Sunflower, originally uploaded by duopastorale.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

I love this verse. It may even be my favourite verse in the Bible. And the sunflower of course is the flower of hope, and when you have blue sky too how can you not feel that hope rising? We all need it. In God I have hope today. Click on the logo for more!

Wow, that is a beautiful picture. I'm longing for the blue sky after all the bad weather from the storms we've had it. Just another reminder of the "Son" always shines and brings you through the storms.

From all the comments, I can see that sunflowers resonate with a lot of people. They have special meaning for me too, and this one's posture made me cry. It's all good. Peace! :)
