The Symbolic Dogwood Tree

Every year around this time, I find myself in East Texas admiring the beautiful dogwood blooms! Each delicate white flower is in the form of a cross! On the outer edge of each petal there are small holes outlined with a rusty color representing the spikes that pierced the hands and feet of our Lord Jesus. And if you look closely, you will see the golden cluster in the center, that recalls the crown of thorns placed on our Saviors head.Image
