In all the world there is nobody, nobody like you. Since the beginning of time there has never been another person like you. Nobody has your smile, your eyes, your hands, your hair. Nobody owns your handwriting, your voice. You're special.

Nobody can paint your brushstrokes. Nobody has your taste for food or music or dance or art. Nobody in the universe sees things as you do. In all time there has never been anyone who laughs in exactly your way, and what makes you laugh or cry or think may have a totally different response in another, - So - You're special. 

You're different from any other person who has ever lived in the history of the universe. You are the only one in the whole creation who has your particular set of abilities. There is always someone who is better at one thing or another. Every person is your superior in at least one way. Nobody in the universe can reach the quality of the combination of your talents, your feelings. Like a roomful of musical instruments some might excel in one way or another but nobody can match the symphonic sound when all are played together - Your symphony. Through all eternity no one will ever walk, talk, think or do exactly like you. You're special.. 

You're rare and in all rarity there is enormous value and because of your great value the need for you to imitate anyone else is absolutely wrong.. You're special.. and it's no accident you are here. Please realise that God made you for a special purpose. He has a job for you that nobody else can do as well as you can. Out of the billions of applicants only one is qualified. Only one has the unique and right combination of what it takes and that one is you.. You're special.


Does a mother forget her baby or a woman the child within. Yet even if these forget, I will not forget my own. I have written your name on the palm of My hand - Isaiah 49:15-16

'Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.' ~ Pope John XXIII

'Let nothing trouble you, let nothing make you afraid. All things pass away. God never changes. Patience obtains everything. God alone is enough.' ~ St. Teresa of Avila

From message to the world from our Lady to Medjugorje visionary Mirjana, 25th October 2015: "Dear children! ... Rejoice in the love, little children, that in the eyes of God you are unrepeatable and irreplaceable, because you are God's joy in this world. ... "

"Life is a talent entrusted to us so we can transform it, making it a gift to others.  No human is an iceberg drifting on the ocean of history.  Each one of us belongs to a great family, in which we have our own place and our own role to play.  Love opens eyes and hearts enabling people to make their original and irreplaceable contribution, which, together with the countless deeds of so many brothers and sisters, often distant and unknown, converges to form the mosaic of charity, which continues the tide of history." ~ St. John Paul II in 1995

"Peter and John were going up to the temple area for the three o'clock hour of prayer. And a man crippled from birth was carried and placed at the gate of the temple called "the Beautiful Gate" every day to beg for alms from the people who entered the temple. When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked for alms. But Peter looked intently at him, as did John, and said, "Look at us." He paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them. Peter said, "I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, rise and walk." Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong. He leaped up, stood, and walked around, and went into the temple with them, walking and jumping and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the one who used to sit begging at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, and they were filled with amazement and astonishment at what had happened to him." Acts 3:1-10
