Labor Day 2012…
Hot, humid, and I was working at the table in the air conditioning…lots of computer work today. I looked out the sliding glass doors viewing the deck. The sunflowers that were blazing just a week or so ago, now had their heads bowed as their golden petals withered in the waning summer on its last holiday.
Rather than mourn my loss, I looked for God’s gifts…the mercies we fail to see when we are forced to face change. And with my camera and my 300mm zoom, I saw. I saw and captured His faithfulness. My heart repeated Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:26 once again, “Look at the birds…” (If you have read earlier posts, you know that birds hold a special place with me…)
These sunflowers were not purposefully planted…they were volunteers from bird feeders filled until early summer. God wastes nothing. And uses all for our good.
I finished up my coursework on the computer…but most of the day I was mesmerized by the gift of the Goldfinches that God sent my way.
