Sunflowers on Sunday

Here you frequently see large lots planted with sunflowers while driving along in the countryside. Most of it is produced for oil and some for feed, but the vision of seas of yellow always delight my eyes.

Not long ago I've come across a blog drawing a parallel between the sunflowers and the followers of Christ - how they both seek the source of light. Thought I would also use this visual reminder that today is Sunday.

Lovely photo and sentiment.
I like to sit and watch there heads
turn with the sun, it's like a field
of spectators watching a very slow
motion game. I do like the parallel
with followers of Jesus.
