Face Toward the Sun

I love sunflowers. They're bright and joyful and exactly my favorite color of yellow. But I also love them because they remind me how to live: They stand straight and tall and always turn their faces toward the sun. In a field of sunflowers you can locate the sun without even looking up, just by noting which way all of the sunflowers face.

I want my life to be one of strength, dignity, and beauty. I will stand straight and tall and keep my face pointed toward the Son of God. And my prayer is that when people see me, their eyes will be redirected to Jesus Christ- the source of any goodness that I have and the reason for my joy.
