Neighbor Has Heavenly "Vision"
by Jeremy Garton
(Weston, West Virginia)
May I share another story? My neighbor near our office is a wonderful person & very good Christian but she fell ill about a year ago so I have included her in many of my rosaries I say. She has an incurable illness with not much time left & it's terrible to watch her go down hill. Ginger did not know that I was saying rosary's for her but she felt the need to share a story with me & this is how it goes!
Ginger told me that she had a vision, at least that's what she thinks it was because she had just laid down for a nap yet she was conscious of her surroundings. Suddenly she found herself in a small little chapel which was very tiny, she said about eight pews & it was brilliant white in color. Jesus then came up behind her, she said that Jesus had a keen sense of her being cold because of her illness & He put a blanket around her shoulders. Jesus then said, lets sit for a moment. They sat in the second pew back on the left hand side.
Jesus then said "you need the love & tenderness that only a Mother arms can provide".
At that moment Jesus looked to the right & motioned for this beautiful lady to come closer. Jesus said to Ginger "This is my Mother, She is with me at all times, she is going to sit with you a while". When Mary sat down with Ginger she said that she had not felt that warm in someones arms sense she was a little girl in her own mothers arms. Now here is the most interesting thing about her story! Ginger has always been Baptist & her father was a Baptist minister for many years.
Ginger shared this story with me & also questioned the purpose of the vision by saying "Jeremy, I don't even know Mary, I have never had any type of devotion to her". All I could think of was the rosary's I have been saying for her. I do not attribute her vision to my rosaries but wouldn't it be wonderful if that were the case?
Catholics have so many visual arts to use in Prayer such as statues, paintings even rosaries but we do not use them enough. After my original story I told on this site, a couple of friends & myself created "The Rosary Station" designed, with the help of God, to get people to display their own rosaries in hopes that it will remind them to Pray the rosary everyday.
God Bless everyone & continue to pick up your Rosary EVERYDAY. As we always say "the Fifteen Promises of Our Lady's Rosary are right at your finger tips".
