The Last Sunflower…

IMAG4457-1

I planted the sunflowers late this year, and this was the last one to stand tall before bowing to a new season…

Somewhere around the second week of September it gave its last show…although a little tattered… It stood tall and proud and beautiful…

I’m still in the process of becoming a letting-go expert… Not sure if I’ll ever master this art, but as a human, I continue to try…

On this last day of September, I had a cup of hot tea with cinnamon toast — which is such an autumn/winter thing for me to do.

We’ll celebrate my mom’s birthday in October, and then Thanksgiving and Christmas will roll in again…

Time keeps going…

Another friend went Home to Heaven recently… We’re all in the process of letting go…

And the garden still has tomatoes ripening on the vine and carrots getting ready for harvest and more basil ready to pick…

Life keeps going…

As long as God gives us breath, there’s living to do — every day, in all seasons…

So will go into October seeing all the beauty that month holds…

As God holds me, holds you…

He’s got a firm grip… He loves us so much… And He’s not going anywhere.

I like that.

It’s the reason I can learn to let go, and let Him hold me up…

Just like a sunflower…
