A Rose E’er Blooming


“Lo, how a Rose e’er blooming from tender stem hath sprung! Of Jesse’s lineage coming as seers of old have sung.”  —  Isaiah 11:1*

May you know peace and hope during this season of Light.


*(“Es ist ein Ros entsprungen” , Speyer Gesangbuch, 1599. Translated by Theodore Baker in 1894.)

  1. Beth, I’m hanging my head over a cup of coffee (as my mother always did) in preparation for heading to Church to join the choir at 9 am; and here I see your beautiful rose and perfect quote for this morning. I couldn’t help but smile. Thank you, and Merry Christmas to your entire family. Greet your delightful parents for me, I remember them with great fondness.


  2. Merry Christmas Beth! Thanks for the beautiful picture and thought this morning! Please greet everyone for me — thinking of you all on Christmas Day.
