you enjoy her visit as much as we did. So often our fears of the unknown drive us to kill those God-created beings we don't understand. For example, the last thing a bee wants to do is sting us, for when it does, it usually dies. It only stings to protect the hive or its own life. Because I was unthreatening, this bee let me get within a couple of inches to take this photo.

lamb-right lamb-left 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.
