A Rose among Roses

God said:

How brave is a little crocus! There may still be frost on the ground, and the little crocus lifts its head anyway.

How brave is a dandelion! It will even grow between cracks in a sidewalk.

These little flowers never feel peremptory. They never feel they are bold or too bold. They just know they are planted in the earth in order to grow and blossom and, so, they enrich the world.

If a bulb and a weed can be so daring, cannot you?

What does a dandelion let hold it back? What excuses does a dandelion have for not blooming?

What do My children perhaps do to hold themselves back from blooming?

A dandelion doesn't think: "Someone will object to my proliferating myself on their lawn." A dandelion doesn't think: "They might use sprays. They might dig me. They will step on me. They won't like me."

A dandelion isn't dumb. It may well know that roses are preferred to himself. But he doesn't let that stop him. A dandelion knows his allegiance is to Me, and that's all he needs to know. That makes him strong. That makes him be himself whatever the obstacles might be. As a matter of fact, nothing is an obstacle for a dandelion. A dandelion deters all assaults. He hangs in there no matter what. No wonder a dandelion is considered a hardy weed! A dandelion doesn't take umbrage. That he is referred to as a hardy weed, well, he takes that as a compliment.

You can well learn from a dandelion. And a rose as well.

Dandelions need no thorns to protect them from the world. Their own stamina is enough. As for roses whose stems are supported with sharp thorns, roses know they are loved regardless. No one seems to say: "Roses have thorns. I won't like them."

Roses don't think: "If only I were perfect and did not carry thorns." No, roses love themselves as they are, thorns and all.

Would that My children would be hardy dandelions and roses, impervious to what someone else might say or think of them. Roses and dandelions are complete and worthy as they are. They do not, not even one of them, find fault with themselves. They accept their worthiness. And this is what I ask of you. This I ask of you: That you accept yourself as My beautiful dandelion, or My beautiful rose, if you prefer. Be my beautiful hardy weed, or be a sweet-smelling rose, or hyacinth, or iris, or gardenia, or peony or anything at all. How many names are there for flowers?

How many names are there for Human Beings? Too many to count. Call yourself by one name: God's Beautiful Child. Will you let that be enough for you? If others call you by other names or throw adjectives at you, pay attention to Me and not to name-callers. They are only name-callers. They don't know anything. They certainly don't know your name and your good standing with Me.

I will teach them. They will learn from Me by and by. You realize, of course, that name-callers would not be name-callers or adjective-throwers if they knew who they themselves were. I do not really label them as name-callers. I use the word as a term to identify to you those who call names as opposed to those who feel the blows of words. All are My beautiful children.

Have the strength of strong sturdy weeds and know that you are, in truth, a beautiful rose among roses. Roses too stand strong.

Whatever it is that you love most in the world, love yourself and everyone else the same way.

Indeed, what is holding us back from blooming ? Can we just see that the old patterns, old thoughts and old fears haven't brought us what we long for ? Can we just choose NEW THOUGHTS NOW ?

Amazing beautiful Heavenletter - THANK YOU !!

Much love to all

My dearest Berit...what a

My dearest Berit...what a blessing to be One with you and all on Heaven Letters! You took the words right out of my mouth/heart/soul/hands as I type this. This morning during my meditation, God spoke to me and asked me why I focus on the fear and what is holding me back from being all I am and all that God created me to be! God clearly has a mission and purpose for me...to bring healing and hope and inspiration to others and yet, at times, I allow old thoughts, patterns, beliefs and FEARS rule the day. So this morning, God told me to visualize what I want and to let everything else fall away and to let God tend to the details of my life and that I am to just BE in God's love and to share this love with everyone and that through my gift of poetry and my own trials and tribulations, I bear witness to God in the world...and when I let thoughts of lack or worry rule the day then I sap myself of my energy to BLOOM and be one of God's beautiful children. I allow what others have said about me or done to me trample the beautiful flower that I am...I am so thankful for this Heaven Letter this day...I am both a dandelion and a rose and yet I do not need any labels...I am one of God's most beautiful creations as we all are...let us find strength and hope and joy and celebrate the beautiful flowers in the field that we are this day...let us turn our faces to God's sunshine so that we may flourish and grow...let us rejoice for this is the day the Lord hath made!
Thank you Gloria...thank You God...thank you everyone!

Beloved Mary, indeed you are

Beloved Mary,

indeed you are God's love, you are IN God's love and you share God's love with every posting and every word and sweetest love waves come through you to all who surround you !
You are a most sweet love ray of God dear Mary !

I was hearing Jeshua today and he talked about ripples, about our thoughts being pebbles that we throw into a sea and the ripples this creates and that they come back to us. So beautiful to choose only thoughts of love to create ripples that go out and come back in whatever form, just being a channel and letting love flow through and love and bless all of God's creation.
Every thought creates a world, no such thing as an idle thought, so, .... let's make more and more riples of love.

Much love to you dear

God said learn from Me
And know that you are in truth
My Beautiful Child

God said love yourself
Love everyone the same way
Stand strong in My love

Love, Light and Aloha!

How simple. How very

How simple. How very beautiful. How.....

I do understand, Gloria, why you always insist that these are not your words. I would be as adamant about this as you are. Only..... well, while I read, what is this almost unbearable sweetness as if God's words were softly sprouting out of my own heart? If we can call it a recognition, are they not my words after all?

Ah, yes, they are yours.

Ah, yes, they are yours. They are ours. They are everybody's.
