It has been a very long time that I have not written anything. My demanding and hectic schedule has kept me away, but here I am again, so grateful and I’m very happy to be able to share with you, one of many miracles that have occurred just recently.
For me, being in constant communication with God has brought me tremendous peace and goodwill, not that I don’t have challenges, but these challenges become smoother and easier to get through.
Jamaica is paradise, beautiful topography, awesome sights and awesome, warm hearted people. Whenever I get a break from my hectic schedule I go exploring, nature is a great booster and so very relaxing.
It was Saturday, and we decided to go on a road trip to Montego Bay.
Montego Bay is our second city, a tourist mecca, charming, vibrant and fun! It’s a city for anything you want it to be – romance, love, weddings, shopping, wine drinking, exploration, beach bumming, great food from the many local and overseas restaurants, and just overall good fun.
We had great fun, and actually left Mobay a little later than we had hoped to, because we were all having such a good time! It was three hours’ drive back home, so we had to leave.
My brother kinda drove a bit hard and fast (within legality of course), as he needed to get in at a decent hour.
When we reached on the highway, near the vicinity of the toll booth (which is automated), the vehicle suddenly lost power, and I heard my brother exclaim, “What is happening here?”
It was dark, but we were thankful that this happened near the toll booth, as we were able to get some light there.
The problem with the vehicle deemed impossible to fix, “we will have to call a wrecker,” my brother exclaimed! At that point we realized our phones were dead, no charge. One person’s phone had 20% charge, this has never happened to us before, alas, no charged phones to call for help.
I felt fear, too many things were wrong. I was praying from the vehicle lost power, I began to pray harder, more fervently, that’s when I sensed a calm, gentle, loving presence.
It was Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
“Expect a Miracle,” she said.
It came so gently to my soul. I acknowledged Her, and said, “Thank you Dear Mary Mother of Jesus.”
I kept on praying.
Still nothing seemed to be happening, here we were, much later than we expected to be, it’s way late, past midnight and we’re stranded. The highway was lonely except for a few passing vehicles in the opposite direction. We were in serious trouble.
I prayed harder.
My frustrated brother called out, “We have to call a wrecker.” The one remaining phone will soon die. We can’t call for help, and even if we could, they were far away.
I prayed harder.
And then suddenly, as we were about to call the wrecker the roadside assistance team appeared. We breathed a sigh of relief, help had arrived.
God and Mary heard me. They heard my prayers. But still, I continued praying.
The assistance team was befuddled. “This is a big problem,” they said, “We don’t have the proper tools for this.”
Parts were needed to fix the problem.
We can’t purchase parts here, on the highway, after midnight, impossible.
I prayed for a solution. “God I need you. I need your help. Please send a team of Angels to help us.”
“Remember Oh most Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy aid or sought thy intercession was left unaided, inspired by this confidence I fly unto thee, Oh Virgin of Virgins, My Mother, to Thee I come before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful, Oh Mary, Mother of the word incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
I repeated this prayer several times.
A little while after, as I grew weary, and it appeared that nothing was working, I felt a sudden chill.
As I hugged myself, something caught my eye, I looked in the direction it came from, and then I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! I stared, tried to process what I was seeing, blinked my eyes several times, and then looked again.
A fog had appeared, out of nowhere, there was an apparition of The Virgin Mary! There She was! I was the only one facing Her; She stood regal, and so very peaceful, over all the men working on the engine, their backs to Her, unaware of a miracle taking place. My eyes were affixed to Her. She was by a tree, on this mountain top with us.
I thanked Her as I looked upon Her with awe, with tears streaming down my face. I could hardly believe that I was so Blessed to be seeing Her. Me.
Then Her Apparition slowly drifted away.
And as The Virgin Mary went away, a Miraculous solution was found.
The vehicle started and soon we were on our way. My brother had to drive at 20mph. We were climbing the steep mountain, at one point he thought the vehicle would shut off. It didn’t.
Then suddenly; it swerved with us, towards the cliff! I screamed! My brothers gasped. I saw my brother’s grip on the steering wheel, as if he used his bodily strength to maneuver the van. I held on tight to the apparition of The Virgin Mary, as the steering had no power.
I was encouraged, I was faithful, I was still praying.
My brother was able to steer it away from the cliff edge. And we continued stealthily up the mountain, soon we knew we would get to the mountain slope. It should be easier then.
We arrived safely home.
When the mechanics checked his vehicle the following day, they were aghast.
“How did you do it?” they asked. “This van wasn’t supposed to be able to drive at all.”
They expressed, “This is a Miracle!”
My brother smiled and reiterated with a twinkle in his eyes, “Yes, it is indeed a Miracle.”
Love and Blessings,
