Driving up to the Midlands to conduct a wedding rehearsal I noticed the hundreds of sunflowers next to the highway. It makes a welcome change from tar and concert! It is impressive to see how these beautiful flowers blossom in an unlikely place. Here are my random thoughts on what sunflowers can teach us about life.

They flower wherever they find themselves.
They are hardy and resilient.
They turn their heads towards the sun.
They make the world a beautiful place.

Perhaps God has called us to be 'sunflowers' today.

1 Peter 2:12 - Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God...

Living in Grace,
