Befriending Plants: Heal All

Written By: Holly Drake  |  Posted: Sunday, August 5th, 2018

I had been busy, too busy to choose a plant to teach on for my Befriending Plants class. There are so many plants that I treasure and want to introduce others to in a more memorable way.

The day of my class, I got up early to hike to the white rock overlooking the valley. It is my favorite place to watch the sunrise. As I sat there asking for guidance the sun's first rays bore a hole in the hills on the horizon and instantly the pasture surrounding me sparkled with glowing gems of dew illuminated with the light. I thought of the verse "The sun of Righteousness will come with healing in His wings". Now with the sun's light illuminating my ability to read, I opened my Bible to Luke chapter 1 looking for the words Zacharias uttered when his baby boy, John the Baptist, was born, "And you, child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; For you will go on before the Lord (the Messiah) to prepare His ways; to give His people the knowledge of salvation by the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, with which the Sunrise (the Messiah) from on high will dawn and visit us, to shine upon those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death. TO guide our feet into the way of peace."
