As the sunflower grows tall
To face the sun and it’s rays
We look to the Son, and seek His face
In His warmth, we bask long
In His wisdom, we listen and wait
Learning to trust Him fully in the way
Time passes …
We begin to realize and appreciate
The Sunflowers dignity as it fades
Bending forward to give us sweet seed
In golden fields of hay…
To Rest In Peace, as if to say
Look to Me on blended knee and pray
Hear Him say
I Am your strength for each new day

This pretty Sunflower has been grown from a seedling by Chantelle Marie.
She placed her seedling where it would get great amount of sun.
With careful watering, the sunflower plant grew and grew.
After time a flower began to form. Through much patience of waiting
She reaped the joy of her love and dedication, when the flower bloomed.
As we keep our eyes and hearts looking to Jesus; we grow like the sunflower. His love will bloom through us unto others; just as many new seeds are given by the sunflower.
Oh, The Joy of His salvation.

Matthew 13:23 “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the Word, and understandeth it, which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”

May your pillow be soft
Where your weary head lays …
Tonight and always
Rest well friend
