Sunflowers and Apples wreath
Fall is Here!
Now that Fall is officially here, let's celebrate by creating a wreath that incorporates two common symbols of this season: the sunflower and apples. As we look ahead to the months of October and November, months that complete and finish the liturgical year, these two symbols in nature can connect our thoughts to the liturgy and the final "gathering in."
Sunflowers are the symbol of obedience. They spend their entire day simply turning their faces towards the sun. Wherever it goes, they follow. It is such a simple and honest action. There is no hiding or subterfuge. They, with their broad, open faces, are completely transparent. They challenge us to do the same. Do we travel through our days with our heads down, not looking to the Son? Do we seek God's presence throughout the hours of the week? Do we look for him in spite of clouds and rain?
