One tiny seed is placed in the dark of Mother Earth, it is watered by rain from Heaven, blessed by man and often grows as tall as six feet, just like man. When they become mature and in harvest season, so rich from God's blessings, like man, they often become stooped with age.
The main stalk is strong which is the life center and often has seven branches or twigs symbolizing the seven days of the week. Also, it has 12 green leaves representing the 12 months of the year. The branches often have three nice sunflowers symbolizing the Blessed Trinity. Each flower has 52 golden yellow petals, which represents the 52 weeks of the year. In the center of the yellow frame of petals are 365 rich seeds representing our calendar year. These seeds are protected from weather by husks, and contain a sweet meat and oil for the nourishment of our bodies. Even the birds of the air feed on them. Each morning, the sunflower faces the rising sun to the East, as to say, 'Good Morning to the Great Spirit.
"We call this beautiful stately flower of God, the Emblem of Spiritualism.
The flowers are often planted in a cluster, or a long row, and act as a fence or barrier from storms, as well as shade from the hot summer sun. We're all blessed with a very wealthy Father who meets our every need. If we would remember that self-preservation is nature's first law, we would thank God for our Health, Wealth, Prosperity, and Spirituality in the knowledge of the life of the Sunflower. Truly, our God is Wonderful!"
