spirituality of my bean plants

My beans plants have just appeared. I planted them 3 weeks ago. Normally bean plants appear in 2 weeks. Quite a number of the seeds in the packet had been damaged. Combined damaged with delayed seeds and I had almost re-planted the garden, only to be rebuked by the rapid appearance of bean life on Monday.

forgive my easy dismissal and impatient hurrying
past the damaged and delayed
whether people or churches, cultures or institutions,

God, give me patience to tend absent life and
weed unproductive space

One way to make this blogpost your prayer could be to leave the initials of people and institutions you have treated as has-beens (pun intended).

  4. My wife is a woman of much faith and decided to grow peppers in Yorkshire…hmmmm… not a chance I thought – finished off in the kitchen window – four rather large red peppers that tasted good!

    And a few other people who deserve my prayers – PL, CofE, CA, SA. Amen
