While working I could hear a little voice saying “Rose A. Beth”, “Good morning Rose A. Beth”. I just kept doing what I was doing. Again, I hear it and again, so I stopped working and looked around and there to my surprise was a little blonde hair blue eye little boy. This was the first time that I had ever seen them.

He had the biggest smile on his face. When  his mother said that’s not her name, he responded, “yes it is she is my Rose A Beth”.

She asked her little boy “why are you calling her that?” He replied and said “I just made it up and I like it and her.”

I was perplexed, so I looked the names up and following is what I found:

Beth The name Beth is a baby girl name. The name Beth comes from the Hebrew origin. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Beth is: Diminutive of Elisabeth or Elizabeth, from Elisheba, meaning either oath of God, or God is satisfaction.


In tarot, the rose is considered a symbol of balance. The beauty of this flower expresses promise, hope, and new beginnings. It is contrasted by thorns symbolizing defense, loss, and thoughtlessness. A yellow rose symbolizes joy, protection against envious lovers, and a mature love.

My name is not Rose and my name is not Beth, however the definitions of these names gave me a “God Shot”. I work in the public which can at times be trying. This little boy reminded me through calling me Rose A. Beth to offer an oath to God every day to bring hope to all. What a gift out of the “mouth of a babe”!

Knowing that God Loves Me I can Have a better than yesterday.

“Beloved let us Love one another, for Love is of God and every who loves is born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7
