The Sun

Isn't it something how even a 3 week old yellow squash plant knows how to find the sun? It knows the source of its strength, and where it can look for nourishment and life.
 
I know that there's another Son; one that also gives strength, nourishment, and life. Even Everlasting Life. If you see me "bending," know I'm doing my best to bend toward Him.

Beautifully written. I love the comparison. You are such a great example, my friend.

I second that. That was really sweet to read. May we all bend in that same direction.

Yesterday we took advantage of a sunny day to go on a little walk around the neighborhood and I saw one little flower coming up after a long winter. Makes you stop and remember how HE is always there waiting for us to come towards Him. Isn't spring a wonderful time to reflect on the gospel of Jesus Christ?

That son and sun are homonyms is more than serendipity. I am reminded of the words of Shakespeare in Richard III "Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this son of Kent." I prefer to phrase it in regards to the winters of our lives, made "glorious summer by the Son of God!"
