Jesus, The Rose of Sharon
As I make the daily morning ride to work I love to enjoy the elegance and beautiful flowers upon Ohio's, "Rose of Sharon". We have experienced a hot and wet Spring and Summer this year, in 2011. In all my years on planet Earth;I've never noticed the elegance, the dignity, and the beauty of Ohio's flowering plant called the Rose of Sharon. Perhaps this appreciation is because the Rose of Sharon is a Biblical topic and shares a beautiful, poetic, and prophetic picture of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. How I appreciate it's glory! How I appreciate the prophetic poetry from the Song of Solomon, about Jesus...the Rose of Sharon".
Song of Solomon 1:1-4...I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
