Parables: A Letter from Jesus
y Dear Child,
How are you? I just had to send you this letter to tell you how much I love and care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends. I waited all day, hoping that soon you'd want Me to walk along with you, too.
As evening drew near, I painted you a sunset to close your day and whispered a cool breeze to refresh you, and I waited. You never came. Oh yes, it hurt Me, but I just kept on loving you.
As I watched you fall asleep last night, I longed to touch your brow. I spilled moonlight upon your face, trickling down your cheeks as so many tears have. Again I waited, but you didn't even think of Me. I wanted so much to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you.
The next day I exploded a brilliant sunrise into glorious morning for you. But you awakened late and rushed off for the day. You didn't even notice Me. My sky became cloudy and My tears were the rain. Oh, how I LOVE YOU!
Today you looked so sad and so alone. It makes My heart ache because I understand. My friends let Me down and hurt Me many times too. Oh, if you'd only listen. I really LOVE you. I try to say it in the quiet of the green meadow and in the vibrant blue sky. The wind whispers My love throughout the treetops and spills it into the vivid colors of all the flowers. I shout it to you in the thunder of the great waterfalls, in mountain streams, and I compose love songs for birds to sing for you.
I warm you with the clothing of My warm sunshine and perfume the air with nature's sweet scent. My love for you is deeper than any ocean and greater than the biggest want or need you may have. If you'd only realize how much I really care.
We will spend eternity together in heaven. I know how hard it is on earth. I know because I was once there. I really want to help you.
My Father cares for you and wants to help you, too. Fathers are just that way. So please, call on Me soon. Just call Me, ask Me, talk to Me. It is your decision. I have chosen you. No matter how long it takes, I'll wait forever because I LOVE YOU!
So what should we pray about? The following message from Jesus is based on the writings of Saint Sr. Faustina Kowalska (1905 - 1938) who wrote a diary recording the revelations she received about God's Mercy. St. Faustina's words are in black and Jesus' words are in gold:
"My daughter...why do you not tell Me about everything that concerns you, even the smallest details? Tell Me about everything, and know that this will give Me great joy."
I answered, "But You know about everything, Lord." And Jesus replied to me,
"Yes, I do know; but you should not excuse yourself with the fact that I know, but with childlike simplicity talk to Me about everything, for My ears and heart are inclined towards you, and your words are dear to Me."
