Wild Flowers



     The white daisy grows wild in abundance and many times you see them along the road.  They have a very firm yellow center and long stems and the children would weave them together into a circle. 















     They make wonderful bouquets because they last so long and the white goes with everything.  They were planted in the flowerbed by the garden and have been coming up every year.  Just the fresh new leaves make a nice border of deep green.














     We do not know the name of this flower but it looks like a type of honeysuckle.




















   "Our Saviour is the restorer of the moral image of God in man. He has supplied in the natural world remedies for the ills of man, that His followers may have life and that they may have it more abundantly. We can with safety discard the concoctions which man has used in the past.   

     The Lord has provided antidotes for diseases in simple plants, and these can be used by faith, with no denial of faith; for by using the blessings provided by God for our benefit we are cooperating with Him. He can use water and sunshine and the herbs which He has caused to grow, in healing maladies brought on by indiscretion or accident. We do not manifest a lack of faith when we ask God to bless His remedies. True faith will thank God for the knowledge of how to use these precious blessings in a way which will restore mental and physical vigor.   

     The body is to be carefully cared for, and in this the Lord demands the cooperation of the human agent. Man must become intelligent in regard to the treatment and use of brain, bone, and muscle. The very best experience we can gain is to know ourselves."
