The Legend of the Dogwood Poem   12 comments


My  sister posted about the Legend of the Dogwood today and since I recently discovered that I had two Dogwood trees in my backyard, I decided to share this poem.  I never knew that these two trees were Dogwoods.  It gives me a new appreciation for this beautiful tree.  Even though it is just a legend,  I appreciate the reminder of my Savior’s sacrifice for me whenever I see these trees!

Blessings on you as we anticipate Resurrection Sunday!

I ran across this on a couple of blogs I visited and just love this idea that Amy over at Signs, Miracles, and Wonders has come up with. Here’s what she says…

“I think you are going to love this! The instructions are easy. Just write a post on your blog about a song. It can be a song that has spoken to your heart during a difficult time… a song that brings back a special memory… a song that makes you want to sing along to the top of your lungs… a song that makes you glad… a song that makes you want to dance… a song that has inspired you… a song that makes you feel like the words were written just for you… a song that makes your soul sing.

You can include the lyrics or maybe include the You Tube video. After you write the post, come back here and link your post to Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page. Then you can come back and read about all the other songs and stories that are posted. I’m sure many of you love to worship through music and feel like God speaks to you through the words of songs just like I do. I can’t wait to hear all of your stories about it :)”

Now isn’t that a great idea! Here’s my song for this week…



Sanctus (Holy)

In earth and heaven there is none like you (Sanctus, Sanctus).
None worthy to ascend Your throne and rule (Sanctus, Sanctus).
Righteous and mighty King, saints and angels join to sing. (Sanctus, Sanctus)
Rex tremendae majestitis, rex excelsis Gloria, Gloria, Sanctus.

Savior, You’re the perfect, spotless lamb (Sanctus, Sanctus).
My every breath is given by Your hand (Sanctus, Sanctus).
You reign with power on high – we fall before you and we cry (Sanctus, Sanctus).
Rex tremendae majestitis, rex excelsis Gloria, Gloria, Sanctus.

With reverence and with fear with trembling lips – Lord we draw near singing
Holy, Holy, King of awesome majesty, King of highest glory, glory, Sanctus glory.

I just love this song.  It is so appropriate for this Easter weekend.  I couldn’t find a video on it but you can hear a sample here

Blessings to all this Easter Weekend!
