Rose and Other Names

As my husband and I were driving along (actually my husband was at the wheel), I was thinking about people having flower names. Violet, Rose, Marguerite (Daisy), Holly, no lys but there is Alice and in English we have Lily, Iris, Laurel, and then I busted out laughing because it occurred to me that no one is named ranunculus (personne ne s’appelle renoncule). My husband didn’t really find that as funny as I do; I still get a kick out of it and this happened several days ago. I tested it on a friend who is very involved with plants and he laughed immediately, saying “non, ce serait ridicule” (no, that would be ridiculous).

Well, whatever your name is, may you smell sweet. 🙂

Our Creator says: “When you are asked, ‘Which name should one bear in order to please the Lord ?’, reply, ‘It does not matter whether you are called Lentil or Goat, for if you devote your life to God, if you win renown as a penitent, pious, good man, your name will become as grand as Moses’ or Elijah’s.’ ” The Revelation of Arès 36/19b

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.

    Thank you for this beautiful post. No matter how sweet sounding a name is, a name is what you make it, really. You the person, is more important than you the name. Our actions and devotion to God is more important than all the beautiful names we could ever acquire. Have a wonderful week ahead!
