Lynn, I love your first stanza about the pink dresses and little white shoes (those certainly were the days...) as well as the very lovely repeated stanza about the dogwood in both of your pieces. Thankfully as your wonderful title shares, Christ does remain the same! Have you ever seen the poem on the Dogwood Tree? A copy was sent after the Oklahoma City bombing to the White house after they planted a Dogwood on the White House lawn. Thank you so much for this. I am really glad you entered this challenge.
God's loving blessings on you my friend.
