This message can be summed up in the words of the hymn - "Sweet rose of Sharon, blooming for me, Jesus it is the emblem of Thee."
"I am the rose of Sharon".
Roses are the most popular flower on Valentine’s Day. They are an expression of love. Not many people would give a dandelion or a daffodil to their beloved! Just as the rose is a token of earthly love, the rose of Sharon is a token of heavenly love.
