On June 24th 2019, I said “Yes” to Jesus the Bridegroom’s proposal to consecrate my heart and soul to Him by making a private betrothal promise. The waterfall of healing, grace, and pure love He has showered on me this past year is amazing!
I started Hope’s Garden as a means to sharing the beautiful healing truth of Christ the Bridegroom’s deeply personal and intimate spousal love for each and everyone of us.
He is the one, true, eternal Spouse of every soul regardless of your vocation or state in life. He offers His unconditional love and only asks that we reciprocate by opening our wounded hearts to His loving gaze and saying “Yes, let it be done unto me according to Your word.”
I urge you to place any fears, doubts, and disbelief into our Mother Mary’s hands and ask her to walk you to the Heart of your awaiting Bridegroom.
He is singing to each of you… “Come then, my love, my lovely one, come, for see winter is past, the rains are over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth.”
Here is a prayer to Mary, Mother of the Bride, that I invite you to pray daily as you come to know Christ the Bridegroom of your soul and listen for His invitation to a mutual and pure spousal relationship.
O Mary, Mother of the Bridegroom,
Teach me to love your Son with purity and trust,
selflessness and devotion.Open the eyes
of my heart that I might recognize the Bridegroom
and all His blessings, His kisses from Heaven.
O Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit,
Be my model of chaste spousal love, obedience,
and fearless trust in the will of God.
May I learn from you, the handmaid of the Lord,
to truly say to my beloved Bridegroom,
“Yes, let it be done unto me according to Your word.”
O Mary, Mystical Rose of God,
May I make a living gift of myself
to Christ the Bridegroom and receive His gift of Self
through you from whom He came
in all Truth and Fullness.
Together in His Heart,
