“A Prayer Of Thanks For the Work Of Christ”

May 1, 2019

Father, while we have no history to indicate the Dogwood Tree was the wood Jesus’ cross was made of, we can appreciate the symbolism from this beautiful tree created by You, the Master Creator. The Dogwood is said to carry the marks of Jesus’ crucifixion; it’s four large petals representing the cross He died upon, and each petal displaying four notches (some red tinged) that are said to represent four nail holes. And we can see in the center of each flower the stamen, which is a green cluster symbolic of Jesus’ crown of thorns. That which reminds us of the great love and sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf is worthy of our attention and that which is created by You helps us to appreciate all You provide for our daily enjoyment and comfort. Amen.
