Hope all is well and you are having a blessed Saturday morning or whatever ever today is. I’m blessed. No complains from my end. Mind you I do have my challenges, worries and fears. I’m only human after all. But truly life’s a blessing filled with many sunflower days.
What do I mean? I mean standing tall and facing the sun (Son) no matter what. Fighting for your life and the strength to stand. I grew sunflowers for my second year this year. I have definitely seen more success than I did last year. I have grown my first ever 6 foot Sunflower. Some of my sunflowers have grown strong and standing tall and some didn’t stand at all. Their stem were all twisted and bendy. I desire to be like the strong sunflowers, growing as tall as it is in me to grow, looking toward the sun (Son), standing strong.
I have always wanted to see a Sunflower field and I got to see that for the first time a week ago. I have waited for many years for that small dream of many (dreams) to come true, and I’m very grateful. I’m very thankful for my Sunflower Days.
August is my most favorite month of the year. I look forward to that month for many reasons. It is usually a very exciting and happy month for me filled with lots of “sunflower days.” It is also a month where I celebrate the beginning of another year of life for my first born and only daughter (Aug 24th) and myself (Aug 28th).
A time when I reflect on what we’ve made it through, experienced and all our blessings, as well as carry on the hope and faith that more wonderful “sunflower days” are ahead.
Peace, Love and Blessings to you.
You stand grand and tall above them all
Your golden petals extend with majesty and grace
As the warmth of the sun reflect on your face
My dear sweet sunflower
I like it how you always face the sun
No matter what happens, it’s your life’s mission
So very much, I’d like to be like you
Make this my life’s mission too
Keep my eyes focused on all that’s bright
Let my light shine, like the sun’s glowing light
You are a happy flower
That’s how you make us feel
For this reason, to my heart you appeal
It brings joy to my soul
when I think about you
I’m thankful for God’s wonderful world
I’m thankful for you
So blessed and in awe
of all God’s beautiful creations
The birds, the trees, the flowers, the sky
You remind me of them all and lift my spirit high
Thank you, dear sunflower
For playing your part
And shining your light inside my heart

They spread firmly underneath the dirt
Not easily moved, not easily jerked
They give their owner the strength to stand
Stand up so tall, stand up so grand
Along with sun and air, they’ll make sure you’re well nourished
With strong roots a tree will flourish
With a healthy body, it can firmly stay
Not easily moved, not easily swayed
So make sure your roots are very strong
So you’ll have the strength to stand tall all life long
