Red life

Linda, our church musician, gave me an amaryllis bulb for Christmas. Yesterday, Ash Wednesday, it blossomed.

O Cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.
(George Mattheson 1882)
