I love the meaning of the "Rose of Sharon" - God is with us! July 17, 2013 - I thought this bush was a weed in our backyard. Today this flower was blooming. It is a "Rose of Sharon" which symbolizes love, beauty and healing. The limb it is blossoming from is broken. When we are broken God will help us to blossom if we will turn our life over to him. It is ironic the symbolism, finding this rose, holds for my own life today. It is my sign that God is with me.
