sunflower


I've always loved Sunflowers.  They are abundant around here this year.  I love them because they are cheerful and bright. They are pretty and sunny!  
They keep their faces always toward the sun; following it's arc across the sky.
The lesson for us is simple and obvious.
But now and then you will find one that has lost it's bearings.  This one I photographed in our yard, for example, had the sun behind it.
Sunflowers are a good reminder -- where is my head?  Has my gaze turned away from that which gives me Life?  Has my face turned to follow something other than the Son?

  1. I have noticed that not all sunflowers follow the sun. Not like back home. .Good comparison

  2. The sunflowers with heavy heads and lots of seeds can barely stand up, let alone swivel :)
