Legend of the Dogwood Tree

In Jesus’ time, the dogwood grew to a stately size and a lovely hue.

‘Twas strong and firm its branches interwoven for the cross of Christ its timbers were chosen.

Seeing the distress at this use of their wood, Christ made a promise which still holds good;

“Never again shall the dogwood grow large enough to be used so.

Slender and twisted, it shall be with blossoms like the cross for all to see.

As blood stains the petals marked in brown the blossom’s center wears a thorny crown.

All who see it will remember Me. Crucified on the cross from the dogwood tree.

Cherished and protected, this tree shall be
A reminder to all of My Agony.”
