sunflowers follow the sun

They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces will never be ashamed. Psalm 34:5

Our sunflowers are growing, growing, growing! Today I showed Ethan how the sunflower leaves bend and reach for the sun. In the morning our sunflowers are facing East & in the evening they have followed the sun and have turned to face the West. I talked to him about how we as Christians are to look to the Lord and follow Him like those sunflowers do to the sun. Our faces will be radiant when we look to the Lord :)

We made this easy craft to illustrate our lesson...



My son had to put the correct sunflower on each side, the sunflower leaves should be facing the sun :) Simple & such a great reminder for him!
