Have you ever truly noticed the exact order of the center of a sunflower?
Notice how there are two mesmerizing patterns of two opposite spirals? Each floret is generally oriented toward the next by approximately the "golden" angle of 137.5 degrees, producing a pattern of interconnecting spirals where the number of left spirals and the number of right spirals are successive. Typically, there are 34 spirals in one direction and 55 in the other. On a very large sunflower there could be 89 in one direction and 144 in the other.
Pretty thought provoking? Each time I discover facts like these, it affirms to me that our God is a God of order.
The entire universe has a specific order, so why don't I? This is my current conviction. I do not suffer from feeling like I have no purpose. I have a pretty good grasp on God's plan for my life during this season. Many things continue to change, but the foundation of who I am as a help meet, a mother, a daughter, a friend and a mentor remain the same. What's weighing on me is "How can I do it better"?
