Sunflowers....Like a Ray of Sunshine

Poem by Norma Beaird
To behold a sunflower is to LOVE a sunflower!
This beautiful flower is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.
It's a gentle reminder of the blessings of the Lord and how we can find happiness in the simple things of life......lovely moments in nature remind us that He is near.
When life shows up with circumstances that don't agree with our well-crafted agendas, a sunflower is a sign of hope, that even after a storm, the sun will shine again.
A sunflower is like melted butter on bread that has been toasted in a cast iron skillet. Their brightly hued petals tastes good to the soul on a planet filled with bitterness and tears.
Sunflowers like bees and bees like sunflowers! A bumble bee buzzes around a sunflower while this burst of yellow gold just stands there and screams
"I'm Happy and I'm Contagious"!
A sunflower reminds us of the innocence of a child, the sweetness of honey and the fragrance of orange groves. They invigorate us like raindrops through a cool mountain breeze while we sip on a hot cup of coffee! Sunflowers bring us comfort and peace.
Sunflowers are like happy people.....they smile at everyone they meet and give us another reason to have faith in God's glorious creation, which includes us. We were created in the image of God. Sunflowers are generous.....because they give so much more than they receive.
Sunflowers are like bananas because they are good for you. Sunflowers are nourishment for nature and food for the spirit. Just beholding one of these grand designs of creation will bring showers of optimism and tranquility in the desert of fear and anxiety.
Sunflowers pollinate the world with joy!
Sunflower fields should be a requirement on every highway and street.
Sunflowers are a sign that God will take care of us.
They produce food for the birds and their seeds produce a starburst of promise.....a promise that as a seed is planted in the ground, the rain will fall and the sun will shine and the flowers will bloom again.
