Sunflowers and Cardinals

This beautiful flower is courtesy of my next door neighbor. Her home and yard are landscaped so nice and I'm sure we're a thorn in her side. She has a country look to her front yard decor and this jaunty flower is next to a rustic fence.

I've been battling an emotional/physical mess the last week or so and really struggling. This morning during prayers I asked God to help take away my pain and bad attitude. When I drove down the street on the way to work there was a vibrant cardinal perched atop a white mailbox just a singing away. What a blessed reminder to look for beauty today!
