The air grew heavier with smoke. Garnet could feel the heat penetrating the tub. It would all be over soon and they would be together. He shifted so he could see her face. If he was going to die, he wanted to be looking at his one true love.

She was beautiful, even facing death. He traced his finger along her cheek. Why had he waited so long to tell her how he felt? Sweat beaded on his forehead, there was one thing he had to do before dying. He had to kiss her. No matter what the afterlife held, he had to kiss her in life.
Bending down he brushed his lips against hers. They felt like rose pedals surrounded in silk.

Kori gasped as if surfacing from a deep pool. She was alive!

Adrenaline pumping through his veins, he stumbled to his feet. He grew dizzy once again, but fought the urge to fall. He had to get Kori out of there. He had to save her, no matter the cost.

The flames had reached the bedroom door. Garnet looked around and grabbed two large towels. Wetting them in the shower, he gently wrapped Kori in one, while flinging the other one over his head and shoulders.

Picking her up, he ran through the house, letting out a warrior cry. No flames touched him, they didn’t dare.

He exited the house as firemen surrounded them with heavy blankets and oxygen masks. They tried to take Kori, but Garnet would not release his grip, carrying her to the ambulance himself.
As he laid her on the gurney her eyes fluttered open. He held his breath and she reached up and removed the oxygen mask.

“Garnet, I love you, too.”

Stone Magic!!!!!!! "The Spirit Within"

 HISTORY & LORE OF THE GARNET




The history of garnet’s ability to bring about transformation is found in many books. Thelma Isaacs writes that “garnets used for healing were usually almandine and pyrope, the red and purple-red transparent minerals. They were thought to counter melancholy and act as a heart stimulant. In ancient times, there were some who believed that gazing at a red garnet could lead to passion, anger, and even apoplexy.” Barbara Walker believes that “garnet blood magic was left over from ancient ideas of the life-giving powers of uterine blood.” Garnet was named from granatum, the pomegranate, a red-jeweled womb symbol ever since the matriarchal age. Because of these ancient connections with feminine life force, it was sometimes thought that only women should wear garnets.

Thoughts from Cathy

Life can be a Bitch! Deal with it! 
I have found that as I get older, changes don't seem to bother me as much anymore. I have learned through some very rough times that I have the power to push my way through all of the crap that the devil throws at me and with the help of my friend, my savior, my God, everything will turn out for the better.  This is saying a lot from a 55 year old woman whose brain takes many mini pauses and who's body likes to take itself on mini vacations to the Bahamas. Not to mention a tad of Irish blood running through my veins. I have learned that most things are out of my control, so I must just do the best that I can and DEAL with it. For all of you that feel like change is scary, you are right, it is, but in the end the old saying stands true. When one door closes, another opens.... just don't let yourself get lost in the darkness of the hallways in between. Look for the Light of God peeking under the door that is about to open and let it guide you to your true purpose.

Garnet ~ A Mini Novella Part 4

In case you missed them:

Part 1: http://annas-legacy.blogspot.com/2012/01/garnet-mini-novella-part-1.html

Part 2: http://annas-legacy.blogspot.com/2012/01/garnet-mini-novella-part-2.html

Part 3: http://annas-legacy.blogspot.com/2012/01/garnet-mini-novella-part-3.html

Time stood still for Garnet. His one true love lay motionless in the bathtub as flames closed in on the small room. The smoke burned his throat as tears ran from his bloodshot eyes.

Falling to his knees he fumbled for the knobs to turn on the cold shower. He felt for a pulse on her wrist. Nothing. He tried again on her neck, willing himself not to shake, to concentrate. Nothing. He watched for the rise and fall of her chest, the heat increasing on his back. Nothing. He saw and felt nothing.

She was gone.

Garnet let out a roar. “She can’t die! Bring her back, God! Bring her back!”

He kissed her hand and wrist, cuddling the limp arm around his face. “Don’t go,” he whispered. “I need you. Please don’t die.”

Leaning over the tub he grabbed her under the arms, cradling his head under her neck. “I love you, Kori. I love you so much. I can’t do this without you. I don’t want to do this without you. Please, love, come back. Come back to me. You don’t have to love me, but you do have to be here for me to love. Don’t go.”

The smoke thickened and Garnet’s plea became a cough. He had to get her out of there, no matter what her condition. He wouldn’t leave her to… he couldn’t leave her to burn. He rose, determined to carry her away from the nightmare, but the room spun. He turned to the side and vomited.

