Life is Grace

discoveries of grace in my messy and imperfect, but blessed, life

Keep your face to the sun and you cannot see the shadow. That’s what the sunflowers do.

Helen Keller

I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that trumpets life more than the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason for its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.

Helen Mirren

despite knowing
they won’t be here for long
they still choose to live
their brightest lives

We currently have a big bunch of sunflowers in residence on our coffee table, and they are exquisitely glorious. Like sunshine, poured into a glass vase, smack dab in the middle of our living room. September sunflowers. Really, sometimes all one can do is whisper a quick “thank you” to God.
