I am here, mother.
Let me say just a word, as I have heard the Master's
message and I am glad that he has given you the assurance that
he has, for his love and care means to you so much more than you
can possibly realize. He is so very loving and gracious and powerful,
and when he comes to you he means to bring with him a glory that
is not with him ordinarily as he works in this earth plane.
Well, I love you too, with a greater mother's love which now fills
my soul and makes me so happy and contented in the knowledge that
I am an immortal child of the Father. I know that sometimes you
feel discouraged and almost believe yourself alone and that we are
possibly not what we tell you we are and then we try the harder
to reach your soul and consciousness with our love so that these
feelings may leave you and we generally succeed and are happy when
we do so. Many of your friends are here tonight and you have around
you a wonderful amount of love and effort to make you realize that
you are not alone and you must try to believe what I say.
I am very happy and progressing all the time for I am now higher
in the Celestial Heavens than when I last wrote you and so is Helen,
bless her dear heart, and of course, your grandmother has progressed
and she has become a wonderful spirit all glorious and shining.
The spirits who sometimes write about her and who live in the lower
spheres of course never see her as she really is for they would
not be able to withstand her glorious appearance. But she brings
her love with her to these lower spheres and these spirits can feel
the influence of that love and do so.
She says she will come soon and write you a message
of truth. All send love and of course your mother gives and leaves
with you her love in all its abundance. And I am happy also, my
dear boy. Keep your faith and trust and even though you may live
the years that you have been told you, yet they will be short and
then you will be with us and your happiness will be great.
Good night and God bless you,
Notes. It might appear that this message
does not refer to the message of Jesus of the same date, but it
seems that Jesus message has had a considerable amount of personal
stuff removed. This is obvious from the summary for the same date
on the Tablet.