He fought the urge to black out as he bent to pick her up. He coughed and fell forward. She crashed back into the tub.

He brushed her hair away from her face. “I’m so sorry, baby. If I can’t get you out, then I’ll stay with you. I promised never to leave you and I never will.”

Garnet climbed into the tub and wrapped his arms around Kori. He buried his head in her hair, inhaling the strawberry scent of her shampoo, and waited for the darkness take over.

Thoughts from Cathy

An Inspirational Story
By Cathy Collar

The Mourning Dove
By Cathy Collar  


The beautiful mourning dove stared thoughtfully at the large snowflakes as they slowly drifted to the ground.  It would soon be the start of a new year.  Today though was the start of her new life, a life without her mate.  She was not surprised that this had been their final year together.  They were both near the end of their life cycle.  For ten glorious years they had lived a very prosperous life.
           
She floated from her perch, following the snowflakes to the soft white ground.  Pecking through the snow, she found the corn seeds.  As she nibbled on one her thoughts drifted to their last days together.  He hadn’t felt well all year.  Their morning flights had lessened each day until he just couldn’t go anymore.  Then yesterday morning he flew off and hadn't returned.  She called for him all day, but her tender coos had not been answered.  She knew then, he would not come home.    
           
The roar from an engine, brought her back from her trance.  She bolted into the tree, safe from harm.  Alert to any sign of danger she listened and watched the vehicle come to an abrupt stop.
           
A young girl hopped out onto the pristine snow. 

“Daddy did you see it?” she squealed.
           
“See what?” asked her father pulling the sack of corn seed out of the pickup.
           
“The beautiful dove that was feeding when we drove up.”  Amy looked up into the dense foliage of the tree.  “I hope we didn’t scare her away.  She is so pretty!”
           
The dove peeked through the branches and studied the young human below.  “Coo, Coo,” she said.  “You are quit pretty too, little one!”
           
“Daddy! Did you hear that?  She is talking to me!”
           
“Now what makes you think she is talking to you?” Asked her dad.  “She is probably calling for her mate.”
           
“Cooooo,” the mournful cry escaped from the dove’s throat as see shuffled deeper into the foliage.  She just wanted to be alone, alone with her memories of him.
           
“Daddy, I think she might have lost her mate.” Said Amy.  “That coo sounded awfully sad.” 
           
David glanced into the tree.  “ I see her, but not her mate.  Well, they do mate for life, so she could be missing him.  This winter has been harsh.  It’s been hard on all of the wildlife.  That’s why we fill the feeders and leave a little of the crop up for their protection.  Unfortunately we cannot save them all.”  He lifted the bag pouring the seed into the feeder.  “Let’s go.  We have more feeders to fill and chores to do.”
           
Amy was still searching for the dove.  “We can’t leave her here alone, dad.  It’s Christmas and she has lost her mate.  It wouldn’t be right to leave her out here by herself!”
           
“Amy, she is a wild bird.  She will be fine.  She might even find a new mate. They sometimes do,”
           
“Squawk!!”  The angry sound echoed through the trees.  “Another mate! Never!”
           
“Daddy, go on ahead and pick me up on your way back.  I want to stay with her for awhile.”
           
“Okay.  But stay right here.  If she files away, I don’t want you to follow.  You hear me?”
           
“Yes daddy.  But I don’t think she’s going anywhere.  She is too sad.”
           
As David drove away Amy sat down on a log underneath the tree.  She looked down and started talking.  The dove could not hear her, so she hopped to a lower branch.  Silly child she thought.  Who are you talking to?  There is no one here, but you and me.  She cocked her head, but she still couldn’t hear.  A few more branches down and at last the soft voice filled the air.
           
“God.  I know you can hear me, because I am out here in your trees alone.  Well not completely alone.  You see, your lovely dove is up there somewhere in your tree and she is feeling very sad right now.  That is why I am talking to you.  I think she lost her mate and she is all alone.  Since I don’t speak dove and I know you do, I was wondering if you could give her a message from me?  I know you are very busy, but it is Christmas and I really don’t think she should spend it alone.”
           
“What! Thought the dove.  “Was this little girl really praying for her?”
She hopped a little closer.
           
