The Sunflower

Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.
Isaiah 55:6

Sunflowers...those golden beauties whose name originally meant 'sun responder'.

I am vacationing in the land of sunflowers...rolling fields of sunflowers.

Is there anything quite as striking as that?

There are many flowers that turn their faces towards the sun. The sunflower turns to face the sun completely...leaves and all.

There's a lesson here for each of us. Are we seeking after God...completely?

Note ~ I must add that the sunflowers are somewhat late in blooming this year...I pulled this photo out of my files from another July visit to this same place.


  1. lessons from afar. Good post this morning Judy. I hope you are vacationing well...enjoying a break from it all. Can't wait to be updated later with all those photos you must be taking.


  2. That is a wonderful lesson...hope that you're enjoying a wonderful vacation in the Land of the Sunflowers!

  3. We should all warm our faces in His glory.

  4. Love the sunflowwers, are you in North or South Dakota, or maybe Nebraska??? Hmmm

    Good word for Sunday...

    Be Blessed...

  5. I love your sunflowers. I don't think that I realized that they turned all the way to the sun. What a great analogy about us turning completely to the Lord! I think they are such a gorgeous flower. I hope you are having fun on your trip. Anxious to hear more about it. Happy Sunday!

  6. Oh they are beautiful. I love the huge nodding heads of Sunflowers in the garden...and the birds do, too!

  7. Looking forward to your return.
    Guess what I'm doing tomorrow?
    Have a safe trip back and I love those flowers.

  8. Ah gorgeous. . love the little lessons. . even on your vacation .. we miss you . . have fun.

  9. So very true, there is so much to learn from God's creation is'nt there. Thanks for the reminder to turn our face and shine for him.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog with your comments and continue to enjoy your vacation.
