Sunflowers and Silver Threads

I feel like I owe an explanation for my blog title.

You see, I was walking across campus one day, and thinking about how great it is being alive.  As I walked I noticed that this gratitude inside me was a flower.  It felt like a sunflower was blooming inside my chest.

So one purpose of this blog is to record those sunflower moments - the things that make my inner garden bloom.  And one of those things is you.  What I mean is that I'm in awe of the magnificence of the people that populate this planet.  Sometimes I go about my life, bogged down in insignificant things, until something makes me remember what is really important.  I am a spirit child of the God of the universe.  Within me there is a well of living water springing unto life eternal.  And that is true of each person on the Earth.

I think we sometimes get so tangled in mortality that we forget about the transcendent, glowing, vibrant silver threads that connect us to eternity.  Our spirits.  That within us which has never been afraid or hurt or embarrassed.  That which is, always has been, and always will be completely whole.
