Blessings from God – Peanuts!

Peanut Field in Georgia

Well, along with the Cotton, they’re also harvesting peanuts around here. This is the field across the road from our house. The peanut plants were turned over a few days ago and are now dry and ready to harvest.

Our gracious Lord has provided thousands of plants in abundance that give us food and clothing. And an extra blessing with peanuts is the chance to have some Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!

“How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.”  Psalms 36:7-9 ESV

  1. I love peanuts. I was raised in the Deep South and peanut-growing country. My favorite way to enjoy peanuts are green boiled. Oh my goodness! Love them. Did you know that Dothan Alabama has a yearly Peanut Festival? Sadly my daughter is allergic to peanuts, and our home is a peanut free home. I miss all things peanut. Great post!

    • Thanks, Stephanie – the small community near us (Brooklet, GA) also has a peanut festival each year. You have to be from the south if you like boiled peanuts. I love them too. Sorry to hear of your daughter’s allergy.
