Jesus keeps His promises
By Anne Marie Beasley Thobe
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.