“I know you can’t tell me, so I will leave the message in your hands and if you answer it I will know.”  Amy drew a piece of paper and pen from her pocket and wrote.
           
Dear Mrs. Dove.  I have heard your sad cry and it breaks my heart.  I know you miss your mate and have no other family since your babies have all flown away.  I want you to become a member of my family.  We will love you, feed you and keep you safe from harm.  You can live in the tree by my house or even in the barn if that would keep you warmer.  I promise to keep your feeder filled and visit you everyday.  Please come and stay with me and be my very special friend.  I will hang a pine cone feeder from a red ribbon in the tree by my house tonight.  I hope to see you in the morning,
                                                                                                            Love, Amy
           
As Amy stuck the note under a rock, her dad’s pickup popped over the hill. 
Amy had hung her pine cone feeder and said another little prayer before going to sleep.  She woke early the next morning to the sound of elated cooing outside her window.  Grabbing her robe, she ran to the tree.  There the dove sat on the pine cone feeder and in her beak was a twig filled with bright holly berries,

The dove dropped the twig into Amy’s hands.  “Thank you,” she coooed.

MYSTIQUE - STONE MAGIC (The Spirit Within)

History and Lore of Garnet 

In Greek mythology, a pomegranate is referenced as a gift of love and is associated with eternity. Nowadays, Garnet remains as a gift of love and is traditionally given for the 19th anniversary of marriage. It may also be used as a gift for two-year and six-year anniversaries. Moreover, Garnet is symbolic of a quick return and separated love, since Hades had given a pomegranate to Persephone before she left him to ensure her speedy return. Therefore, Garnet may be given to a beloved before embarking on a trip, as it is believed to heal the broken bonds of lovers.

Part 2 ~ http://annas-legacy.blogspot.com/2012/01/garnet-mini-novella-part-2.html

His feet barely touched the ground as he ran toward Kori’s house. Flames shot through the windows, the entire house engulfed. Garnet pulled out his cell phone and quickly dialed 9-1-1.

“Yes, there’s a fire at 2165 January Street. Please come quick. I’m going in.”

He dropped the phone and barreled through the door. “Kori!”

Smoke filled his nose and burned his throat, causing him to cough hard. “Kori!” he shouted again.

The flames licked at his jacket as he threw his arm over his nose and mouth. Making his way to the couch he found nothing. Turning toward the kitchen a small explosion turned the door frame into a wall of debris.

“Please God, let me find her,” he whispered as he ran toward her room. The flames had not made it to that side of the house, but the smoke was thick. “I can't lose her.”

He coughed again as he entered the master suite. There was no sign of Kori. Maybe she had gotten out. He hadn’t even looked around the house before barging in. How stupid, playing the hero was only going to get him killed. She wasn’t even in here.

He swung around to rush back out the front door, begging the path to be clear, when something caught his eye. The bathroom door was shut. Kori never shut it, even when it was ‘occupied’ because the handle stuck.

Running to the door he tried the handle. Nothing. He kicked until the door gave way. There he found Kori, curled up in the tub. The area under nose black with soot.

Another explosion rocked the house. Garnet grabbed Kori’s hand and pulled, hoping she would follow. But she didn’t move.

Stone Magic!!!!!!! "The Spirit Within"

History and Lore of Garnet

Throughout time, there have been many ancient traditions and legends about the garnet. In medieval times, the stones were thought to cure depression, protect against bad dreams, and relieve diseases of the liver, as well as hemorrhages. According to legend, Noah used a finely cut, glowing garnet to illuminate the ark during those dark wet days and nights. Hebrew writers include the garnet as one of the twelve gems in Aaron’s breastplate. Christian tradition considered the blood-red garnet as a symbol of Christ’s sacrifice. The Koran holds that the garnet illuminates the Fourth Heaven of the Moslems. The Greeks said it guarded children from drowning. It was also thought to be potent against poisons.

History and Lore of Garnet


Garnets were highly popular in Europe, in 18th and 19th centuries. They were frequently used for jewelry in the Victorian times. In Old Spain, the pomegranate was a favorite, and as a result of this, so was the garnet. In Spanish astrology, the garnet once represented the sun.

