Sunflower Sojourn Turns 5!

Sunflower Sojourn turns 5 today! Dear reader, I could never have fathomed what God would do in my life in 5 years! I'm in a completely different place than I could have ever imagined back when the idea for the blog came to me. Over and over again, the Lord has proved Himself faithful! I'm... Continue Reading →

Changing Seasons.

Have you ever been surprised at how quickly the seasons change? Quickly, sometimes surprisingly. A bright, brutally hot summer abruptly turns to a chilly, gray fall. Fall to winter. Frozen winter to a blooming spring. It's a bit the same with the seasons in our lives. Our seasons change, but not always with our consent.... Continue Reading →

From Fear to Faith.

Just over a year ago, I posted this. The gist of the article was about my fears surrounding taking a huge life leap--a leap that would disrupt the stability of everything in my life. Believe me, it was a turbulent time. A year later, here I am. I'm still standing. I'm not in the same place, geographically,... Continue Reading →

Walking into Rainbows

This week was one of the most trying I have had in a long time. I was in survival mode, at work and at home. I felt out of my element and exhausted, emotionally and physically. The cold and rainy, dark weather did not help my energy level or my mood. Then came the long-awaited Friday. I... Continue Reading →

All For His Glory.

Everything won't always go the way we hope it will. The important thing is that we do it all for God's glory. We must live for His glory, and not our own. It's easy to get caught up in society. So easy, in fact, that too often we don't realize that we've gotten caught up in... Continue Reading →
