Me — Myself — and I

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Bouquet – Sept. 16, 2021

A BOUQUET

A Short Story to entertain! Titled: Me – Myself – and I

A party for me, myself and I, with beautiful decorations, are planned. Beautiful Bouquets will be placed here and there, along with ribbons and bows.


I love presents, and I hope I get lots and lots of gifts. Flowers too!
I am so excited! After all, it is my special day!


I need a new dress, and I hope I have a good hair day! I think I will put a bouquet of pins in my hair. I have such lovely hair, I want to show it off.


Finally, the day arrived, and everyone was coming! Everyone that I invited, that is.
I, I, and I nothing else seems important than what I want.


The sound of the doorbell ringing was music to my ears, each time, it meant a new gift for me.
The presents were all neatly stacked around the decorative bouquets, but one of them was rather strange because it was round in shape. Oh well! I wondered! Round is good. It has no end!
Upon opening the gifts and tossing them from right to left, she grabbed that box very brightly wrapped with a circular form.
What!
What kind of gift is this, a box without a bottom? Putting her hand into the package, it seemed to go down as far as she could reach; she stretched her arm but felt nothing. Raising her hand as she reached for the card; the card, she neglected to read, it said: Stop reaching DOWN to SELF, reach UP to find your BOUQUET from God.

Meaning of the color PURPLE, & LIFE

 

 

Immediately when viewing this photo, I was reminded of not only the path pictured here and how it is “life” itself—our journey to our goal, heaven.

The violet/purple flowers also are symbolic. One of the colors of the rainbow but also the meaning of the color itself.  Violet– The last glow of the rainbow is a mix of red and blue. It is considered the highest element of spirituality.

The path surrounded by purple/violet flowers, the color, meaning those who seek the purpose of life again our pathway. The color itself represents royalty, which is why in the Bible, we see the soldiers put on His body, (Jesus Christ)  to mock Him, a purple robe. Why because purple/violet again representing — Priesthood, Kingship, Royalty, mediator, wealth.

In my opinion, this photo speaks of life, the path, the flowers, the colors. Our experience as the path is broader at the beginning and gets narrower as we travel along, a life of happiness but sorrow too!

Dark tones of violet are associated with sorrow. Deeper shades of violet or purple denote high spiritual mastery.

Word Prompts

BOUQUET of devotions — Tradition

Spiritual Bouquet a Traditional Catholic Practice

A card the giver will offer to a special loved one. In the form of a greeting card, the giver will promise to pray devotional prayers, such as one rosary just for the intention of the recipient; or two or three, etc. rosaries. The idea is that you will pray for what you write down.    BouquetOf

The recipient will appreciate the card if hand-made as will the giver having the opportunity of doing so.

When a child in Catholic school, I remember enjoying creating these unique greeting cards. Today you will find many elements for enhancing hand-made greeting cards. My guess is you already have the makings of a greeting card waiting. Remember the essential ingredient is your promise to pray.

Today is Fathers’ Day this idea of a Spiritual Bouquet would be an excellent gift for any father to receive from his child be it the child is 3 or 33 or whatever.

Cee = See Which Way Photo Challenge

To illustrate with Photos is the gist of this post.  Which way is always  God’s way.

The Traditional Catholic Church is still alive and well, these photographs prove it.  Traditional processions are ongoing with decorated paths well seasoned, dressed up for Him who is honored.

I hope you enjoy the photographs taken a few years ago in Washington State at St. Michaels parish known as @MSMParish on twitter.