History and Lore of Garnet 

January Birthstone  Garnet

 

The King of Saxony is said to have had a garnet of over 465 carats. Plato had his portrait engraved on a garnet by a Roman engraver. Bohemia, now a part of Czechoslovakia, was once a tremendous source of garnet, and at one time, cutting, polishing, and mounting garnets was a very rich industry in that country. Many Bohemian castles and churches had magnificent interiors decorated with garnet. Bohemian garnets are famous even today, known for their small but beautiful stones set close to each other resembling a pomegranate. Garnet jewelry is still found in the Czech Republic, with the stones still arranged in the traditional, tightly joined way. This ensures that the attraction of the classical Garnet pieces is caused only by the beauty of its stones. The Anglo-Saxons were also fond of garnets. Their jewelry was set with garnets mounted in many forms.

Stone Magic!!!!!!! "The Spirit Within"

History and Lore of Garnet

Garnet is the birthstone for January and the stone that celebrates the 2nd anniversary of marriage. The name “garnet” comes from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike,” in reference to a pomegranate. This reference makes sense as small garnets look like the bright red seeds you find inside in a pomegranate. The garnet has been a popular gem throughout history. Garnets were found as beads in a necklace worn by a young man in a grave that dates back to 3000 B.C. This is proof of the hardness and durability of the stone.

"Garnet, I can’t…” Tears dipped in mascara trickled from Kori’s eyes. “I can’t say what you want to hear. I won’t do that to you.”

Garnet nodded as he patted her hand. “I understand.”

He rose, but her grip held fast. “Don’t go, Garnet, not like this. Stay and talk to me. I can’t lose you.”

“Kori, I told you before, you will never lose me. But right now, I need to clear my head. I’m going for a walk.” He smiled. “Maybe I need some Ben & Jerry’s? You aren’t a generic vanilla type of girl.”

Kori grimaced at his attempt to lighten the mood. He kissed her forehead before walking out the door.

The night was cool, causing Garnet to flip up his collar. He mentally slapped his own forehead. How could he be so dumb? Kori had never led him to believe there was more to the friendship. It was his own wishful thinking that prompted the confession. How many times would she go out with these losers, before noticing what was right in front of her? Maybe he had watched too many of her chick flicks?

He pushed open the door to the convenient store and strolled to the back to get the ice cream, it was definitely a Phish Food kind of night. He grabbed a Cherry Garcia for her, paid, and started back to her house.

His cheeks glowed as he thought about their previous conversation. Could he make this right again, convince her they could remain friends, even though he wanted more? Maybe he would just make her watch romantic comedy after romantic comedy until she realized she was being a fool? Or maybe he should just go home, wallow in his Phish Food and start over tomorrow?

Her house coming into view, Garnet’s heart jumped into his throat. He dropped the bag of ice cream and ran.

Garnet - A Mini Novella, Part 1

By Jennifer McMurrain

Garnet – The stone of stability and devotion

“Garnet, you really don’t have to stay. I’ll be fine,” said Kori, grabbing a couple of sodas from the fridge.

Garnet furrowed his brow as he took the coke from her. “There’s no way I’m leaving you here alone after what you’ve been through. That was a rough one. Shouldn’t we be digging into the Ben & Jerry’s?”

Kori gave him a half smile. “You act like I haven’t been through it a million times before, besides that guy isn’t worth Ben & Jerry’s, he was more of a generic vanilla kind of guy. Seriously one day I’ll give up on all these losers and actually find a nice guy.”

“What if you already have?”Garnet asked.

She raised an eyebrow. “What do you mean, Garnet? This isn’t the first time you’ve had to come ‘rescue’ me after a boyfriend has either left me stranded or dumped me via cheating. My track record speaks for itself. You are the only stable man in my life.” She laughed and took a swig of her coke.

“Exactly.” Garnet put his soda down and took Kori’s from her, before grabbing both her hands. “We’ve been friends for the past ten years. I’ve picked you up from failed dates, held your hair back after drunken binges and God knows what else. I’ve been your shoulder to cry on, your back up plans, and your gossip buddy. Now I want to be more. I want to be it all.”

Kori’s mouth fell open. “But you’re my best friend. If we dated, I’d screw it up. I know I would. Then I’d not only lose a boyfriend, but I’d lose my best friend. I can’t lose you.”

Garnet tucked a blonde curl behind her ear. “You never would. I will always be here for you, just like I always have. Please give me a chance, Kori. I love you.”

Kori shut her eyes. Garnet held his breath and waited for the words he so desperately wanted to hear.
