Rose in Winter


Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung!


Of Jesse's lineage coming
As men of old have sung.


It came, a Flow'ret bright,
Amid the cold of winter
When half-spent was the night.

~German carol from the 16th century~


I love the word picture of this Christmas carol.  Jesus was like a rose blooming in the middle of winter, come from the old family root of Jesse, who lived 1,000 years before.  The picture I took of the rose above was taken yesterday, not quite mid-winter, and it was a little freeze-dried. (:  I really like old Christmas songs like this one, just think, people have been singing these words for 500 years!  God's truth is unchanging.
