Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) - 04
(Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) - 04) The common dandelion is probably the most maligned, by adults, of all wild flowers, because of its proliferation in people's lawns as an unwanted weed.   Yet, as small children, we recognized its beauty and picked them for our mothers as a loving gift.  This difference in our perspective is a reminder of the Biblical passage in Matthew 18:1-4, where the disciples came to Jesus and asked Him "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"  And calling a child to Himself as an example of the simplicity of faith and humbleness of spirit, He said, "Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."   May we all regain and never again lose the child in us that truly recognized the beauty in all of God's creation.

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.
