The Sunflower and Me
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

The Sunflowers and Me

As the sunflower faces the rising sun
I, too, turn to the Holy One
Basking in the warmth of His love
I am given direction and guidance from God above
In order to thrive, I depend on His grace
He will shine the light of truth upon my face
The sunflower stands straight and tall
Yet bows her head before one and all
She attracts the bees so there will be honey
Though the days may cloud, her disposition is sunny
Here we stand in all our glory
Ours is a wondrous love story

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
