Miracles

Last week, Karissa and I were in Iowa, driving through Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri to get there. I grew up on a farm, but I was again amazed to see those endless rows of corn and soybeans...green as can be during an awfully dry and hot summer. I was reminded by Duane Nicholson, who grew up in those corn fields of Iowa, that science has produced ways now of developing seeds to draw the water from deeper in the soil than in years past...a change in the shape of leaves in order to catch more moisture (dew, etc.) and hold it, and more development that I can't remember. In spite of brown, barren hillsides, highway shoulders, lawns, those fields are doing just fine.....what a miracle...lots of miracles...

Those corn and soybean fields should be dead, but they were "popping green"....God is never done with teaching us....
