Mom’s chain of miracles-part 2
It was July 2007. I came to visit Mom in the hospital. I found her lying in bed with her tongue hanging out of her mouth. I panicked. I rushed to get help. “ nurse, I think my Mother has had a stroke”, I said. Tests were ordered as soon as Doctor Mancek [ not his real name ] arrived. The brain scan showed dead brain tissue. She did have a stroke, not a bleeding stroke. Mom was comatose for the next few months.
Each day I would come early and stay late when she stayed at the nursing facility. When she was in the hospital, I stayed 24/7. I only went home to care for a few items, and return to the hospital to stay with her.
I prayed for Mom and had many others pray for her as well. I read Mom bible verses regularly, as if she could hear every word, I said to her. I felt she probably could hear me. I wanted her to hear me and respond.
Then one bright day as I sat in her room with her, Mom began singing. I wrote the words down. The song was like none I ever heard before. I was so excited, I thought she was coming out of the coma. “He made all of this”, “ He came down….” She sang. I watched in amazement as Mom continued to sing. It appeared to be two separate songs.
Then Mom fell back into the coma. As I look back on this incident and remember how sick Mom was, I think she was singing the music of heaven and she was probably very close to death. This incident encouraged my heart greatly. I was thankful God gave Mom and I such a beautiful gift. Even though Mom accepted Christ back in the 1940’s, after so much trauma, we both went through, I still worried about her. I had become her Mother in the past years. I thank God, he gave this wonderful confirmation of where she was going. I asked her many times before the coma if she was afraid. Mom was more confident that I had ever seen her. Mom always assured me emphatically she was saved. Copyright 2009
