Today is the first day of the conundrum – we have always celebrated our anniversary as 28 May (seventeen years ago); then we got legally married in New York on 13 December, and had a blessing of our lifelong covenant on 17 May. What date do we celebrate? (someone suggested that we celebrate all three).
Our dear friend Lurline Speer Dupree, who had never crocheted before, made us this wreath to celebrate the major events in our life – here is her explanation:
Green is the color of nature, fertility, life. Grass green is the most restful color. Green symbolizes self-respect and well being. Green is the color of balance. It also means learning, growth and harmony. Green is a safe color, if you don’t know what color to use anywhere use green.
Green is favored by well balanced people. Green symbolizes the master healer and the life force. It often symbolizes money. It was believed green was healing for the eyes. Egyptians wore green eyeliner. Green eyeshades are still used. You should eat raw green foods for good health. Friday is the day of green. Green jade is a sacred stone of Asia.
Light red represents joy, passion, sensitivity, and love.
Pink signifies romance, love, and friendship. It denotes feminine qualities and passiveness.
There are many types of jasper; it is one of the oldest known gemstones. It is mentioned in the Bible several times. All jaspers are strong securing, stability stones. It is a powerful protection against things that are not good for you and it eases emotional stresses, making it a wonderful gemstone to have in your home.
There are 17 hearts.
