HEALING GARDEN BLESSINGS

CIRCLE – ETERNAL, NEVER ENDING, CONTINUOUS; IT IS 33 FEET IN DIAMETER, ESTIMATED AGE JESUS DIED.

CROSS – CENTER IN OUR LIVES, THE GLOBE LIGHTS SHINE UPWARD, ASCENDING ALL OUR PRAYERS, SACRIFICES AND REPARATIONS TO HEAVEN.  WE FOUND 2 HEART SHAPED ROCKS IN THE HAIL HOLY RECTANGLE.  WE PUT THESE HEARTS IN THE CENTER OF THE CROSS UNDER THE PAVER STONES.  SACRED HEART OF JESUS AND THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY.

RECTANGLE – CONNECTING THE CIRCLE IS WHERE WE SAY THE HAIL HOLY QUEEN PRAYER.  IT IS 3 FEET WIDE = THE HOLY TRINITY; AND 5 FEET LONG = THE 5 DECADES OF THE ROSARY AND THE 5 - 1ST SATURDAYS OUR LORD ASKED US TO DO.

ROCKS – FOUNDATION OF OUR FAITH; 12” APART ON CENTER = 12 APOSTLES, 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL, 12 MONTHS OF THE YEAR.  UNDER THE OUR FATHER ROCKS IS SOIL FROM FATIMA, PORTUGAL.

SOLAR LIGHTS – SOLAR MEANS SUN / “SON”; LIGHT OF OUR SALVATION.  THE LIGHT BETWEEN THE ROCKS SHINES DOWNWARD IN A STAR PATTERN TO FOLLOW.  THEY ARE THE CHAIN LINKS IN OUR ROSARIES.  THE CROSS GLOBE LIGHTS DON’T SHINE DOWN, ONLY UP TO LIGHT OUR WAY TO SALVATION.

MULCH – SOFT BARK OF WOOD FROM TREES ELEVATED; THE CROSS.

FOOTSTEPS UP THE CROSS TO HEAVEN – SEE THE BRICKS UP THE CENTER OF THE CROSS PLACED LIKE FOOT STEPS – OUR PATH TO EVERLASTING LIFE.  BLESSED MOTHER IS SOMETIMES KNOWN AS THE MOON, REFLECTING HER “SON’S” (SUN’S) LIGHT IN THE SKY.
