As sunflowers naturally turn to the sun, so we can naturally soak in the healing, comforting light of God.
My eyes take in the sunflowers,
emblazoned in jaunty rich gold. Angling
perfectly in one direction, turning
naturally, they reach for the sun
whose name they evoke.
Following the sun – no distraction
or deflection – they, strong and
stunning, soak in the light.
I think of how You, God – divine Soul,
the light of life – have created each
of us as Your serene child, spiritual,
unshadowed by fear, violence, destruction.
Turning to You like the sunflower
to the sun, we stretch toward the
shining truth of our spiritual nature.
Then we take hold of Your warm
outpouring of love that softens hearts,
heals, comforts, promises good.
Standing together, each of us drawn
irresistibly to the same spiritual light,
may we turn as one – emboldened – all
drinking in equally Your big blessedness.
