Fruits of Labor

Back in May, right after Mother's Day, (it's the best time to plant 'round these parts) Logan and I planted some sunflower seeds. I dug the hole. Logan tossed the seed in and covered it back up and then happily sprinkled water on top. I showed Logan a picture of what to expect and he just looked at me and simply said "Yeah."

Then about 3 weeks later we saw a glimpse of green with the seed still hanging on to a sweet little leaf. I told Logan he could carefully pull the seed off. And every day, several times a day actually, Logan ran outside to check on his beloved little flower. And as the days turned into weeks that flower grew taller and taller. Finally growing as tall as the planter. Then, without warning, that little flower grew to twice the height of it's laborer. And just yesterday, it bloomed. Revealing this:

I waited all summer for this moment. And so did Logan...and with any luck we will be harvesting our own seeds soon. Isn't God amazing? All that love and hard work surely paid off.

And God said "Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth." And it was so.
