Cure for Darkness and Sorrow

Remaining rosebud by Melianthus Major December 23, 2012

Lo, How a Rose
Lo, how a Rose up-springing
On tender root has grown:
A Rose by prophet's singing
To all the world make known
The rose midst winter's cold
A lonely blossom bearing,
In former days foretold.

This Rose then of my story
Isaiah did proclaim
What God ordain'd in glory
By blessed Mary came.
The Child the Virgin bore,
The world's salvation bringing
Through Him for ever-more.

The Rose-bud small and tender
Gives fragrance ev'ry day.
And by It's brilliant splendor
Makes darkness pass away
True God, true Man, we pray,
Help us in ev'ry sorrow,
And guard us on our way. Unknown, 15th century German

"For God so loved the world that he gave is one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NIV

" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but have the light of life." John 8:12 NIV

The rosebud appeared and stayed as I dealt with cancer surgery, a message from God.
 Have a Blessed Christmas!
