 "He went without comfort so you might have it. 
He postponed joy so you might share in it.
He willingly chose isolation so you might never
be alone in your hurt and sorrow."
                                    ~ Joni Eareckson Tada

"Our most meaningful purpose can be found
exactly in our most painful brokenness."

Sunflowers in the Fall reminds me of bowing low, humbling ourselves, and dying to self.

When their heads become too heavy to hold up. they bow as low as thy can go,and after a while die.

I come along later on collect all the seeds so I can replant next year.

The Lord spoke to my heart. "If you want to do something great for me become a servant, become low for me, and humble yourself."

I want to die to self. I want less of me and more of Him. I want to be unseen. I want to be a blessing to others.

This is my prayer. "Oh Lord fill me with thyself I pray!"
