Summer 2021: Sunflowers in Texas

There was a minister I knew who used to always say these words to the congregation before he began his sermon.  He would say: "God is good".  The congregation would respond:  "All the time!"  Then he would say: "All the time!" and the congregation would respond:  "God is good".

We folks in Texas are not accustomed to harsh winters.  The snowstorm in February 2021 took us completely by surprise.  It was the first time the entire state of Texas was ever told to brace for the snow. Although according the news reports, we would have been able to weather the storm had the power grid not failed!  Now it's summer time and they are telling us not to use to so much electric power because it would strain the grid.

I am not going to complain.  

The Lord helped me survive the winter storm.  Now He is helping me make it through the summer heat.  Uuhh ... Did I say heat?  What heat?  I have been living in Texas since 1995.  Having been used to scorching hot Texas summers and enduring triple-digit temperatures (100 degrees plus), our summer days this year have been 80 degrees, some of them were even in the 70s and it rained!

As if the pleasant summer weather wasn't enough to show His blessings.  Guess what?


In Texas, we always get excited about the blue bonnets since that is our state flower. But this summer (2021) sunflowers seems to be popping up in parts of South and Central Texas. It's so unusual they reported it in the local news! 

“Texas is seeing sunflowers everywhere this summer for unexpected reasons …”


"A field of sunflowers is amazing to see. Every single flower is parallel to the others around it. ... Because of a central focus, sunflowers stay unified in purpose and position. ...

Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. Much of the meaning of sunflowers stems from its namesake, the sun itself."
