Inspired by Nature

Our backyard garden produced some beautiful sunflowers this summer and this one is the best! Sunflowers have always been my favorite flower and it's so nice to look out the kitchen window and see their big, beautiful, bright "faces:)" Sunflower's heads turn towards the sun, following the life force each day from east to west, as they readily grow tall and strong.

Likewise we can grow as the sunflower...turning our faces each day towards the Son and following Him, our life source, helping us to stand tall and strong, making our faces beautiful and bright:)

My love for these giant beauties also inspired me...
to bake SUNFLOWER cookies! The morning was sunny, but cool, perfect for early morning baking:) These cookies can't really compete with nature in size and perfection, but they taste pretty darn good(unless you prefer sunflower seeds over sweets)! I prefer cookies:)

Have a sunny, sunflower lovin' day!
