Cohotate Preserve 8 March 2002 Field Trip - 18
(Cohotate Preserve 8 March 2002 Field Trip - 18) We had to do more than simply acknowledge that the water was flowing down the drainage ditch; we had to take a closer look.  While we find beauty in all of nature, we find a special beauty, when we look more closely.  There is beauty in the way the water flows off the stones, as seen in the upper part of the photo.  The falling water first begins to twist and then to "clump" together as a preparation for its break-up, but the fall here is too short.  There is beauty in the way the water flows into the small pool, forming little ripples that cast interesting sunlight and shadow patterns on the sand and gravel at the bottom of the pool.  We should never get so busy that we fail to enjoy the beauty of God's creation, for it brings peace to our mind, soul, and spirit.

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.
