Sunny Faces

Dear God,

Thank You for the field of sunflowers this morning. A sea of beautiful, golden-yellow faces with a dark spot in the middle as if they each had dunked their noses in creamy chocolate and hadn’t bothered to lick it off. But then, who would?

Each sunflower face was turned toward the sun . . . the huge fireball that their Creator told them would help them grow. So they face it to get their daily growth and glow.

When the vast, colorful field faded from view, You whispered in my ear, “There is a lesson here, My Child. Don’t miss it.”

No, I don’t want to miss the lesson. Could it be that we need our faces turned upward too, facing the Son of Righteousness for our daily growth and glow?

And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with every-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
