      I like medicinal plants as they are natural and made from God. He has hidden so many secrets on our earth, for all those bold enough to search, after all his mind is so unfathomable. What secret has he left for us, that tells us about Him, his mind, thoughts, beauty. We have much to learn about He who is so Great.
