Texas Sunflowers... be on the lookout for a good crop after all this rain.

The rain has continued to fall all over Texas. The lakes were down up to 24 ft, some even lower, and now all but I believe two in our area are full. OVER full. They have even opened some of the flood gates to release water from a nearby lake creating more flooding in our county. 

We have all steadily prayed for the end of our drought. I do believe our prayers are answered and with extra rain still coming down.  

I use to paint sunflowers all the time and this was a small one but the image seems really big to me. Most were painted from 2005-2007. I would entitled them with the highway number we were on when I took the photos.  This one was Hwy 114 running from Grapevine out to where we lived at the time in Justin, Texas. 

May this sunflower bless your week with God's beauty. Take time to enjoy every breath, every flower, every smile... and make sure you share it forward. 

Blessings, Laurie
