What Sunflowers Do

Today has been a tough day. My six-year-old has an upper respiratory infection, I'm not feeling well myself, and emotionally I'm just kind of spent. After a long day here at home and an early evening spent at the local urgent care center with my son, I pulled into the driveway and I was reminded of the joy underneath all this yucky stuff when I saw the pretty yellow sunflowers my mother-in-law planted on our property this year. I'm so grateful for those yellow sunflowers tonight. I'm grateful for my Yellow Joy Machine traveling buddies. I may not feel all super-dee-duper joyful this evening, but I'm turning toward the light because I know that 

"Weeping may last through the night, 
but joy comes with the morning." 
(Psalm 30:5b, New Living Translation)

Keep your face to the sunshine 
and you cannot see the shadow. 
It's what sunflowers do. 
- Helen Keller
