No. 19 - Aloe

I wonder who first discovered that aloe had healing purpose. I mean I think it's phenomenal that a plant that looks semi-like a cactus and semi-like a weed can soothe and heal. For some reason when I think of this, I think of 1 Corinthians 1:27, "But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." Or I think of the over-used saying: "Don't judge a book by its cover." Cause once you find out what is inside, that's when true beauty and purpose are revealed.
