Look at this flower. Has anyone ever looked at a flower and pictured God creating a flower? I really looked at the Peonies today that I have in my house and I said to God, “You did this for me. You did this so I would look over and see these beautiful peonies because You love me so much and you want to see me so happy. You tell me, that when I smile, you are overjoyed. I could die right now, happy.” 🤗🤗
The next time that you see a flower, especially your favorite flower, take a really good look at it, because when God created the world, He saw you and He saw what it is that you were going to love, so that flower that you are looking at, was created just for you. Let’s appreciate the gift that God has given to us, because as we look around, we are living now. Look at the flowers, thank God for the scenery on the journey.
Our Lady comes from Heaven to live inside each one of us. She brings us to Her Son.
Our Lady will lead each one of us, if we choose, to prepare us, in a special way to communicate with Her Son.
Our Lady is the Changer Of Hearts, She is the Golden Thread that sews within each one of us, with us, the magnificent embroidery that is our life’s masterpiece, to present to God at the end of our mortal journey.
Heaven displays these masterpieces. Each masterpiece is different, some were made on parchment paper, some on fabrics, others on steel. No matter what was used as a basis, each foundation was built on a yes.
Yes Jesus, I want your Mother to lead me in a special relationship that brings me even closer to You. I entrust Your Mother to lead me to Heaven. Amen.
This is the Art Of Heaven and we are all called to create our own.
“Did you ever stop to think that God never had to create you? Never! Millions of possible human beings whom God saw when He created you, He left to remain in their nothingness, and they might have worshipped Him a thousand times better than you will ever worship Him. They might have been higher, holier, far more interesting. But He did not create them. There was some nameless thing about you, which attracted Him. It was you with your single, unmated soul, which in the calmness of His Eternal Wisdom and love drew Him to create you. This is our faith.
And the love that you took you out of nothingness in the yesteryears has not abandoned you. He out of nothing this in the yesteryears has not abandoned you. He did not turn you into this world and leave you here on your own to sink or swim. That love has enveloped you and sustained you every moment since then, and it is enveloping you and sustaining you now.”

More testimony from Bella Dodd came from an eye witness, an acquaintance of mine, now deceased, who actually heard Bella Dodd speak in the early 1950s.
Bella Dodd said that the Communists, at that point (1950s), had their men in the highest places in the Catholic Church. These men were working to bring about change so that the Church would no longer be effective against Communism. In the early 1950s, describing the changes that would take place in the future, Bella Dodd predicted “in 10 or 15 years, you will not recognize the Catholic Church. “
She explained that the tactic was to destroy not the institution of the Church, but rather the Faith of the people, and to even use the institution of the Church, if possible, to destroy the Faith through the promotion of a pseudo religion – something that resembles Catholicism, but is not quite the real thing.
Mrs. Dodd also claimed that the Communists were a driving force for the United Nations, and that the Communist owned the World Council Of Churches “lock, stock and barrel.” This is especially noteworthy since the world Council of Churches was a pioneer in “dialogue” and ecumenism. The World Council of Churches boasts that it is “the most nearly comprehensive instrument in the ecumenical movement in the world today.”

How real He was for the Dominican lay woman, Saint Catherine of Siena. “All the way to Heaven is Heaven, “she said, “because of Him Who is the Way living in me. “How real He was for the great Spanish mystic, Saint Teresa of Avila. “Let nothing disturb you; let nothing frighten you. All things are passing. God alone is changeless. And he who has God wants nothing. “ How real He was for the Irish poet Joseph Mary Plunkett. “I see His Blood upon the rose; and in the stars, the glory of His Eyes. His Body gleams amid eternal snows; His tears fall from the skies. I see His Face in every flower. The thunder and singing of the birds are but His Voice. Carven by His power, rocks are His written words. All pathways by His Feet are worn. His strong Heart stirs the ever-beating sea. His Crown Of Thorns is twined with every thorn; His Cross is every tree. “

“Judas, if true love never ceases, how could you, my friend, have come to this? To sell me for 30 pieces of silver, betray me with a kiss? Judas, remember what I taught you. Do not despair while hanging on that rope. It’s because you’ve sinned that I have sought you. I came to give you hope. Judas, let’s pray and hang together, you on your halter, I upon my hill. Dear friend, even if you loved me never, you know I love you still.”
Who is the Holy Spirit? He is the love of God. He is the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity. He is the Father‘s Love for the Son and the Son’s Love for the Father. He is the love that sent our Lord down here. He is the Love that brought Our Lord down here. He is the Love that inspired His every thought, word and action. He is the Love that took Him to Calvary to enable Him to give the last drop of His Blood for you and me – the Breathtaking Love of God for us.
