Jesus keeps His promises

I write to tell you of a beautiful miracle God worked in my dying mother.

She died on Jan. 11. I was with her the previous nine days, sitting at her bedside, caring for her, and, most important, praying for her and with her spirit.

She introduced me to the Chaplet of The Divine Mercy several years ago, and I have been saying it frequently. I knew of Christ's promise of saying the Chaplet at the bedside of a dying person and that she would go to heaven. I took Christ at His word and did this for my mother. My son, Matthew, a very devout Catholic, also prayed the Chaplet at her bedside.

I loved my mother with my whole heart and soul. I had been with her for 64 years, and now here she was dying at 94.

Most of these last days, she was at rest and not communicating with us. However, on Monday afternoon, Jan. 10, she sat up in bed, folded her hands as she often did, and opened her eyes wide. To my great surprise, her dark brown eyes were sky blue, like on a bright, sunny day.

I said immediately, "Mother, your eyes are blue." She looked so heavenly. She had a big smile. "I love you," she said. I began to cry. I told her how much I loved her, and soon after, she put her head back down.

Mother died the next day. I can't stop thinking about this blessed miracle. I believe Christ was telling me that my mother was soon to be with Him.

I wish for others to know that God keeps His promises.

My mother's name was Priscilla (Sally) Louise Beasley.

Thank you for your wonderful work. I'm a retired nurse and am reading the Diary of St. Faustina at present.

Thank you, I know your mom is in heaven. I have been frustrated with myself lately because I've stopped the rosary (even thought I get alot from it) I feel frustrated. I'm waiting for answers, and I feel like there coming from God, unroll then I stopped some of my religious habits and feel horrible especially because I know God is preparing something for me. The two things I've been doing is trying to pick up theDivine Mercy and continue reading the Diary of Saint Faustina, keeping this today haves ben ugh. So for right now I said I need a break from this in my head before I start. Especially because through out the day Saint Faustina keeps popping up everywhere and lately I get I the feeling should be doing the Divine Mercy chaplet. So in my break I clicked on one of the stories I saw on my book marks from a long time ago, because I saw Jesus keeps his promises and I feel he wants to give me answers, and I shouldn't keep the running from the chaplet and the Diary Of Saint because Jesus keeps his promises and I should trust him. Before I got to the chaplet and Saint Faustina story in your story all I had was this frustration in my head about them. I thought I can't even read a story and pop. Before I start reading the diary again I want to tell you thank you, I belive you about your moms blue eyes, I wish one day I could be more like you and your son and God bless you.
