The evolution of a bean

I have been fascinated this spring with the beans in the garden.  I don't think I have ever just watched them grow.  And these beans grow very quickly.  The other morning I was outside talking to the plants......ummm  looking over the garden and saw sugar snap peas in various stages of growth.  Why yes...I did snap pictures of them. want to see also?   Here goes!!

What beautiful flowers.  I could have a vase of them in my home anytime.  Of course,  then I wouldn't have peas.

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest--

See the tip coming out of the flower?  That is the pea beginning to form inside.  Come on little pea,  grow, grow.
Here you see the pea formed and still protected by the flower.  I know there is an analogy in there somewhere.
The flower has faded,  the leaves are taking over. 

Here at last,  the PEA!  One is almost ready to pick, the other needs a couple of days.  \

My mom and I were talking the other day,  and I believe farmers could be the most content people on earth.  If we go back to Genesis,  this is what God intended for us from the beginning.  Now I am not saying all people should be farmers cause that's what God wants.  But I do find the more I am in the garden,  then more I dwell on God's Amazingness (my word).  There is no one like Him and is works are perfect.

  Ps 103:22  Bless the LORD, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!

If your soul is feeling dry,  if you are not finding ways to Praise and Extol our God,  go out in His creation and worship Him.  Find one flower,  one cloud,  one sunset or sunrise,  one bird,  one tree,  one little animal (not a snake,  difficult for me to even look at one!!),  and then look on the face of one child.  You can't help it.  They are God's creation and He deserves our praise.
